We’ve talked a lot about Korean skincare and why it’s so popular in the West, but something we’ve not yet discussed is Korean lip care. Taking care of our lips should be an essential part of our skincare routine, but so many of us are guilty of overlooking this step.
When we forget to treat our lips, we end up with sore, dry and chapped lips that make applying lipstick a nearly impossible task. You may also find your lips are sensitive to the cold or you may struggle with habitual licking. If you want to ensure your lips stay hydrated, soft and kissable, Korean lip care could be for you.
So many people wonder how Koreans maintain soft, pink and luscious lips, and the answer lies in the products and the routine
As we know, Korean skincare is all about building that routine that gently exfoliates, nourishes and hydrates the skin, and lip care is the same.
A great tip to always bear in mind is when performing your exfoliation step, to always include the lips and gently move over them in a circular motion to remove dead skin.
The next step is hydration and this can be found in many Korean lip sleeping masks. LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Berry can be easily applied before bed so you can wake up with soft, plump and deeply hydrated lips in the morning. With its moisture wrap technology, this Korean beauty cult favourite even helps to take care of damaged and cracked lips in the process.
For those lips that get cracked in the winter and never seem to heal, it’s wise to invest in Dr Jart Ceramidin Lipair. This highly moisturising lip treatment balm is the perfect cure for dry, chapped lips and can be used daily to repair and hydrate your lips.
Lastly, if you were looking to achieve a natural Korean lip look, then ETUDE HOUSE Fixing Tint comes in 11 colours for you to choose from. This lightweight lip tint is easily spread on the lips and is packed full of ingredients that help to maintain hydration throughout the day, all the while offering a gorgeous natural long-lasting colour.
So, whatever you’re looking to gain from Korean skin care, you can find all in one place with Skin Cupid.
