When to use a lip serum?

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

Why use a lip serum?

Given that the lips are covered with skin five times thinner than the rest of the face and lack sebaceous glands, they 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 aging. This leads to a gradual loss of volume and color, as well as an increase in wrinkles and fine lines.

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

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

When should you use a lip serum? And how often should it be applied?

The lip serum is a treatment to be used daily for soft, protected lips against harsh conditions. 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 under 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 maximized 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 fingertip before spreading 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.

Given that the lip serum is typically colorless, you can then layer it with a tinted balm, a tinted oil , or lipstick. It's important to note that the serum should be applied to a face that has been previously cleansed. Moreover, performing a scrub once a week aids in lip hydration and allows the serum's active ingredients to penetrate more effectively.
