Kiss dry lips goodbye with these top picks.
No matter what time of year it is, no one likes to deal with cracked and chapped lips. While lip balms can come to the rescue and help alleviate any day-to-day dryness or flakes, a good lip mask with nutrient-rich ingredients works in overdrive to help condition and treat your pout in the long run. It might feel like an unnecessary step in your beauty routine, but according to Dr. Michele Green, an NYC-based board-certified cosmetic dermatologist, a lip mask is the secret to a smooth and youthful-looking pucker year round.
“Using a lip mask is a great way to provide essential hydration and lead to plump, smooth, luscious lips,” she tells Town & Country. “It will help to nourish and protect the lips, and is gentle enough that it can easily be integrated into your daily beauty routine, keeping the lips healthy and soft.” The expert also notes that lips are often one of the first areas of the face to have age-related volume loss, and a lip mask can combat that common effect of aging.
When picking out the best lip mask, Dr. Green recommends looking for products that contain hyaluronic acid as this powerhouse skincare ingredient is known for its ability to provide and maintain moisture. She also advises reaching for a formula with vitamin E because it “strengthens the skin, protecting it from free radical UV damage and premature aging.” Other ingredients to look out for are also beeswax, shea butter, and honey.
Below, find the best lip masks—that offer hydrating, smoothing, and anti-aging benefits—to try now.
