Tips for Chapped Lips

January 5, 2017 at 9:33 pm (Skin Care)

As we’re in the middle of winter, skin can get dry and out of sorts- especially the lips. We’ve asked our estheticians and holistic gurus how best to deal with dry, chapped lips.

  1. Make sure you’re hydrated from the inside out. (i.e. Drink water. )
  2. Certain newly recreational activities will most likely increase dryness;  advice? enjoy responsibly and make sure to drink plenty of water, also get a lip treatment. Your lips will thank you 😉
  3. DIY a sugar & honey lip exfoliation, followed by a nourishing lip mask.
    1. DIY Sugar & Honey lip exfoliation: mix 1 tsp sugar, 1 tsp honey. Work in an upward circular motion on and around the lips. Rinse with cool water and pat dry.
    2. Lip Mask (We recommend: Lira’s Lip Factor available in our spa) However, if DIY is your only option- this make a great mask:  1 tsp PLAIN yogurt, 1 tsp oil (try: Argan, Almond, or EVOO), a dash of honey. Mix and let sit on lips for 5 min. Rinse & pat dry. Follow with lip balm for the softest lips you’ve ever had.
  4. Lip Treatment Add-on. Don’t have the time to whip up your exfoliation & mask? We have a Lip Treatment for you! Complimentary for Members as your free add-on, $15.  Pairs best with facial or microdermabrasion. Treatment includes:

Exfoliate, hydrate, and heal. Gently exfoliates the lips while the honey and oils repair and hydrate. The Lira Lip Factor is a hydrating citrus lip mask that restores moisture for softer fuller lips. Contains: Vitamin C, Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil, and Vitamin E.

Make sure those lips are kissably soft all year long.

Winter is coming!

dos-donts-1

It’s time to adjust your skincare regimen with potent, hydrating and exfoliating ingredients.
Typically in certain climates skin becomes drier, lacks moisture including those who’s skin maybe on the oily side. We all need to transition into a winter/fall routine. Let’s start with these simple do’s and dont’s.

DONT’S

Limit harsh soaps, sanitizers, and products with heavy fragrant synthetic scents, which tend to leave the skin drier and can be very irritating to sensitive and rosacea skin types.

Take fewer showers, with less heat, as to maintain hydration for smooth soft skin.

DO’S

Instead gently exfoliate the face and body once a week with non-clogging oil based scrubs.

Use a cream instead of lotion, such as night cremes, and body butters which will provide a better moisture barrier.

Incorporate serum’s and masks that are healing,hydrating, and exfoliating, such as peels,aloe or honey based masks, serums such as Plant stem Cells, vitamin C & vitamin E which are not only hydrating, but will have powerful antioxidant properties.

Here’s what our esthetician, Tuesday Cohen, recommends

Facial Add On’s!

eye-treatment

Includes a gentle exfoliation around the eye area to prevent a buildup of dead skin (which results in fine lines and milia), a youth preserving mask, and a hydrating, anti-aging eye cream for protection. $15

lip

Just like it sounds. An exfoliating & hydrating treatment, great for chapped winter lips. $15

hand

A delightful exfoliation of either the hands or feet, followed by a butter wrap. $30/each | $55 for both
