Dry air, sun exposure, low temperatures, icy wind, hot or cold food and drinks, dehydration – your lips are a true hero for enduring extreme challenges every day. Adding to the mix the habit of frequently licking the lips due to medical conditions, environment or anxiety, the result may be severely dry lips, flaking, bleeding, and rashes. The skin on the lips is very thin and a lot more delicate than the rest of your body. Why do you ask? A large part is due to the fact your lips don’t contain oil glands, so they don’t produce sebum. Without this layer of protection, lips need extra care to avoid drying and discomfort. Luckily, there is a lip treatment that can assist your daily lip balm.
What does a lip mask do?
A lip sleeping mask is a lot like a facial overnight mask but is specially designed to moisturize lips. It is an overnight lip treatment which has a rich texture and is formulated with nutrients and vitamins to nourish and protect the lips. Leave on lip masks are designed to work while you sleep and lock in moisture to help make your lips look and feel smooth, soft and ready even for the most challenging matte lipstick.
What is the difference between a lip balm and a lip mask?
Lip balms are great for lip hydration during the day, they are easy to apply on-the-go and provide instant relief. However, some only last a short amount of time, absorb quickly, or may vanish as you talk or eat, meaning you may have to reapply your lip balm quite often. A lip mask usually has a richer texture and creates a barrier to seal in the powerful nutrients packed into the formula. Overnight lip masks last longer on the lips to moisturize lips and revive them. Lip treatments are often so rich that there may be a residue on your lips when you wake up the next morning. Lips are often one of the first areas to show signs of aging, such as fine lines and loss of volume. Lip masks help to lock in hydration, moisturize lips with nourishing oils and some may even target certain concerns such as lip aging, thanks to the active ingredients added to their formulations.
How do you apply an overnight lip mask?
Giving your lips an extra boost of moisturization and care is very simple and easy. Just follow your regular skincare routine, starting with a cleansed face and then applying your favorite products. Finish off your overnight routine with a generous layer of Mario Badescu’s Lip Mask with Acai and Vanilla before going to bed and gently wipe or wash off the excess when you wake up.
