When should you use a lip balm?

When should you use a lip balm?

Delicate in nature, the lips are overly exposed to external aggressions such as low temperatures. The solution to help them withstand the elements and prevent them from drying out is to apply a lip balm. How often should this treatment be used to avoid having dry lips? Should it be applied in the evening or in the morning?

Why use a lip balm?

Regular lip hydration is essential. Indeed, this delicate area produces neither sebum nor melanin for protection. However, it undergoes various forms of aggression such as:

  • UV rays;

  • Temperature fluctuations;

  • The rain;

  • Air conditioning;

  • The acidity of saliva;

  • Acidic foods (such as lemon or tomato for instance);

  • Alcohol...

The lip's skin barrier is sensitive, and the effects of dryness appear quickly: chapping, flaking, bleeding... To keep this part of the face healthy, the application of a moisturising treatment such as a lip balm is necessary. In addition to reducing the sensation of dryness, this treatment is renowned for its nourishing, softening and repairing actions. It is available in a neutral or tinted version, thus combining the functions of a treatment and makeup.

How often should a lip balm be used?

The recommended frequency depends on your needs. If you are using a lip balm preventively, apply it three times a day to keep your lips soft and hydrated. You can apply it:

  • In the morning, after you have brushed your teeth. Indeed, toothpaste can potentially dry out the skin of the lips.

  • After lunch.

  • In the evening before bedtime.

For this final step, it is recommended to apply a generous layer of lip balm, as cellular regeneration occurs at night. If you increase the amount of care, the skin will benefit more from its advantages, and you will wake up with nourished, soft, and supple lips.

Furthermore, if you are accustomed to wearing makeup daily, apply your balm before the lipstick, as the latter can cause skin dryness. By allowing it to work for a few minutes, you enable the moisturising agents to perform their function.

Finally, on damaged lips, it is appropriate to apply a new layer of balm as soon as they feel tight or start to dry out.

Why choose the 9-ingredient lip balm from Typology?

Our 9-ingredient lip balm stands out due to its minimalist formula, composed of 99.8% natural ingredients. As it does not contain any allergenic agents (such as fragrance, essential oils, etc.), it is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive ones.

This treatment contains, among other things, moisturising, protective and restorative active ingredients such as:

  • Shea butter that nourishes the skin of the lips. It also forms a protective barrier that prevents dehydration by stopping the evaporation of water.

  • The sunflower seed oil that provides softness. It also protects against the harmful effects of free radicals due to its richness in antioxidants.

  • Castor oil, known for its emollient properties. It softens the lips, in addition to enriching the texture of the balm.

  • Vegetable polyglycerides. These active ingredients derived from flax and castor help to keep the lips supple and hydrated.
