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.

How to protect your skin from the harsh winter elements
How to protect your skin from the harsh winter elements

Did you know that this cold, dry winter weather can have a major impact on your skin care routine? Our friends near the Great Lakes are seeing significant amounts of snowfall. My friend Lauren in West Seneca, New York has more than five FEET of snow. Let’s take a look at the low humidity and frigid temperatures affect your skin.

Itchiness and a tight feeling are common skin issues related to dry air, but there are some skin care tips you can use to help tackle the problem.

  • Be gentle on your skin. When you dry off after bathing, be sure to pat your skin dry. Don’t rub.
  • Always follow your shower or bath with a rich cream layered over body oil.
  • Look for cream formulations instead of lotions and fluids for facial hydration.
  • Avoid ingredients such as alcohol and sulfates, which will cause more dryness.
