Dermalogica’s new Nightly Lip Treatment smooths away laugh and feather lines while you sleep. This rich overnight formula firms, hydrates, and restores skin on and around the lips, improves skin elasticity, and helps control aging before it starts.
As we age, the formation of vertical lines above the upper lip, sagging in the perioral (mouth) region, and feathering outside of the lips become more pronounced – especially for those with a history of smoking. Though the eyes are often thought to show the first signs of aging, the lip and mouth area develop some of the most dramatic visible differences. Just as an eye cream is specially formulated to address the specific needs of the delicate eye area, this Nightly Lip Treatment targets the intrinsic (physiological) and extrinsic (external) factors which contribute to lip aging.
Lips lack the protective outer layer that facial skin has, and fewer layers overall (3-5 layers versus the face’s 16). Lips also lack the same composition of oil and sweat glands that provide moisture to other areas of the face, while at the same time, saliva dries out lips’ natural oils. As a result, moisture evaporates from lips faster than the rest of the face, contributing to visible lines and feathering. Aging in the mouth region, including marionette lines and nasolabial folds, can also be caused from collagen breakdown from damaging UV rays, trans-epidermal water loss, smoking, drinking through a straw, and whistling. It’s no laughing matter: lip lines can be caused by simply using our lips! Enter Nightly Lip Treatment. So what makes this product a hero? Check out its key ingredients below.
