Do you currently offer treatments that cater to your clients’ lips?
Lips are an extra-sensitive area of the face. They produce less oil and absolutely no melanin, the substance that protects skin from the harmful rays of the sun. Even when your clients swear by using sunscreen on their face, you should recommend extra products that cater to their vulnerable lips.
Lips are also thinner than the rest of the skin on the face. They can easily get cracked or flaky from dryness due to lack of care.
A good moisturizer can help lips stay hydrated. Which matters a lot, because hydrated lips make lipstick look phenomenal!
Common Questions About Lip Care
Here are answers to some common questions your clients may have about lip care.
What time of year should I pay extra attention to my lips?
All year round! Summer sunshine can certainly dry out the lips and cause damage, but freezing winter temperatures can also lead to cracked and chapped lips.
Keep a lip moisturizer handy morning, noon, and night, every day of the year.
Should I exfoliate my lips?
Yes! Removing dead skin cells can help to prevent infection. Just remember to moisturize your lips after exfoliating them.
Your lips are more sensitive than the rest of your face, so use a gentler exfoliant.
How do I care for cold sores?
Visit a medical professional for balms and products to treat cold sores. If you have an infection and want to wear lipstick, use a cotton swab or pad to apply lipstick. Using lipstick with an infection can cause subsequent sores and infections.
