Does Your Skincare Routine Include Lip Care? Because It Should.


This feature is in conjunction with paid inclusion in the Hello Salon Pro by The Tease April Box.

Retinol is bible when it comes to turning back time on our skin. But, how many of us are using this all-star ingredient to target lines and shadows around our lips? Even the most maximalist skincare routines –– Korean 10 Steppers, we’re looking at you –– might be lacking this super important step.

Between smile lines and marionettes, our mouths become focal points of texture and discoloration as we age. However, we’re hard-pressed to find products that are specifically designed to target these skincare pain points. Frequents of The Tease know we’re all about science-backed, super effective and extra luxe products. And luckily, we’ve found one product to meet all our needs.

Our New Holy Grail

Dermelect’s Smooth Upper Lip & Perioral Anti-Aging Treatment uses a combo of skin brighteners, peptides and moisture-binding ingredients to erase vertical lines, smile lines and discoloration. From a company centered around unveiling “intelligent self care solutions that [are] ingredients-focused, yet ultra-luxurious,” we’ve got only two words: yes, please!

Rather than surrendering to lifeless lips, this “cosmeceutical” treatment pulls out all the stops with fan-favorite anti-aging ingredients, including hyaluronic acid, collagen and retinol (on top of other super heros). A quick application keeps skin looking supple, smooth and youthful.

Remember to always wash your hands before applying skin care. Starting out conservative lets your skin build up a tolerance to these highly effective actives and avoid irritation. Use your fingers to apply a small amount of product once a week before bed. Focus the product above, below and at the corners of your mouth.

Call us #extra, but we’re all about welcoming new additions to our routines –– especially if they bring big results. Luckily, this one is coming to our doors in this month’s Spring Fling Box from Hello Salon Pro. Each month, Hello Salon Pro by The Tease sends six full-sized products for our fave professionals to trial and treasure at home.
