GIVE YOUR LIPS SOME TLC AND PUCKER UP FOR AUTUMN
Hello, new season lips! Whether you’re rocking rose-tinted tones or going for a berry-stained hue, one thing’s for sure – your lips need to be soft, smooth and perfectly prepped.
So, pucker up and check out our top five tips for luscious, autumn-ready lips.
SCRUB AND POLISH YOUR LIPS
Transform flaky, dry lips into kissably-soft lips with a weekly scrub. Simply mix a little sugar into your lip balm, and gently massage onto your lips in circular motions to buff away dry flakes and reveal a smooth pout. Rinse with warm water and remember to rehydrate with plenty of lip balm – preferably one with aloe vera to help calm and soothe irritated lips.
CHEAT YOUR WAY TO PLUMP LIPS
Fancy waking up to soft, plump lips? Prep the night before by slathering on a generous layer of lip balm before you go to bed, and allow the nourishing ingredients to get to work by locking in lip-plumping moisture while you sleep. Try a super-rich lip balm with cocoa butter, to help retain essential moisture, and keep your lips looking fuller for longer.
ADD A TINT OF COLOUR
Make the most of the new season and update your look with a wash of autumn-toned tinted lip balm. These multi-tasking handbag heroes are the perfect blend of lip colour and care, in one handy tin. For a ‘your lips, but better’ finish, go for a rose-tinted balm. Your autumn-parched lips will benefit from the ultra-conditioning formula, while providing a subtle hit of warm, autumnal colour.
DON’T FORGET YOUR CUTICLES
As the weather shifts and the air becomes cooler, you might find it’s not just your skin and lips that are feeling the drying effects of autumn, but your nails and cuticles too. Keeping your dry cuticles conditioned is easy – when applying lip balm with your fingertip, simply wipe any excess balm onto your cuticles for a nourishing treat!
TONE DOWN A VIBRANT LIPSTICK
Love this autumn’s trend of deep berry lips but not quite ready for bright colours? Try swiping a clear lip balm over your lippy to transform your full-pigmented lipstick into a soft, berry-stained wash. What’s more, dehydrated lips will love the extra moisture boost.
