Kissable Lips

The main ingredient for 98% of lip balms and lip gloss is a derivative or Petroleum, an ingredient designed to prevent moisture loss, NOT re-hydrate. So overtime you gloss or balm to get your lips all soft and kissable, what you are really doing is creating a barrier so absolutely no hydration can get in. Is that really want you want??? It also explains the need to reapply gloss or balm like a jack in the box with a broken spring.

So you walk into the chemist, what do I buy? The mountain of balms on sale or the $80.00 lippy that promises the 'perfect

pout'? I hope you didn't want a cocktail at the end of your hard day at work, cause you just spent it on that lippy that will probably end up in your top draw never to be seen again.

To keep lips hydrated all day, it's simple. I have been trailing a few different products to see what works best on my 'moisture
thirsty' lips. I have found that LaGaia Vitamin C serum to inject potent antioxidants and prime lip. Then apply an little SPF along with some of LaGaia Beauty Balm for sheen. This is the ultimate in keeping my lips hydrated and protected all day
long. I carry around a little tub of the Beauty Balm in my work bag for touch ups. Finally I'm not licking my lips with in an inch of their lives to keep them feeling hydrated.
