10 best lip masks to heal dry lips in 2021
As the temperature starts to drop and wind speeds start to pick up, your lips may require some additional TLC. The lack of moisture in the dry winter air can do a number on your lips if you’re not careful, leading to painful cracking and bleeding all season long. If you prepare ahead of time, a lip mask can help prevent this painful condition — the skin care staple is designed to create a barrier between your lips and the harsh winds to retain moisture. We spoke to dermatologists to learn more about how lip masks work, plus rounded up their lip mask recommendations.
Humectants: These “attract water from deeper layers of your skin and the environment,” said Jeriel Weitz, DO, a dermatologist at Schweiger Dermatology Group in New York City. Popular humectants include hyaluronic acid, glycerin and honey.
Collagen: Though not a necessity in a lip mask, Weitz said that collagen can be a good ingredient to look for as it “can help to plump the lips.”
