So what is a girl to do to battle the loss of her pouty lips before, during, and especially after menopause?
Let's go back to the basics of good skin care and apply it to your lips. In my blog, getting-religious-about-a-skin-care-routine-is-essentail.html, the basic steps of a good skin care regimen is reviewed. The same steps apply to your lips.
- Cleanse and Exfoliate: Use a good facial wash daily and cleanse your lips. Once a week, be sure to gently exfoliate the cracked,dry peeling skin.
- Moisturize and Protect: During your skin routine you can apply your favorite facial moisturizer over your lips and it will absorb quickly. During the day, apply lip balm with at least SPF 25 every few hours to keep the lips looking supple. My favorite lip balm is featured here essential-product-rodan-fields-lip-shield.html. Use your favorite colored creamy lip gloss or lipstick with a built in moisturizer to keep your lips soft. I personally love shades of pink lip gloss with shimmer and shine when I am getting dressed up and I find very reasonably priced lip gloss choices at Ulta and Walmart.
- Repair: A clinically proven micro dermal roller can be used lightly over your lips 6 nights a week, with the 7th day being for the exfoliation step. The rolling should be followed by applying a lip serum that is loaded with a combination of antioxidants and peptides. Repair serums can be applied at bedtime so that they work their magic as you sleep. A good serum will stay on all night and it works by stimulating collagen in your lips.
As a physician, I personally opt for using a good skin care regimen. I would recommend to YOU to take care of and enhance your natural features, including your lips, with clinically proven skin care products.
There are so many good products, and it can become overwhelming to know which to choose.
I personally decided to become a Rodan + Fields consultant. There are many reasons listed in my blog below.
Basically, our Cosmetic Dermatologist Docs (who by the way created Proactiv) know what a woman experiences and you bet they have created products they use themselves. They have done the research and clinical trials to ensure their line of products work. 31-reasons-i-became-a-rodan-fields-consultant-a-special-shout-out-to-entrepreneurial-minded-skin-loving-australian-friends.html
