All about the lip barrier

Compared to the skin on our bodies, the lip barrier (the skin on our lips), is thin and fragile with fewer protective layers. So how do you know if your lips are healthy or need a little extra love? Read on.

Cracked or chapped?

Our lips don’t have oil glands and cannot self-lubricate, so they are more vulnerable to moisture loss and damage.

Endless meetings or new social engagements out of home?

Our lips withstand constant movement and are exposed to environmental aggressors like cold, sun, and wind every day. Short of taking a vow of silence and turning down plans, the best way to defend your lip barrier is to treat it right.

Day or night?

Lips need extra TLC and smart science. Use a lip mask during the day to visibly support lip health and help with environmental aggressors, and at night to restore lost moisture.

 Prep your pout.

With many of us contemplating makeup again, keep your lips soft and hydrated and ready for a bold lip by treating them with a barrier boosting product.

May we suggest?

When it comes to healthy looking skin, we’ve literally got you covered from head to toe. Our NEW Hyaluronic Omega Moisture Lip Mask is clinically shown to strengthen the lip barrier for lasting moisture. Better than a balm, this deeply nourishing formula is packed with Omega-Rich Fatty Acids for a replenishing layer to soothe dryness and seal in crucial hydrators. Starts out as a rich, velvety, blackberry-flavored balm in its jar. Transforms into a transparent, silky veil that smooths dry, dehydrated lips for a perfect pucker.
