DAILY DOSE | BEAUTY TIP
By Huda Heidi Kattan
As much as I constantly emphasize the importance of sunblock, I somehow managed to get myself a pretty good sunburn on my lips after an all day beach shoot this past week. My lips feel terrible and rough, not exactly the way I usually like them! It’s important to remember to use sunscreen on your lips as well as all over your face! Just in case you do get a sunburn, rash or dry lips, here are some great tips for adding some moisture back into your lips!
HOW TO HEAL YOUR LIPS ASAP:
- Apply sunscreen or a chap stick with some SPF! TRUST ME! You will thank me for this! I like the MAC Lip Conditioner Stick with SPF 15
- Don’t lick your lips! It’s important to avoid any water or saliva on your lips as it may cause irritation and excessive dryness. Instead, use a moisturizing lip balm every time after you drink or eat and whenever they feel chapped. I love Smith’s Rose Lip Balm, available at Makeup Etc in Palm Strip and at Sephora.com
- Use a medicated overnight lip balm! As much as we don’t like to admit it, we salivate when we sleep. That’s right princess, we all slobber! Unfortunately, this can lead to quite a bit of over drying to our super sensitive skin on our lips. It’s important to use an overnight lip balm. Carmex has been a favorite of many beauty magazines for overnight protection
- Try adding a Touch of Zinc! Zinc has been known to be great for areas of extreme of sensitivity and helps heal and protect. A great product is Zinc and Aloe Lip Balm (which also has sunscreen) by Aloe Up. It’s a great way to speed the healing process!
- Help them Heal! If you’re feeling a bit adventurous, try adding a touch of Neosporin or any ointment cream that aids in the healing of skin. Add just a dot of the ointment to your lips while you sleep and it will help deliver the right ingredients to a faster recovery!
