OUR GUIDE TO LIP TREATMENTS
THE IMPORTANCE OF MOISTURIZING LIPS
Without proper hydration, lips can become dry and chapped. Lips have a very thin outer layer and low barrier function, so they are more susceptible to becoming dry and rough. A lip balm is an effective and essential step in helping to treat and prevent dry, chapped lips.
WHAT IS LIP BALM?
Lip balm is a formula that can help smooth, soften, and moisturize lips. Using a lip balm throughout the day can help replenish moisture and may even help prevent lips from becoming dry. Our all-day, everyday lip treatments can help smooth and soften lips on the go.
WHAT IS A LIP MASK?
A lip mask is an intensive treatment that helps replenish and moisturize dry lips. Many lip masks can be used overnight as a hydrating treatment while you sleep. Some lip masks can also be applied as a moisturizing treatment before makeup.
At Kiehl’s, our lip care and balms are formulated to help treat and prevent dry, chapped lips. Whether you are looking to soothe, protect, hydrate, or add shine and a pop of color, we have the right lip care for you.
