Q: Do lips age along with the rest of the skin? What products are helpful to use?
MyChelle Dermaceuticals licensed esthetician Catie Wiggy responds:
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but, absolutely–lips age. And what you put on them is just as important as what you put into your mouth. Every time you apply a lip product with less than healthful ingredients, you’re ingesting toxic chemicals, fillers and dyes.
But I have some good news to go with the bad. MyChelle lip care is truly good enough to eat! You’ll never find harsh waxes, artificial colors or flavors, or petroleum based ingredients. Instead, we use nourishing plant oils and butters, and all-natural flavors enhanced with stevia.
In addition, to moisturizing and protecting your lips, MyChelle lip care features the amino acid l-lysine and organic melissa to help calm the occurrence of blisters. Antioxidant vitamin E protects and soothes lips, while plumping MaxiLipâ„¢ Peptide hydrates and revolumizes, supporting collagen repair and improving contours.
In clinical studies after 29 days treatment with MaxiLipâ„¢, test subjects reported a reduction in furrows by 30 percent, and an increase in lip volume by 40 percent and moisture retention by 60 percent.
MyChelle lip care is like balanced nutrition for your lips ““ with ingredients to protect, repair and nourish ““ for irresistibly soft, smooth and kissable lips!
My top pick at the moment is the Love Your Lips Red Cherry-Raspberry-Pineapple a luscious, nourishing, antioxidant rich lip treatment with organic melissa and lysine. Emollient, nourishing shea and kokum butters soothe chapped lips and protect lips from dehydration. You’ll love how it smells and feels. This exotic lip balm is packaged in a generous .5oz (14g) tube””the size really helps to cut digging through bags to find your lip balm!
