How to Have Healthy Lips All Year Long

Get Perfect Valentine’s Day Lips

Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, and while we all want to look our best and feel confident year-round, this time of year may leave people searching for products that will help perfect their lips before special Valentine’s Day plans. Whether you’re looking to make a dramatic statement with a bold lip color or achieve plumper, more kissable lips without injectable fillers or more advanced dermatologic treatment, the Derm Skincare team has cultivated a list of dermatologist-recommended lip care products that can help you achieve just about any lip transformation or enhancement goals before Valentine’s Day. In this blog, we’re reviewing our curated list of recommended lip care products for enhancing and transforming your pout before Valentine’s Day and all year long.

SkinCeuticals Antioxidant Lip Repair

If your lips are showing signs of environmental damage (dryness, chapping, fine lines, and wrinkles), SkinCeuticals Antioxidant Lip Repair will restore kissable lips. This product attracts and retains moisture on the lips to provide both short-term and long-term hydration. SkinCeuticals Antioxidant Lip Repair is often recommended to help combat dryness associated with medications like isotretinoin which can leave lips feeling dry and chapped. It delivers powerful hydration that can rejuvenate lips, restoring a fuller and more youthful appearance. SkinCeuticals Antioxidant Lip Repair is safe and effective for daily use on all skin types.

Revision Skincare YouthFull Lip Replenisher

The lips, like other areas of the skin, show signs of aging. Over time, lips may not look as full and plump and people may notice more lines on and around the lips. Bring back your youthful, kissable lips with Revision Skincare YouthFull Lip Replenisher. This product repairs, hydrates, and protects the lips. You’ll notice right away that the Revision Skincare YouthFull Lip Replenisher is very thick. This is because, unlike most lip treatments, it doesn’t contain any water. The thicker formula ensures the product will stay in place, allowing all the ingredients to fully absorb and deliver maximum impact. Once in place, the anti-aging formula helps to plump and hydrate lips, increasing fullness and smoothing away lines and wrinkles. This lip-restoring solution is safe and effective for all skin types. However, it does contain wild mint leaf oils, so it should be used with caution by those with sensitive skin. Oils may also increase the risk of acne breakouts, so those with acne-prone skin may want to consult their dermatologist before use.

Colorescience Sunforgettable Lip Shine SPF 35

The Colorscience Sunforgettable Lip Shine SPF 35 product line comes in a wide range of colors. From basic neutrals to bolder statement colors, this lip gloss offers a hydrating boost paired with sun protection. Colorscience Sunforgettable Lip Shine SPF 35 is formulated with ingredients that are safe and effective for most skin types, but like any cosmetic product, they may contain ingredients that irritate sensitive skin or increase the risk for breakouts and flare-ups in chronic skin conditions like acne. Consult with a dermatologist before use if you’re concerned about potential side effects, especially if you’ve ever had an adverse response to lip care products in the past. Explore the available color options below to find out more.

  • Clear Lip Color – Offers moisturization and sun protection. The clear lip shine is a great option to pair with any lipstick or stain.
  • Pink Lip Color – The brightest color option makes a bolder statement.
  • Coral Lip Color – A great lip color for just about every skin tone.

EltaMD UV Lip Balm Broad-Spectrum SPF 36

Start using EltaMD UV Lip Balm Broad-Spectrum SPF 36 for kissable lips by Valentine’s Day. This product offers the dual benefit of healing, deep-moisturizing lip balm, and the protection of sunscreen to prevent damage from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. If you struggle with dry, chapped lips, the EltaMD UV Lip Balm Broad-Spectrum SPF 36 is the ideal product. It contains 5% hydromanil, which is an ingredient that delivers an immediate boost in moisture and offers long-term hydration. EltaMD UV Lip Balm Broad-Spectrum SPF 36 is formulated for use by people of all skin types. It is free of fragrance and other ingredients that may cause irritation, so it’s safe for sensitive skin.
