~ Achieve a healthy pout this summer ~

Happy Tuesday! I wanted to share tips from Dr. Whitney Bowe on how to achieve a healthy pout this summer and beyond.

image001-3

1.)    Stay away from products with plumping agents.

  1. We all know today’s trend is plump lips, but ingredients like menthol and camphor sting – a telltale sign you’re having a reaction to it. Additionally, products like these do not contain nourishing ingredients to lock in moisture so can cause drying of the lips.

 

2.)    Instead, seek out nourishing ingredients to provide immediate relief from dryness AND long-term moisture.

  1. Shea butter is the fat extracted from the nut of the African Shea tree, which grows naturally in West Africa. It’s a key hydrator but also has proven anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, and it is rich in Vitamin E, which helps protect against environmental stressors. I love that eos Lip Balms are made with shea butter and have been shown through testing to lock hydration and moisture into your lips for up to 8 hours. My favorite is eos Pure & Free – it’s made with all-organic ingredients, including shea butter and coconut oil, to deliver hydration for soft, healthy-looking lips.

eos pure & free lip balm ($4.49, Target): Pure & Free with 7 all-organic ingredients, including shea butter and coconut oil, deliver hydration for beautifully soft, healthy-looking lips.

> Certified Organic & 100% Natural

> Hypoallergenic

> Dermatologist tested

> Gluten-free

> GMO-free

> Paraben & petrolatum-free

> Not tested on animals

 

3.)    Stop licking your lips!

  1. Our skin has a thick stratum corneum to keep it protected, but our lips do not, so they are more prone to dryness and irritation. If you lick your lips, you are going to experience even more chapped irritation – it’s a vicious cycle because your saliva evaporates and causes you to keep licking to avoid the drying sensation. Saliva also breaks down the delicate tissues and compromises the barrier. Think about what happens when you put a saltine cracker in your mouth. Even without chewing, it will become soft.  That’s the saliva in your mouth slowly digesting the cracker into its building blocks!  You don’t want saliva to eat away at your lips so try not to lick your lips!

 

4.)    How many times per day should you lip balm?

  1. Apply lip balm after eating or drinking to lock in moisture. Also apply it right before bed. If you sleep with your mouth open, you are going to dry your lips out even more, so I recommend that my patients apply a bit of lip balm right before bed. Apply your balm just outside the borders of your lip line as well because it’s the outer perimeter of your lips that is often chapped!  Another tip is to try to avoid those matte, or long lasting lip stains. Those tend to be very drying. If you do use them, make sure to prime the lips first with a hydrating balm!

~ Add the MakeupDrop Hybrid to your makeup bag ~

From the creators of the original silicone makeup applicator comes the next generation of flawless application for skincare, foundation, blush, highlighter and concealer. The MakeupDrop™ Hybrid is the newest innovation to revamp any makeup bag. The super soft, serenity colored applicator features two uniquely distinct parts: the Silicone Drop, which acts as a clean and waste-free surface for initial makeup application, and the Super Soft Sponge which helps blend and achieve an airbrushed glow.

While traditional beauty sponges soak up tons of extra product, the Hybrid—like all MakeupDrop™ products—minimizes product wasted by using the least amount of makeup possible. The silicone pad is naturally anti-bacterial and can stop the transfer of germs that can cause breakouts and irritation. The super soft- non-latex sponge is easy clean. Simply use soap and water and let dry overnight.
