Having fuller, sexier lips is something that we all want (thanks to celebrities like Kylie Jenner). Unfortunately, similar to Miss Jenner, full lips aren’t something that come naturally to most of us, which is where lip fillers come into play. With hyaluronic acid based lip fillers like Restylane, Dr. Foster can enhance the shape, size, and overall appearance of your lips to give you an almost instantly sexier look just in time to enjoy for the rest of the summer. But with hot temperatures and summer plans to lay out in the sun, your lips can dry out and look more chapped than anything. So, what can you do to keep your lips protected and hydrated?

Wear an SPF Lip Balm

An easy way to shield your lips while you’re spending hours in the sun is to wear a lip balm with an SPF in it. The trick with these lip balms, though, is to make sure that you reapply it often. Although you should apply regular sunscreen to your skin every two hours, you should reapply lip balm more often because it comes off really quickly when you lick your lips or even talk.

Drink More Water

The more dehydrated you are, the drier your lips are going to be. Make sure that you are drinking at least 64 ounces of water each day; that means that you need to drink eight glasses of water that are eight ounces each. If you have a hard time remembering to drink water, then try carrying around a reusable water bottle or cup with you; just having it on you will be a good reminder to drink it more often.

Exfoliate

After your fillers have settled into your lips, you can exfoliate them. Similar to how you would exfoliate the skin on your face, you need to get rid of the dead skin on your lips to create, smoother, healthier skin in the process. Just make sure that you use an approved lip scrub that contains all natural ingredients like sugar in it since you might ingest some while you are exfoliating.

The last thing you want is to have sexy new lips that look dry and deflated. If you want to learn a little bit more about lip injections, contact us today at 203-577-6550.
