The 14 Best Lip Masks to Add to Your Winter Skin Care Routine
With cold weather now in full swing, you may notice your lips starting to suffer the consequences of winter. Between 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 winter and beyond? Pucker up and keep reading for a few of our favorite lip masks.
