When to use a lip serum?

Exposed to various aggressors (sun, wind, heat, cold, pollution, cigarette smoke...), the lips become dry and fine lines appear, both on their surface and around the mouth area. Acting as a protector and moisturiser, the lip serum is a treatment to incorporate into your beauty routine. Find our recommendations regarding its timing and frequency of application.

Why use a lip serum?

The lips, being covered with skin five times thinner than the rest of the face and lacking sebaceous glands, are often prone tochapping, dryness and various types of irritation. Furthermore, the lips are one of the first areas to be affected by signs of skin ageing. This leads to a gradual loss of volume and colour, as well as an increase in wrinkles and fine lines.

Several intrinsic factors explain this, including the drastic reduction in collagen levels or the blood vessels in the vermillion of the lips (the border between your lips and the surrounding skin) which weakens their colour. Furthermore, certain external factors such as weather conditions, UV exposure, smoking... also play a role in the loss of volume, wrinkled appearance and weakening of lip colour. Among these, damage caused by UV is considered the most destructive.

A lip serum can offer various benefits depending on its composition, ranging from hydration to protection, and even volume enhancement for a plump mouth. It is generally an aqueous or emulsified gel that helps to maintain the hydration level of cells and naturally plump the lips, without the need for injections.

When should one use a lip serum? What should be the frequency of application?

The lip serum is a treatment to be used daily to maintain soft lips and protect them from damage. Its light and fluid texture makes it a rinse-free treatment. By choosing a formula based on natural ingredients, it is possible to use the serum repeatedly, whenever you feel the need. Indeed, dryness is generally felt due to the effects of cold, sun, wind, tobacco, etc...

The duration of use is not time-limited and can be spread over several weeks. It is also possible to limit oneself to an application of twice a day, morning and evening. It is known that cell activity is maximised during the night, which gives the active ingredients time to work.

How to use a lip serum?

Depending on the formula used, the lip serum can have a consistency that is either rather liquid or creamy. In the former case, it is often packaged in a bottle equipped with a dropper. To apply it, pour a few drops onto the tip of your finger before spreading it on the lips. Pat it in to allow all the active ingredients to penetrate and smooth around the lip contour. In the latter case, the serum is sold with a brush for spreading it.

Given that the lip serum is typically of a neutral colour, you can then layer it with a tinted balm, a tinted oil or a lipstick. It should be noted that the application of the serum is done on a face that has been previously cleansed. Moreover, performing a scrub once a week contributes to the hydration of the lips and allows the active ingredients of the serum to penetrate better.
