Kiss Chapped Skin Good Night with These 5 Lip Masks
Treat your skin to ultra-nourishing ingredients that plump up your pout.
Lip masks are the newest way to pamper your pout. With proper moisture, you can help diminish fine lines and wrinkles in your lips, giving you an overall more youthful look. These concentrated, leave-on treatments pack in nourishing oils, butters, and vitamins for deep conditioning. A few options are clear if you like something colorless, but others have a subtle pink tint to finish off your natural makeup look. You can choose to wear them throughout the day (except for the night-only option) or let them work overnight by dabbing on at bedtime. Just be sure to keep the mask within your lip line as rich formulas can clog pores, says NYC dermatologist Sapna Palep, M.D.
