Winter + mask, the wrong combo
Not surprisingly, the winter period requires special attention to take care of this area. “We often have to deal with pretty drastic temperature changes between overheated interiors and the cold outside. The lips are all the more prone to dryness. ” Professor Bader therefore recommends applying, during the colder months, very nourishing formulas that will help retain moisture in the skin "but also provide real protection to resist external aggressions". These advices apply particularly in this period when an additional test is imposed: that of the mask. “It is essential to regularly apply a dedicated treatment to build a barrier effect that will prevent water loss and nourish them.”
Act against the effects of time
To keep lips soft and full over the years, again it is important not to neglect the attention given to this area. “The collagen in our lips (as in all of our skin) begins to decrease with age. Therefore, to prevent the first signs of aging, treating this part should really be part of our daily routine, ”explains the Swiss expert. He therefore recommends applying a dedicated treatment at least morning and evening. “On the other hand, I do not recommend erasing this area directly, but rather the surrounding skin. Then, you can apply your balm whenever you want, as many times as you want during the day to maintain hydration and strengthen its barrier role. "
Last tip to make sure the mouth stays beautiful? A light massage that can help stimulate circulation in the lips, and therefore boost the production of natural collagen. And Professor Bader concludes with the ultimate advice: “Make sure you drink enough water every day!”
