Beauty Therapist’s tips and tricks: keeping your lips hydrated and healthy

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, we’ve been on the hunt for the best tips, tricks, and products for a hydrated and healthy pout. We went straight to our most trusted source, Lavish Beauty Therapists! We chatted to therapist Charlotte and she gave us some great insight into keeping your lips looking amazing. Read all her advice below…

How important is it to include our lips in our daily skincare routine?

Our lips have to put up with a lot in our lives! Lips can easily become intensely chapped, dry, and can even crack. It is important to keep them hydrated and protected. Applying a protective product daily is essential to maintaining optimum lip health!

What are your tips and tricks for keeping your lips hydrated?

Include your lips into your weekly facial exfoliation. Always apply a balm or lip hydrator after brushing your teeth! Our La Prairie Perfection Porter is a small compact to be kept in your handbag, delivering a sheer gloss to the lips and filling in fine lines.

What are your favourite lip products?
  • Lumi Crystal Lip Plump by Cosmedix! On top of the instant sheer, glossy effect (that even works well over lipstick), this hero product also hydrates and plumps lips while reducing fine lines. It includes liquid crystal for intense hydrating and revolutionary peptides to boost lip collagen.
  • A multi use hero product of ours, Eye Doctor, is one of the most underrated products we stock in salon! This multi-use eye cream can be used sparingly at night time along the fine lines developing around the lips. Containing vitamin A, this eye cream works to smooth lines long term, making it one of the few products available for this use!

Are there any Lavish treatments you’d recommend if our lips are in need of some TLC?

Of course! We can include the lips into our facials—steam and enzymes work a treat! LED Light Therapy and our revitalising peptide masks also work to plump and rejuvenate.

No matter whether you’re loved up or flying solo this Valentine’s Day, your lips deserve a pamper. To book a treatment or shop our products, call us on (03) 9827 9243 or email us at
