Or, you can choose this simple solution: Apply a lip balm as a precautionary measure in your skin care routine. This way you will get a layer of protection from your retinoids and other skin care products to buffer this sensitive area which can cause irritation.
We have to go, of course, to the MBG Leap Left. This product contains humicant, emollient and exclusive, which means it will help to draw moisture in the lips, soften the skin and lock in hydration. Exclusives are especially important for protecting the lips from retinoid irritation, acting as a barrier between the two.
We should also keep in mind that mbg’s lip balm formula does not contain any exfoliating or invasive plumping agents; It only folds into mild, nutritious active ingredients that are just for moisture. Why is it important? You see, many lip balms contain ingredients like salicylic acid or peppermint oil to remove flakes or increase volume – all of which are fine and good, but not when you’re hoping to protect your lips from any potentially irritating activation.
Not to mention, MBG Lip Balm will help soften the delicate skin of your lips over time, making it a worthwhile step in your skin care routine. Think about it – you can set aside a separate step for the eye cream because that area is particularly sensitive, so why not show the same love on your lips?
