The 10 Best Lip Masks to Add to Your Spring Skin Care Routine
Now that spring is upon us, we can finally bid farewell to winter and its brutal side effects on our skin. After months of being exposed to harsh elements and dry indoor air, chances are your pout could use a little extra TLC right now. That attention can come in the form of lip exfoliation to remove dry, dead surface cells, followed by heaping applications of hydrating lip balms, salves, and emollients. But if you want to pamper your lips even further, you’ll want to reach for a lip mask. Similar to eye masks, face masks, and hair masks, lip masks can target your specific concerns, and act as the perfect accompaniment to daily lip balm applications. Some can even help temporarily plump the look of your lips, dissolve dead cells, and prep your pout for lipstick. Ready to welcome soft and smooth lips this spring and beyond? Pucker up and keep reading for a few of our favorite lip masks.
