5 Steps to Lip Repair - Autumn and Winter

5 Steps to Lip Repair - Autumn and Winter

The skin tissue structure layer on the lips is very thin, only 1/3 of the body skin thick. Because it has no sweat holes and no skin oil glands, it is naturally particularly sensitive to dry, low temperatures, and other environments. The dryness of the lips can cause obvious lip wrinkles, peeling off the epidermis, and tarnish the color of the lipstick. Even oily lipsticks cannot improve this situation. In addition, the muscles of the lips are thin and tender. Smiling, drinking, eating, and talking can easily affect our lips and wrinkles occur.

4 reasons for lip wrinkles:

  1. There are no subcutaneous fat glands on the lips, and they will not secrete water and oil by themselves, so the lips lack a natural protective membrane. In the event of dry weather, the lips are the most vulnerable sensitive parts.
  2. The lip skin is as fragile as the eye area and has no resistance to ultraviolet rays in the sun. It is also the area that is most likely to expose your age.
  3. As we get older, the collagen in the lip skin's stratum corneum continues to decrease and its elasticity becomes weaker, which will directly cause the lip skin to sag, wrinkles increase, and even spread beyond the lip line.
  4. Bad lifestyle habits, such as smoking, alcohol abuse, or insufficient removal of lip makeup, can also cause various problems on the lip skin.

5 steps of lip care:

  1. Lip makeup removal

Data shows that lips are the part with the longest average makeup time. If makeup is not removed properly, the lipstick accumulated in the lip gaps will gradually hinder the normal metabolism of the lip skin, deepen the lip color and darken. Especially because the lips do not have oil secretion glands, the makeup removal is not clean, and the dirt will not automatically fall off through the oil secreted by the skin. Over time, the lips will appear to age. Lip skin is more sensitive. So when choosing makeup remover, try to choose a gentle special lip makeup remover. Press the lip skin with a piece of clean cotton pad that is sufficiently moistened with lip makeup remover, and leave it for about 10 seconds. After the pigment in the lipstick is fully dissolved, then gently wipe from the corner of the mouth to the center. It is recommended to wipe gently 2-3 times.


  1. Lip balm: the most moisturizing care for lips

Lip balm is a cosmetic specially used for lip moisturizing and maintenance. It can effectively prevent peeling, lip wrinkles, and dullness caused by dryness on the lip skin or other reasons. The main ingredients of lip balm include beeswax, petrolatum, mint, and aloe vera. In addition, in order to strengthen the moisturizing function of lip balm, vitamins, salicylic acid, and other ingredients are added. Nowadays, lip balm also adds sun protection function.



  1. Lip massage: lighten lip wrinkles and brighten lip tone

Massage your lip regularly. Use your index finger and thumb to pinch the upper lip, keep your index finger still, and gently move your thumb to massage the upper lip; then use your index finger and thumb to pinch your lower lip, keep your thumb still, and gently move your index finger to massage your lower lip. . Then massage the upper and lower lips rhythmically in the opposite direction. Repeat several times. This massage method can eliminate or reduce the horizontal wrinkles of the lip.



  1. Vitamins and water: make lips softer

Drink plenty of water every day, eat vegetables and fruits rich in vitamins, and take tablets containing vitamin A, vitamin B, and vitamin C in moderation. These can improve the dryness of the lips and make the lips healthy and moisturized.

  1. Get rid of bad little actions: lips are no longer dry

I wonder if you always lick your lips accidentally? In fact, this is a very natural reaction, but it will cause damage to your lips. When you lick your lips with your tongue, due to the dry air outside, the moisture brought by saliva will not only evaporate quickly but will also take away the very little moisture of the lips, resulting in a vicious cycle of dryness. To get rid of such bad habits, on the one hand, you must deliberately quit the habit of licking your lips, and on the other hand, you must use lip balm to keep your lips moisturized and no longer dry.
