#WokeUpLikeThis – Overnight Beauty Remedies – Lips
Overnight beauty products, pt. 5: Lips
The weather takes a toll on our lips – fluctuating temperatures and the wind greatly dehydrate and cause them to dry out and peel. Since the weather has been getting warmer and warmer outside, it is time to improve the condition of your lips by incorporating moisture and exfoliation into your bedtime routine. To ensure that you always have a perfect pout, check out the following suggestions for overnight lip treatments:
Kiss me tonight by philosophy is an overnight lip treatment that relieves dryness and soothes lips to restore a healthy, supple, rosy appearance. In addition, the treatment adds definition to the lips by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the lips.
Crème de Rose by Dior is a lip balm with sunscreen in it, so it can be used everyday as a base for your lipstick and overnight as a deeply-hydrating lip treatment. The lip balm has a plumping effect with a rosy scent and a soft, pink color. It is infused with Vitamins A and E, which energize the lips, and Shea Butter, which is hydrating and smoothing.
None of Your Beeswax by LUSH paired with Mint Julips by LUSH is a very effective way to keep your lips soft and smooth all day long. Mint Julips is a sugar-based scrub that removes the dead skin cells from your lips to promote the growth of fresh cells and improve the overall appearance of your lips. None of Your Beeswax is a beeswax-based lip balm that infuses your lips with compounds derived from lemon, mandarin, and vanilla, ensuring that your lips are soft and supple.
DIY Lip Treatment:
If you want to create your own overnight lip moisturizer, put honey and olive oil (1:1 ratio) into a small glass container. The glass will preserve your product so that it stays fresh for longer; apply the mixture to your lips before bed. This overnight moisturizer can also serve as an exfoliator – by adding some brown sugar into the mixture and rubbing it over your lips, you will remove the top layer of your lips and infuse them with the beneficial, moisturizing properties of honey and olive oil. The best part is that you can lick this product off your lips because it is 100% natural!
