SPRING may be here but the changeable whether can still wreak havoc on dry lips so why not give them a treat?
Today’s generation of lipsticks are no longer designed simply to offer you the latest colour trends. Now, natural-friendly brands are focussing on lip health as well as appearance.
To give yourself a mini mouth makeover at home, first gently massage in a lip scrub. Available from brands such as Herbivore (€15.86 from www.revolveclothing.es), whose all-natural exfoliant contains coconut oil, sugar, and rose essential oil for a luxurious experience. Or for a quick fix, mix your own from equal parts of brown sugar and honey.
After sloughing off any dry skin, it is time to lock in moisture with a chemical-free hydrator, such as a small amount of pure coconut oil.
Now seal the deal by nourishing your newly-beautified lips while keeping on trend with the latest colours. The Luxury Lipstick by Rodin (€33.48 from www.revolveclothing.es) contains rose flower wax, argan oil, apricot oil, and jasmine oil, all to promote lip health.
The formula is also enriched with neroli oil, lavender flower wax, as well as vitamins C and E to help nourish and soften lips.
Available in eight shades, from demure nudes and berries and riotous reds, this product promises to deliver rich, comfortable and highly-pigmented colour with a soft matte finish.
Alternatively, for a hint of colour, check out L’Oreal Paris Lip Sexy Balm Sheers (€6.95 from www.maquillalia.com). Available in six shades, these balms promise long-lasting hydration with a sheer pop of shade.
