Cracked lips begone with lip oil!

From winter's chilly, dry air to summer's heat and wind, harsh climates can dehydrate your lips. Certain lip cosmetics, such as long-lasting lipstick, can also severely contribute to dryness. Unfortunately, lip balm isn't always enough to prevent dryness and cracking. Instead of reapplying your lip balm or lip gloss over and over, try lip oil. Lip oils not only provide a gorgeous, glossy shine to your lips, but they also feed, soften, and protect them from drying and cracking.

So, what exactly is lip oil and how does it work? Here's everything you need to know about lip oil, including its uses and advantages.

What is lip oil?

Lip oil is a cosmetic product that you apply to your lips to provide moisture and a high-shine finish. While lip oils are thinner and more liquid-based than other lip treatments like lip balm or lip gloss, they provide substantial hydration to your pout for a healthy, moisturized appearance. Lip oils give the lips a glossy shine and can be applied alone, beneath lipstick, or on top of lipstick to protect them from dryness and cracking.

How do you use it?

Apply nourishing lip oil to clean lips with a rollerball applicator or your fingers for an even, glossy finish. To fight dryness, use lip treatment oil every few hours or as needed. However, we always recommend reading the instructions before using any beauty product.

What are its benefits?

Lips, unlike the rest of your body's skin, lack sebaceous oil glands, making them more susceptible to dryness and injury. Lip oils hydrate deeply while also giving a layer of protection against harsh environments. Natural lip oils include beneficial elements, such as honey, which help to restore chapped or cracked lips to a healthy and balanced condition.

Where can I find it?

Purchasing lip oil is only clicks away or even in your neck of the woods because you can find it online or in-store at any supermarket, beauty shop, or pharmacy. Head over to the makeup section and search for lip oils. From there, an array of brands and products should pop up. If you are a DIY queen, you may be able to make your own! Here’s a simple recipe that you can try out.

When it comes to your beauty regimen, nothing beats a multitasking multitasker. Your lips will be softer, smoother, and plumper with a naturally healthy sheen with each lip oil application. For more tips on how to improve your skincare routine, check out our blog.
