Finally something to pamper our LIPS!!
But before that……
Did you know that lips do not sweat? That’s because lips don’t have sweat glands! Sweat glands play a crucial role of moisturizing the skin and since, lips don’t have sweat glands they dry out faster than any other part of the body..
Did you know that lips also lack natural protective oil? No sweat glands and no oil equates to vulnerability! This means that lips are highly exposed to cold, wind and sun. The only way to protect the lips from these natural elements is to use some kind of lip balm. For women, lipsticks work equally well..
Did you know that your lips grow thinner as you grow old? This happens because with aging, the collagen production of body decreases. Collagen is a vital protein and one of its functions is to give shape to the lips. Reduced production of collagen implies that lips start losing their plumpness.
With that, let me share with you my lip care pampering kit!! I bought these on Qoo10 for S$18.70 – consist of 1 lip polish, 1 lip treatment & 5 lip mask!
Lip Polish – S$6.90 each
Lip Treatment – S$6.90 each
Lip Mask – S$2.00 each
I bought them as a bundle pack hence a lower price instead of S$23.80 (if u do the math)..
LIP POLISH: Acts like a lip scrub. It exfoliate your lip dead skin and fix those rough lips surface, leaving your lips smooth and soft.
The beauty of it is that it contain Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, Ginkgo Biloba Leaves Extract, Olive Oil, Sweet Flora Flavour!
Sweet Flora.. seriously?? no wonder it smells so nice!!!
The grain of beads in this polish is pretty gentle yet effective. Although it’s not the best lip scrub I had used but definitely not the worst!
HOW TO USE: Apply on wet lips and gently rub for 20-30 secs. After that wash with lukewarm water. I usually do this after shower as the effect seems better..
LIP TREATMENT: Like a lip balm, Pretty moisturizing and it give a pretty nice shine actually. It contains Almond Oil, Babassu Oil and Sweet Flora Flavor!
HOW TO USE: Apply as last step after your lip polish/lip mask.
So here’s how I usually do it…
- Scrub for 30 sec
- Mask for 20-30 mins (depends on my mood)
- Apply lip treatment
- Go to sleep!
Usually, I will wake up with a soft moisturized lips!
Below is a comparison of my lips before and after lip scrub & mask!
I’m sure u can see the difference. Looks more moisturized, healthier and “younger” – less less wrinkle leh or am I imagining things!
Now since we’re talking about lips, let me share more with you more about our sexy lips..
Did you know that lip cancer is more prevalent in men than in women? This is because men usually don’t use lip balms and using lipsticks is simply out of question for men. Women on the other hand usually use lipsticks that keep their lips protected from harmful UV rays of Sun.
Did you know that lips are very sensitive – more sensitive than genitals? Because of numerous nerve ending they possess, lips are extremely sensitive to touch or tactile senses. This is why toddlers and babies tend to explore new things by touching them with lips.
Did you know that there is a flower in South America called “Hooker’s Lips” because it resemble a set of hooker’s lip? It can be found in the tropical rain forests of Central and South America. It evolved into its current shape to attract hummingbirds and butterflies.
