Fall Lip Care Tips and Tricks

Fall Lip Care Tips and Tricks

Look inside any fashion magazine or take a stroll through a beauty boutique and you will undoubtedly notice what's big in fall makeup: a bold lip. Matte lips and long-wearing stains and lip paint are must-have looks for fall and winter 2018. Top colors right now include a classic red lip, bold berries, deep plums and russet hues. We are here to share how to pull off the hottest looks of the season. 

 

Lip care tips to ensure smooth, soft lips and makeup that looks fresh all day long

  • Exfoliate the lips with a DIY sugar scrub. This will slough off dead skin and help prevent flaking. Smooth lips are key for matte lipstick and lip stain application and berries and purples can be unforgiving if you have dry lips. Think of it like this -- picture a house with paint that has chipped and peeled. If you hired a painter, would he just take out the paint and roll right over the shingles? No. The paint would not go on evenly and it would be bumpy and peel even more. The painter would scrape away the old paint, smooth the wood, make sure it is cleaned properly and prepped for painting. The canvas needs to be smooth for the paint to adhere and look its best. The same goes for your lips. If your lips are chapped or flaky and you apply lipstick, every imperfection show. The color will not properly adhere and your lips will not look good. You need to prepare the lip surface first.

  • Moist lips are key! Nourish with Seed Lip Oil lip for soft, healthy lips. The natural, plant-based oils are just what your lips are craving. Lip oil can be applied any time, but if you are having trouble with achieving a bold fall lip, try applying oil in the morning when you are doing your other skin care. 
  • At night, extra TLC is just what you need. Our Seed Soft Balm is the ultimate in pampering for dryness - you can use on its own or over Lip Oil. I almost think of it the way I do my other skin care -- serum and then my heavier moisturizer at night on my face. I apply lip oil, then my Soft Balm to seal it all in for lasting, impactful hydration.
  • To ensure a flawless, bleed-proof look, clean up the edges of the lip with concealer. Make sure the concealer matches your skin or it will draw attention to the area rather than camouflaging any mistakes. You can also try a flesh toned lip liner to seal in color.

The Important Difference Between Unscented and Fragrance Free
The Important Difference Between Unscented and Fragrance Free

October 01, 2018 1 Comment

Fragrance free is what you are looking for.

This means that no fragrances (artificial or otherwise) have been added to the product (or should mean that, watch for tougher regulations monitoring that coming).  As we know, artificial fragrances are the #1 irritant on skin and one of the most potentially harmful ingredients we can encounter - because they contain phthalates -- see more information below.

They are linked to many health issues, from allergies and asthma to cancer. Simply put, these fragrances are making people sick. In its truest definition, "fragrance free," means you should not have to worry about those nasty synthetics. Nothing should be added to remove the natural scents from the butters, oils, and other natural ingredients in the products.  In other words, you may smell some of the product’s ingredients such as the olive oil or shea butter.

Did you know?

Honestly, it can be confusing. Many people assume that unscented and fragrance free are interchangeable terms. This is wrong, however.

How is Seed Soft Balm different from other natural skin care balms?
How is Seed Soft Balm different from other natural skin care balms?

Yes, Seed Soft Balm is a luxury skin balm. While there are other luxury body balm products out there. they tend to feature long ingredients lists that include “everything but the kitchen skin” -- a long ingredients list doesn’t equate to a better product. It has a greater chance of causing skin reactions, and that is something we are very mindful of here at Seed.

There is a method to our madness. Have you ever noticed that "everything but the kitchen sink" approach to formulation that I mentioned above? When you look at labels, there are something more than 20 ingredients in a single product! More doesn't equal better. Actually, the truth is that when you throw in many different oils and botanicals, they can counteract each other's effects, reducing the benefits. We don't want that. They also are MUCH more likely to cause an allergic response.
