If you are intending on making the most of your summer, you’re probably planning on spending almost every day outside. Whether you prefer spending time catching up on your R&R by the pool or hiking in the hills behind your house, there’s no doubt that your skin and face are going to be exposed to a lot of sun. If you have just gotten lip injections from Dr. Derek Steinbacher, make sure that you are keeping them moisturized and hydrated this season by following the tips listed below. Read on to learn more.
One of the best ways to keep your newly plumped lips protected from the sun is to wear a lip balm with an SPF in it. By acting as an extra layer of protection between your lips and the sun, a lip balm will help you avoid getting a sunburn or anything. When wearing a lip balm with sunscreen, make sure to apply it frequently so that it doesn’t wear off.
If you have dry, chapped lips, this is a large indicator that you are dehydrated. To keep your lips, mouth, and body hydrated, make sure that you are drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water each and every day. As a helpful hint, start your morning by drinking a glass or two of water— this will jumpstart your day and get you on the right track.
To help get rid of that nasty, chapped skin on your lips, use an all-natural lip scrub. By getting rid of the dead skin, you can encourage the growth of newer, healthier skin— leaving you better able to enjoy your newly plumped lips.
Having lip injections during the summer is a great way to feel confident and sexy. However, if they get chapped and burnt, they can be more uncomfortable than anything. To ensure that your lips stay moisturized all summer long, make sure to apply a lip balm with sunscreen, drink plenty of water, and use a scrub on occasion.
