Lip Balm: For Simply Beautiful Kisses!

Lips are really quite special. We use them to talk, eat, kiss and smile. They are a symbol of beauty and sensuality. That’s why lip care is so important.

Particularly delicate skin

Our lips need plenty of care, as the skin on them is extremely sensitive. Along with our fingertips, our lips have the most sensory cells and are therefore our most sensitive connection to the outside world. That’s why kissing is so enjoyable!

Your lips are sensitive

The skin on our lips is so soft and thin that the blood vessels can be seen through it. That’s what gives our lips their red colour. Our lips don’t have any sebum or sweat glands, which are responsible for supplying our skin with oil and moisture. And the corneal layer, which protects our skin from harmful environmental influences, is very thin on our lips, as well. Our lips are therefore dependent on care and protection from the outside. This is why you should use lip balm, such as Labello Hydro Care, once in a while.

Your lips need protection!

It’s not just a question of beauty: dry and chapped lips cause pain. A great remedy is Labello SOS Lip Repair, for example.

4 reasons for chapped, cracked and dry lips

  • Cold: the most common cause of dry lips is the rapid change between hot and cold. That’s why we have chapped lips especially in winter.
  • Incorrect care: only in very rare cases are the ingredients of conventional moisturisers suitable for the soft and sensitive skin on our lips.
  • UV-radiation: as lips have almost no pigments, they need to be well protected from exposure to sunlight.
  • Stress: long days at work, along with mental stress, have a negative effect on the condition of our skin. And our lips are no exception.

Indulgent moments for your lips

Here’s how to nurture your way to beautiful lips

Your lips cannot produce any moisture for themselves. That’s why they need plenty of care. Apply lip balm or a lip care stick to your lips every day. Be careful: the oil content should be very high, and it mustn’t contain too much water. That’s because if the water evaporates from the lips, they’ll dry out even more. Lip Butter Original from NIVEA with shea butter and natural almond oil nourishes your lips. It melts as soon as it touches your lips and leaves behind a soft, smooth feeling.

5 tips for velvety-soft lips

  • Remove excess skin cells: massage your lips twice a week with a soft toothbrush and lukewarm water.
  • Do not chew on your lips. This dries out the sensitive skin.
  • Don’t forget to care for your lips: lip balm protects and soothes your lips, leaving them with a nice shine.
  • Kiss! It promotes the circulation in the lips.
  • Avoid food that is too salty. Crisps and snack foods in particular unnecessarily dry out the lips.

Seductive lips

Colour for your lips

Got a date or a night with the girls? Lipstick is sure to catch the eye! To ensure your lips not only look great, but also make it through the evening feeling nourished, it’s important to bear in mind a few things: always moisturise your lips with lip balm before applying lipstick, to prevent them from drying out. Once home again, it’s essential to remove your lipstick. Long-lasting lipsticks in particular can only be tackled with a very oily cleansing lotion or cream – apply generously and then remove the lipstick with a cotton pad. To ensure you wake up with delicately soft lips the next morning, never forget to moisturise your lips before going to sleep.

Tip: lips look especially soft if you apply a semi-transparent lipstick thinly.

Lip balm – for nourished, soft lips

A stubborn myth: lip balm is addictive!

The rumour has been around for a long time that once you start caring for your lips, soon you won’t be able to stop. People believe that instead of protecting your lips from drying out, such products only make things worse. Wrong! In reality, it’s more of a familiarisation effect: if you use lip balm regularly, you’ll get used to the soft feeling that it leaves on your lips. Without the fatty layer and the protection, your lips will feel dry and tight. That’s not necessarily the case, but nevertheless you'll want to use lip balm again.
