Pucker up, Buttercup!
When you look in the mirror, what do you think is the most important facial feature? Some might say the eyes, some might say the nose, and while we agree that both are important, we think that it’s the lips that really bring your face to life. Which is why alongside your skincare routine, you need to pay attention to your lips! Just applying chap stick once in a while and calling it a day won’t do, you need a proper lip care routine!
Lucky for you, we’re sharing with you a few steps to achieve those naturally plump and healthy lips you’ve been dreaming of!
1. Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate
On any part of your body, dead skin cells are your enemy. They cause your skin to feel rough, dry, and sometimes itchy. Your lips are no exception! That’s why exfoliation is a must when establishing your routine.
We recommend using our Raw byRoque Lip Scrubs. We’ve got “Juicy” which smells like a mango shake and “Cool Joe” which smells like peppermint. Our Lip Scrub is made with Cane Sugar and Organic Brown Sugar, alongside other nourishing ingredients such as Shea Butter and Cocoa Butter. The fine sugar granules create a semi-rough texture which easily lifts the dead skin from your lips, leaving it soft and hydrated. Simply apply the scrub all over your lips, including the inner corners, and gently massage in circular motions. When you’re done, rinse off with water, and you’re ready for the next step!
2. Always! Moisturize!
Dry, chapped lips are usually caused by dehydration, which could be from not drinking enough water, or simply the cold weather. Either way, you need to moisturize those lips!
We love using our Lip Oil, which is made from the infusion of several types of organic oils such as Olive Oil, Castor Oil and Grape Seed Oil. This Lip Oil is rich in Vitamin E, which promotes cell regeneration – shedding dead skin and bringing new cells to the surface faster. With this incredibly nourishing Lip Oil, your lips would look (literally) brand new!
3. Don’t forget to Condition!
Conditioning is not just for your hair. After the first and second steps, you need to lock in all that moisture and nutrients, and give your lips a satin finish. The best product for that is, of course, our Tinted Lip Butter! The luxurious butters work to rejuvenate your lips and smooth any leftover roughness. The slight tint will bring out the color of your lips, making it look naturally rosy.
This routine is one that we personally follow, and we have found that it works like magic, both to heal and maintain. By the end of it, your lips would be plump, juicy, and look downright delectable. If you have a partner, prepare to pucker up!
