Adding Lip Care To Your Skincare Routine

Mar 18th 2019

Lips have much fewer cellular levels (3-5 layers) than that of the face (up to 16 layers). Meaning, lips are much thinner skin, yet they take the most abuse. Think how active your lips are all day long with eating, kissing, smacking, talking, perhaps even being chewed on! Protecting and caring for lips should be a priority yet we so often lump our lips in with the rest of our  face when considering a skincare routine.

Annika maya Cosmetics gives lips the service they deserve with the perfect products to create a lip care routine simple enough to slip into your current skincare routine.

Sugar Lip Scrub
Start your morning lip routine with Annika Maya Sugar Lip Scrub to exfoliate, moisturize and prep your lips. Safflower Seed oil helps seal in moisture due to its high fatty acid content. Shea butter, rich in Vitamins A & E as well as Essential Fatty Acids, soothes and protect lips from water loss. Rice Bran, Sunflower and Rosemary Leaf Extracts (all rich in antioxidants) help protect from environmental irritants.

Directions: Apply liberally to lips and massage gently in circular motions to effectively polish and smoothe the lips. Rinse well with warm water. Enjoy the vanilla/mint aromatherapy.

Soothing Lip Balm

Once exfoliated, treat your pucker to Annika Maya Smoothing Lip Balm. The luscious Vanilla scent will have you sold before it even reaches your lips! Formulated to boost Hyaluronic Acid production from within the skin to plump, smooth and firm lips gentle skin. Jojoba Seed Oil, high in fatty acids and closely resembling the skin's own natural oil, conditions and softens.

Directions: Apply liberally to lips after morning exfoliation, at bedtime and throughout the day as needed. (Can also be worn over your favorite lip color.)

Vitamin C Lip Treatment

For intensive healing and extra protection, apply Annika Maya Vitamin C Lip Treatment. Vitamins C & E work together to limit free radical damage and repair existing damage by supporting the formation of healthy collagen proteins. Helps to brighten skin while diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Jojoba & Avocado oils provide nourishing moisture to soothe and smoothe the skin.

Directions: Apply to center of lips and blend outwards. Can be worn in coordination with Soothing Lip Balm.
