Lip mask is similar to face mask. Lip mask is used to protect the skin of the lips. It is not commonly used, so many people have difficulty using it after buying it. How can natural lip mask be used most effectively?
Natural lip masks are also known as "face masks" for the lips. Most lip masks contain exfoliating ingredients and functional ingredients that moisturize the lips. The purpose of using a lip mask is to moisturize and soften the lips, remove aging keratin, provide nutrition and radiance to the lips, and reduce lip pigmentation. Since lip care products are directly applied to the lips and are very close to the mouth, lip masks must not contain harmful ingredients to humans, and there is no need to worry about them being eaten.
The structure of the skin tissue on the lips is very thin, only one-third of the thickness of the body's skin. Since the lips do not have sweat glands or sebaceous glands, they are particularly sensitive to dry air, low temperatures, and other environmental factors that tend to dry out in the fall. Lip dryness can cause lip lines to be prominent, epidermal shedding, lipstick to fade, and even oily lipsticks cannot improve this situation. In addition, the muscles of the lips are thin and delicate, so smiling, drinking water, eating, and talking can easily cause lip lines. Using natural lip masks can moisturize and soften the lips, remove aging keratin, provide nutrition and radiance to the lips, reduce lip pigmentation, and smooth lip lines.
1. Clean the skin of the lips. Before applying the natural lip mask, use a lip-specific makeup remover oil to clean the lips, especially for those who like to apply lipsticks, and perform deep cleaning. After cleansing, you can use a lip exfoliating product with mint formula to remove dead skin on the lips. It is recommended to exfoliate once a month.
2. Massage the skin of the lips. After cleaning, you can use your fingers to massage the lips. Generally, you can use your index finger and thumb to pinch the upper lip. The thumb does not move, use the index finger to massage the upper lip in a circular motion, and pay attention to gentle movements. Then, pinch the lower lip with your index finger and thumb, and use your thumb to massage the lower lip gently. Then, massage the upper and lower lips in the opposite direction in a rhythmic manner, repeatedly for several times.
3. Apply the lip mask. After massaging, apply the prepared natural lip mask according to the shape of the lips. You can also cover it with a cold towel and wipe off the lip mask after about 10 minutes. Note that the lip mask can be used 1-2 times a week. After applying the lip mask, you can apply a lip balm or other moisturizing product again to enhance the effect of the lip mask. You can choose to apply the natural lip mask before going to bed at night. At this time, the skin's ability to absorb nutrients in the lip mask is enhanced. Moreover, cleaning the lips at night can help the lip mask penetrate the skin better. Generally, after applying the lip mask, the condition of the lip skin can be greatly improved the next day.
