Rodan + Fields Essentials Lip Shield SPF 25

It’s Lipstick Day today! And in honor of this holiday, this blog post is all about how to care for your lips and keep them in their best healthy, hydrated condition. This ensures that your lips will be perfectly prepped and ready for the beautiful, bold lipstick hues you’ll wear to dress them up in celebration for the big day. After all, healthy, moisturized lips look youthful! From the perfect neutral nude to a ravishing red to the prettiest pink, no matter your favorite shade, it’ll look its best on moisturized lips. Matte, sheer, creamy, glossy, you name it: any lipstick finish will look even better when applied to healthy, hydrated lips, as well. Whether your lip care goal is hot weather lip protection, chapped lips during the summer, to heal dry lips, dry lip treatment or SPF for lips, Rodan + Fields has the perfect formula for you. Here, your summer lip care guide. Your best lipstick shade adds a little something extra to any ensemble.  

Did you know that lips deserve their own morning and evening lip care routine? Just as you take care of your skin with your customized skincare Regimen, it’s all about a lip care regimen to keep your lips soft, smooth and healthy. The last step in your routine, you want to apply your lip care either before you put on your lipstick, tinted balm or gloss during the day (or just wear it solo on a no makeup day) or right before you go to bed at night.  

Your Daytime Lip Care Regimen 

Just like our skin, lips also show visible signs of aging. Fine lines and wrinkles make a cameo there, just like on the rest of our faces. That’s why a lip care regimen infused with SPF, like ESSENTIALS Lip Shield SPF 25 is essential for the daytime. Lips that aren’t kept moisturized are also susceptible to chapping and overall dryness, which can be uncomfortable. Protecting and moisturizing your lips throughout the day is important when it comes to prevention from visible signs of aging.  

ESSENTIALS Lip Shield SPF 25 incorporates Peptides and Dimethicone, along with sunscreen to defend your lips against the aging effects of the sun while softening and visibly smoothing lip texture. Formulated with a beautiful blend of Peptides and natural oils, this lip balm leaves you with supple, healthy-looking lips.Broad Spectrum SPF 25 helps to protect lips from the sun’s harmful UV rays. SPF for lips isn’t something you only need for the beach! Keeping your lips protected from the sun is something that should be part of your daily routine.  

TIP: Keep one in your makeup bag and one in your purse to ensure lip protection any time, anywhere.  

Your Nighttime Lip Care Regimen  

At night, treat your lips to a decadent serum designed to help restore them to a youthful looking pout. Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum is essential to your anti-aging routine. Lips are exposed to the sun and environmental elements throughout the day, so you want to ensure that they’re protected and moisturized. Rich in antioxidants, each gel-filled capsule of REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum visibly smooths lips and reduces the appearance of wrinkles while helping retain natural moisture. It even boasts a refreshing, cooling, tingling sensation. When you use the Lip Renewing Serum capsules consistently, they help your lip retain moisture, visibly smooth lip texture and reduce the appearance of lip wrinkles for visibly younger-looking lips. Best of all, these biodegradable capsules are made of plant-based gelatin coated in beeswax.  

Tip: Keep your Rodan + Fields REDEFINE Lip Renewing Serum on your nightstand and apply it before getting in bed every night as the last step in your evening routine. If you’d rather not take up the nightstand real estate, another option is to keep your lip serum by your toothbrush so that you remember to apply it after brushing your teeth at night.  

If you find your lips are flaky and could use a bit of exfoliation (just as your skincare routine includes an exfoliation step), you can create your own lip scrub by mixing a little brown sugar with coconut oil. Apply your DIY mask to your lips and then scrub it off with a wet washcloth. Pat your lips dry with a clean towel, then follow that up with an application of Lip Renewing Serum. Do this lip exfoliation trick before bed 2-3 times per month for best results.  

Something to smile about? Healthy, hydrated lips thanks to a consistent morning and evening lip care regimen.
