Did you know that the mouth is a semi-mucous membrane? Unlike facial skin, your lips therefore lack a protective horny layer, sebaceous and sweat glands. This means that they do not have the protection of a hydrolipidic film. Without hydration and natural nutrition to protect them from external aggressions, they weaken more quickly. They are therefore more sensitive to dehydration and drying out.
The mouth is therefore particularly vulnerable with changes in temperature, humidity, wind, heating, cold and makeup. To avoid chapping and unsightly dead skin, you have to pamper your lips !!
What are the right gestures to adopt or avoid on a daily basis for your lips? We reveal all the Kadalys tips to take care of it gently with an adapted beauty routine: exfoliation, hydration and nutrition.
STEP 1: EXFOLIATE YOUR LIPS WITH A GENTLE SCRUB
It may seem surprising, but to have a smooth mouth you need to exfoliate to remove unsightly dead skin. Once a week apply our Musaclean Kadalys exfoliating peel to your lips. It is a very gentle scrub that respects the thin skin of the mouth, composed of micro-grains of jojoba and yellow banana oil.
Apply the treatment in circular movements to have only the mechanical action (action of the beads). Then rinse them with lukewarm water with your fingers or a cotton ball and finish by dabbing them gently with a towel to remove all traces of moisture.
Enzymatic exfoliation promotes cell renewal thanks to the hypoallergenic fruit acids contained in our Musaclean exfoliating peel. It slows down the reappearance of cracks and dead skin visible during this winter period.
Tip: you can also use a soft toothbrush as a supplement by passing it delicately over your lips with light circular movements over the exfoliating peel. However, remember to disinfect your toothbrush regularly because it very often contains a large amount of bacteria.
STEP 2: PLUMP AND MOISTURIZE YOUR LIPS DURING THE DAY
Once your lips are exfoliated, they need to be hydrated and plumped. Kadalys lip and taste bud balm is a treatment rich in natural vegetable oils and waxes, ideal for moisturizing and nourishing your mouth durably during the day. It can be applied alone or as a base for a lipstick.
Kadalys Balm is formulated with our exclusive and patented active ingredient: “musactif® yellow banana”. Extracted from the skin of the banana, its concentration of phytosterols and native polyphenols of the Yellow Banana gives it extreme repairing and anti-free radical properties: the lips are protected from oxidative stress and aging. Very rich in vitamin E and in Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids, it regenerates, nourishes and brings suppleness to dry mouths.
Also enriched with musk rose oil which is ideal for dehydrated and devitalized mouths for its Omega 3 and 6 content. It is at the same time revitalizing, softening and moisturizing. This oil also has healing and firming properties thanks to its vitamin A content, thus promoting tissue healing. It is ideal for restoring youth to damaged lips.
STEP 3: MOISTURIZE AND NOURISH YOUR LIPS DEEPLY IN THE EVENING OR HOW TO REPAIR DAMAGED, DRIED, CRACKED LIPS
At night, the cells in the mouth regenerate, so take advantage of this to use a moisturizing and nourishing treatment in thick layers on your lips. Apply Kadalys lip balm in the evening before bedtime on previously exfoliated and dry lips. Then leave it on all night to find your mouth softer and calmer. To be repeated several days to accelerate healing if your lips are already damaged or chapped.
Our balm contains vegetable waxes of jojoba, mimosa and sunflower rich in sterols, they will promote the regeneration of the skin while nourishing and intensely hydrating the lips battered by the cold. By creating a protective film that reinforces the hydrolipidic barrier, these waxes are unmatched when it comes to fighting dehydration. Thus, feelings of tightness and discomfort disappear to make room for pleasant comfort. Your mouth is softer when you wake up.
Castor oil, rich in ricinoleic acid, will provide Kadalys balm with triple action: softening, purifying and healing, very effective on chapped and irritated lips. What if she has no equal in helping them quickly regain a sweetness that we thought had been lost. Castor oil also provides excellent pigment dispersion, an ideal boost for lip beauty and lipsticks hold.
THE GESTES TO AVOID FOR THE CARE OF THE LIPS
We all know it, but the first step is not to wet your lips with your tongue. In fact, it dries them up and dehydrates them even faster.
Dry your lips well after cleaning your face or after drinking.
Avoid matte or semi-matte lipsticks which promote drying out. Lipsticks enriched with moisturizing and nourishing agents should be preferred.
If you have damaged lips, avoid matte or overly colored lipsticks which accentuate irregularities and damaged lip problems. Apply Kadalys balm as a base to protect the lips.
