Lip care is crucial for men. Yes, you heard that right! Lip care is an important part of health and beauty routines for men similar to that of women. The simple explanation for this is the skin on your lips is thinner than it is on the rest of your body, therefore it’s also more prone to dryness and cracking. The three fundamentals of skincare regime like cleansing, exfoliating and moisturizing are helpful in making your lips look and feel smooth, soft and hydrated. Threats to your lips come from everywhere be it sunburn, windburn, cold and dry air, bacteria, or cold sores. Hence, it is important to follow some lip care routines just like a skincare routine to keep your lips strong and smooth.
“Similar to brushing your teeth or washing your face before bedtime, you can incorporate a lip care routine into your night-time schedule. If you’ve gone most of the day without applying any lip balm, then you can exfoliate your lips twice in a week. This is helpful in removing any dirt or other particles from your lips that you may have collected throughout the day” added Ms. Lalita Arya, VP, Dermapuritys.
Dermapuritys has rounded up 10 Simple Lip Care Tips for Men:
