What Are The Best Korean lip balms & lip sleeping masks?
It is very easy to get confused if you look at the balms and sleeping masks wondering how to use them. Here is your insight to Korean lip care.
Lip balms often contain moisturising ingredients such as beeswax that plump your lips and maintain their youthful, supple look. Most lip balms also have calming ingredients like camphor and menthol in order to soothe and repair irritated lips. Other lip balms contain anti-ageing formula ingredients like hyaluronic acid and collagen or natural forms of antioxidants.
Regardless of whichever K-beauty lip balm you choose, you can rest assured that all of them will leave your lips feeling softer, smoother, and more hydrated.
When it comes to lip sleeping masks and balms, they were designed to be used in your evening skincare routine. Lip sleeping balms are often made with a high dosage of natural ingredients, meaning that, unlike some other balms, lip sleeping balms and mask will help to heal faster chapped lips. Lip sleeping masks can be used as a daily treatment if your lips require some extra dose of attention and nourishment.

How Often Should You Use Lip Balms & Lip Sleeping Masks?
Both lip balms and lip sleeping masks can be used daily as required. Typically, lip balms are applied multiple times a day.
As a rule of thumb, you can apply lip balm whenever the previous layer doesn’t feel like it’s there anymore. This will ensure that you are always wearing a protective layer over your lips that prevents moisture from escaping your skin and keeps them healthy.
Lip Sleeping masks and packs, on the other hand, are the best performing skincare products and are also a perfect night treatment. The skin sleeping balm protect a gentle skin on your lips from drying it out, while giving the skin necessary nourishment.
Which K-Beauty Lip Balms Are Best For Dry Lips?
The skin on your lips is thinner than your facial skin. This means that during the bigger weather and temperature swings such as cold winter or hot summer, this thin layer is easily licked off, leading to chapped and dry lips. If this happens to you, then a lip balm will ensure that your lips are well moisturised and protected from cold and windy weather.
