Really, what is the purpose of lipstick? Are there any perks to or health benefits of wearing a lipstick? Relax and enjoy this post as it answers questions you might have found yourself asking or have been asked about lipsticks.
Lipstick is an essential part of makeup. Sometimes it doesn’t even need to be a full face beat, want to switch up your look from nude to glam, lipstick is your ‘guy’. It has been in existence since ‘forever’ and it doesn’t look like it’s going to go out of style. It has been established that lipsticks can help to enhance our natural beauty however, you may not know that there are other benefits including health benefits of lipsticks. That is what I’ll be talking about in this post. Without further ado, let’s get into it.
BENEFITS OF WEARING LIPSTICKS
1. Healing and Protection
Lipsticks form a protective barrier on our lips which helps to protect our lips in harsh weather particularly wind and cold. A lipstick with the right formula can also help to repair cracked lips and dryness. To have that soft, smooth and lush lips you desire, choose the right lipstick mostly ones that contain natural oils because they tend to be moisturizing.
2. Prevent Sun Damage
Ultraviolet rays of the sun not only cause harm to our skin, but it also affects the lips. As a matter of fact, the lips don’t contain melanin pigment which the skin has to reduce sun damage to an extent. There is, therefore, a need to protect. Some lipsticks contain SPF (usually 12 and above) and this helps to create a barrier against the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun.
3. Bright Smile
Want your smile to look bright and nice? Put in some lipstick. Lipsticks with cool undertones cancel the yellowish tint of the teeth and make your teeth appear white and nice. If you’re wearing lipstick with the goal of having a bright smile, stay away from warm tone lipsticks shades.
4. Enhances The Eyes
If you need your eyes to pop, either because they are your best feature or because they aren’t and you need something to make your eyes stand out, wear a lipstick. A lipstick can make your eye colour more prominent and make them stand out. As long as you choose the right shade of lipstick, you’re sure to see the effect.
5. Makes Your Lips Fuller Or Slimmer
This is one of the obvious benefits of a lipstick. It can make your lips look fuller or smaller, depending on what you want, how you apply it and the colour of lipstick you choose.
6. Psychological Boost
Believe me, lipstick has the ability to make you feel confident, powerful and ready to conquer the world. When you feel down and sad and it feels like everything isn’t going as planned, wearing lipstick can boost your spirit and make you see that there’s at least one thing that can still be enjoyed. Wearing a lipstick can make you empowered, confident about your feminity and have a positive energy that can be sensed from afar.
That’s all for now about the good effects of lipsticks. If you don’t already use lipsticks you really should consider getting one.
