The days are getting longer, the temperatures are swiftly rising and wearing your favorite sundress season is right around the corner. And while you might be busy adjusting your spring skincare routine to the warm weather (as you should), there is one important part of your routine that’s important to remember: your lips. Sunny days and steamy temps can take a toll on your pout. Even behind a face mask, the lips take on a lot, which is why it is so important to give them the attention they deserve.
So, if you find yourself wishing for softer, smoother lips this time of year (aren’t we all), keep on scrolling to discover the Aloette 3-step skincare routine for totally kissable lips:
Step 1 : Exfoliate the Lips
Everyone gets chapped lips from time to time—that’s why exfoliating your lips 1-2x times a week is vital if you want smoother and healthier-looking pout. Using a lip exfoliator or balm made with gentle exfoliants can help slough away the dry, dull skin that can build up on the lips over time. Even better, incorporating a lip scrub that is packed with hydrating ingredients—like Aloe Vera, Peppermint and plant-based oils—will help nourish the lips while helping to exfoliant. No dryness here!
Try: Soothe N’ Smooth | Help revive the look of dry, flakey lips with a 2-in-1 Lip Balm & Exfoliator. This gentle lip scrub is formulated with nourishing Aloe Vera and invigorating Peppermint to help exfoliate dead skin, remove product buildup and soothe the lips as it locks in moisture.
Step 2: Help Hydrate and Plump
Just like you prime your skin, you need to prime your lips to help boost hydration and encourage a smooth lipstick application. Try reaching for a Hydrating Lip Volumizer that indulges the lips to nourishing skincare ingredients while helping amp up the volume and soften the look of your lips. Ingredients like Aloe Vera, Acai Oil and Cocoa Butter are great lip hydrators, as they are gentle enough on delicate skin but moisturizing enough to help smooth lines and plump the look of lips.
Try: Complete Contour| Formulated with Raspberry Oil and Cocoa Butter, this Hydrating Lip Volumizer coats the pout in a lightweight balm that delivers instant hydration while helping to smooth, soften and plump the look of dry, chapped lips.
Step 3: Add Color and Shine
The moment we have all been waiting for. Now that your pout is prepped and primed, it is time to add a burst of lip color. Whether you prefer a glossy look or a matte lipstick statement, make sure to swipe on products that will continue to hydrate your lips—not take away all your hard work! Reading the ingredient list and selecting lip-loving formulas that feature plant-based oils, extracts and vitamins is a fool-proof way to make sure your pout is getting the hydrating skincare routine it needs—even under your lip color.
