If you are like most women – you think about the quality of the skin of your face. Perhaps trying different solutions for day and night, incorporating a mask or exfoliant from time to time, and maybe using an eye cream to soothe that delicate area…but what about your lips? They get relegated to treatment with a balm or chapped lip product, sometimes bought hastily at the checkout lane in the hopes of eliminating that dry, flaky feeling we seem to be visited by every year. The reality is that lips need skin care – not just a quick fix – and the skin around the lips is a vulnerable area that can be one of the early signals of aging. Changes in the season, especially as we enter the winter months, are a signal to up the ante on your lip care. The Founders of VENeffect understand how and why the skin of the lips needs special care and have a great solution to transform the skin on and around the lips that you will LOVE!
Read on to find out how to have fuller, rosier and younger looking lips!
The skin of the lip is a very different texture to the skin of the face, eyes, neck and décolleté. No – it is not a plot for clever marketing people to get you to buy another product.
Think about it: the lips go through more changes throughout the day than any other part of the face – smiling, eating, applying and reapplying rich pigment colors or glosses, or even simply talking. It all takes a toll on the skin on and around the lips. Adding to that workload is the dynamic ebb and flow of the “look-good-feel-good” hormone estrogen. Yes, estrogen – embrace it – it is a beautifying hormone meant to enhance virtually everything about us that is beautiful, from the shine in our hair, to the curve of our waist, the glow in our skin and the plump, rosy, moist allure of the LIPS!
As estrogen wanes within the month and as we age (hint – estrogen peaks with fertility at age 25-27), we lose volume, color and moisture in the skin of the lips. To add insult to injury, all of those wonderful smiles and great conversations tax those lips, reducing elasticity and eventually resulting in tiny vertical lines…sometimes not so tiny over time… but there is something you can do about that.
We want to let you know about our VENeffect Anti-Aging Lip Treatment. This delicate, yet powerful lip treatment is a must-have for your lips in any season. It not only visibly reduces the appearance of lines, it also deeply hydrates, protects, and plumps your lips using our advanced phytoestrogen technology. You simply apply this creamy treatment on and around the skin of the lips morning and evening – when you are going through your normal skin care regimen. It sinks into the skin immediately and provides all-day moisture as well as a natural plumpness and rosiness to the lips. And even better, VENeffect reduces the appearance of the vertical lines that form around the lips as well as helps to prevent them from forming. It is truly unique and award winning – there is nothing quite like it.
Now that you have the inside scoop on how to achieve moist, younger looking, plump and healthy lips, you can have fun with your lip color - it will go on beautifully and stay exactly where you want it!
Three Steps for the Perfect Red Lip This Season:
A great red lip will never go out of style. For some, it is a signature look and for others, a way to spice things up for a style change or special occasion. The holiday season is a great time to try out a new, bold lip color to spice things. As the temps get colder it is crucial to treat your lips to keep them soft and smooth. Invest in a creamy lip treatment - not just a balm or stick - to truly change the quality of the skin of the lip and your new color will glide on and stay put!
- Hydrate your lips with VENeffect Anti-Aging Lip Treatment. Smooth onto and around the lip area to provide the perfect prep for the intense dose of color to follow. This step will make your lipstick last longer, protect the lips and keep the color from bleeding!
- Apply a lip liner around the natural contour of your lips, then fill in your lips as well so as not to create too distinct of a line. The liner not only helps to “contain” the lipstick, but also provides a clean and finished look. Choose either a nude lip liner or one close to the shade of your lipstick.
- Apply your favorite shade of red lipstick. A lip brush is very helpful here to have more control when you apply lip color. Gloss is optional – depending on if you want a matte or more shiny finish. Voila!
