If you’re like me, you love having soft, full-looking, hydrated lips that make them feel and look healthy! Your lips do need some extra self care to keep them pink, plump and smooth.

I have some tips for keeping your lips healthy everyday with clean, better-for-you products that will enhance your lips and give them the sparkle and glow they deserve with minimal self care.

 1. Keeping your Lips Healthy with Hydration

Firstly, did you know that your lips don’t have oil glands? Your lips get chapped because they don’t have oil glands. We tend to overlook moisturizing our lips daily to prevent cracking and drying. (The rest of our skin has oil glands and that’s how it stays hydrated.)

It is not news that we are constantly reminded to drink plenty of water every day. In women, about 55% of our bodies are made up of water. Your body loses water all throughout each day, so you need constant replenishment of water to maintain healthy skin which includes your lips!

60% of what you put on your skin is absorbed into your bloodstream. That’s a scary percentage so you need to ensure you use chemical-free and safe products on your skin.

Willing Beauty’s ‘XO Lip Oils’ are a transparent blend of gel-oils hybrids that leave your lips balmy-soft and luminous.  The XO Lip Oils add shine with a glowing finish.  They stay put and moisturize your lips with a sheer coverage.

XO Lips Oils are available in four (4) refreshing scents that are not synthetic fragrances:

  • Coconut
  • Vanilla Bean
  • Sugar Plum
  • Strawberries + Cream

For all day hydration, use Willing Beauty XO Lip Oils to nourish and protect your lips with a product that is clean and effective.

Willing Beauty’s XO Lip Oils have key ingredients that have many amazing benefits:

  • Argan Oil – is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, it restores your skins barrier and it has a preventative anti-aging effect.
  • Marula Oil – is an antioxidant that improves skin elasticity and deeply hydrates your lips.
  • Avocado Oil – is loaded with antioxidants like Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E and beta carotene. Avocado Oil helps to moisturize and smooth your lips, thus boosting collagen production.
  • Tri-Isostearyl Citrate – is a natural ingredient found in citrus fruits and is used as an emollient and for lip conditioning.
  • Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride – helps to smooth skin and works as an antioxidant. It is valued as more natural versus synthetic in topical skincare products. It is extracted from the kernel of a matured coconut.
  • 12-Hydroxystearic Acid – is a fatty acid-based ingredient produced by hydrogenating castor oil which is derived from castor beans, it improves the feel and workability of skincare products.

In today’s environment, it is crucial to use products that are effective and skin friendly. A small swipe of a lip oil that is safe can be so beneficial for your selfcare.

Bonus Tip

  • We tend to lick our lips often especially if we love the flavor on them. We should avoid licking our lips as often as possible as the saliva on them evaporates quickly and dries them out faster.

3. Keeping your Lips Healthy with our Clean Standards

4. Keeping your Lips Healthy with a Healing Treatment

As mentioned above, your lips are prone to being chapped as they don’t have oil glands to naturally moisturize them. Ironically, they can absorb moisture, but they need a treatment to lock that all in.

Your lips are affected by all the environmental conditions that dry them out such as the sun, dry air, saliva and toothpaste. Truth be told, Chapstick doesn’t help, it just creates a barrier that prevents your lips from absorbing moisture.

Willing Beauty has a product called ‘Lip Lock Healing Lip Treatment’ with a Coconut Rose Scent.  It is formulated with nineteen (19) natural butters, oils, waxes and extracts as well as an effective moisturizing and protective skincare ingredient.

These ingredients include:

  • Hyaluronic Acid – is nature’s moisture magnet which draws in moisture and has a subtle lip-plumping effect.
  • Vitamin E – protects your lips from oxidative stress and premature aging.
  • Squalane – is a naturally occurring lipid that hydrates your skin and helps to lock in moisture on your lips.
  • Ceramide NP – helps to restore your skin’s moisture barrier by holding the cells together for smoother, moisturized lips.
  • Castor Seed Oil – is high in ricinoleic acid which is a fatty acid high in Omega-9. Castor Seed Oil helps retain moisture in your skin by preventing water loss.
  • Shea Butter – is a natural emollient that softens, smooths and hydrates your lips.  It also helps with peeling and cracked lips.
  • Candelilla Wax – is a vegan wax that conditions and nourishes your dry, parched lips. It also provides a light gloss or shine.

Lip Lock Healing Treatment is a high quality product that is packed with skin care benefits that are super comforting and are a wonderful, healing salve for your lips. It is designed to be applied with your finger so that you can massage Lip Lock deep into your lips.

Bonus Tip

  • Use Lip Lock Healing Treatment at night so that it works all night long to repair and restore your lips to keep them smooth and healthy. Of course, you can use it anytime day or night!

5.  Keeping your Lips Healthy with Collagen

Another of Think Goodness’ Pillar Brands is CMYK Cosmetics which features ‘No Limits Collagen Lip Gloss’ that has the perfect amount of sheen and color. You will love this 100% clean formula that has a creamy consistency and is safe for your lips. Best of all, it is goop-free and not sticky like many lip glosses. CMYK Cosmetics Lip Gloss is available in two versatile shades:

  • Wear a layer of Gleam and a layer of Beam together for a totally different shade.

Try these luscious shades to up your Lip Gloss game. You won’t be disappointed to use a product that is a vegan formula and dermatologist and allergy tested. Our CMYK Cosmetics brand avoids the same 1,300+ ingredients banned by the EU (same as our Willing Beauty brand).
