What are lip sleeping masks, and why you need them this winter.
“Lip Sleeping Mask enters chat”
So what is a lip sleeping mask?
These sumptuous little pots of gold are specifically formulated to assist in hydrating and plumping the lips during sleep, and if we’re meant to be sleeping 6-8 hours a night; then that's 6-8 hours we’re doing absolutely nothing to our skin. Don’t get me wrong - rest is essential and giving the skin it’s much needed rest is one of the most important steps of any skin care routine; but by adding a simple step during your bedtime routine you will be giving your lips the much-needed care they so rightly deserve.
What kind of lip mask is for me?
Sometimes a lip balm is not enough and no matter how much you apply, your lips will still look dry and chapped.
For instance, there are collagen-infused gel patches that feel like a sheet mask for your pout and all types of clay, gel and cream formulas ready for your kisser. We love a balm lip sleeping mask for an all-night treatment, alternating to a gel mask while in the bath or reading a book in bed. Did we mention you can use them wherever you are? Because of the similar formula to a lip balm it means they are versatile and can be used whether you’re in a zoom meeting, during class, or after the gym.
The ultimate crowd favourite - The LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask is a leave-on lip mask that soothes and moisturises for smoother, more supple lips. This generous treatment is made with Moisture Wrap™ technology, which forms a moisturising protective film to lock in moisture and active ingredients, and their unique Berry Mix Complex™ technology, which is rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C to protect your lips and gently exfoliate dry flakes. A generous layer of this soothing mask at bedtime helps reduce flakiness so you can wake up to lips that feel refreshed, supple, and soft to the touch.
They also have a delicious range of flavours:
The KLAVUU Nourishing Care Lip Sleeping Pack is an overnight treatment for dry, flaky and chapped lips. Infused with Phyto Oil Complex and oils from avocado, sweet almond and apricot, this non-sticky lip treatment prevent lips from drying out while smoothing out dead skin cells. It also has a balm-like texture and a subtle vanilla flavour.
