3 Steps For Healthy Lips

Healthy lips is easy as 1, 2, 3! Protect, exfoliate and hydrate. Find out why these steps are important to maintain healthy lips and a few of our favorite products to try. Let’s take a deep dive into lip care!

Steps Toward Healthy Lips:
#1. Protection

Did you know? UV rays can also effect your lips! Creating signs of early again alongside hyperpigmentation. Well don’t worry, you can avoid aging lips by lather on that protection! Applying a lip balm with SPF 30 or higher is a safe bet for guarding your lips from the sun! It’s a bit tricky finding a lip product with SPF, but not impossible. Here’s a few to help you get started.

#2. Occasional Exfoliation

There are exfoliants just for lips! And trust us when we tell you, your lips will feel oh-so-silky-smooth afterwards. That’s because dead skin easily piles up on our lips, and by using a sugar scrub or lip product with soft grainy particles, it can help to smoothen out our lips. But don’t exfoliate too often, just once in a while! Not sure of any lips scrubs off the top of your head? No worries, we have a few suggestions.

  1. This is a really great article. It seems like every time I start thinking about a certain product or skin issue, suddenly Picky posts something or I get a notification about it giving me the answers I need. I am going tomorrow to buy some new lip care products and then suddenly here the article pops up as soon as I click into the app.
