Everyone loves nice, soft and nurtured lips. Not only are they pleasent for eye but every product that comes on top of them looks 100 times better. Esspecially mat and liquid lipsticks. You have to take just a little bit of time out of your day for beautiful, nurtured lips and this post contains everything you need to know about lip care.

Svatko voli imati lijepe, meke i njegovane usne. Ne samo da ih je lijepo za vidjeti već i svaki proizvod koji dođe na njih tada izgleda 100 puta bolje. Pogotovo mat i tekući ruževi. Za lijepe i njegovane usne potrebno je izdvojiti malo vremena i pružiti im dovoljno njege, a upravo ovaj post sadrži sve što trebate znati o njezi usana.

Exfoliation

Exfoliation will help you remove all of the dead skin cells from your lips and will make them beautifully soft. Exfoliation is extremely important step in lip care esspecially before applying mat lipsticks. My favorite lip scrub is the one I make myself at home using honey, corn flour and a little bit of olive oil (click here for recipie). I use this scrub about 3 times a week, sometimes even more like during the cold weather for example when my lips get a bit dryer than usual. I feel like exfoliation is irreplaceable step in quality lip care. If you dont want to make your own homemade lip scrub there are plenty of premade ones avalible in drugstores that are totally as effective like Lush one for example.

Piling
Pilingom ćete odstraniti mrtve stanice kože sa usana i usne će vam nakon njega biti predivno meke i nježne. Piling usana užasno je bitan korak pogotovo prije nanošenja mat ruževa, a moj najdraži je ona koji si sama doma napravim od meda, kukuruzne krupice i malo maslinovog ulja (klik za recept). Piling usana radim otprilike tri puta tjedno, nekada i više (ovisno o potrebi) pogotovo u hladnije vrijeme kada su mi usne nešto suše no inače. Mislim da je dobar piling neizostavan korak u kvalitetnoj njezi usana. Ukoliko ne želite raditi domaći piling ili vam se jednostavno neda na tržištu postoji puno gotovih u ponudi koji su jednako efektivni kao npr onaj Lush-ov.



Nurture

After exfoliating your lips it's time to nurture them. It's so important to nurture your lips esspecially as colder weather is approaching. Today there are dozens of lip care products avalible in all price ranges so there is really something for everyone. Here is a few words about each type of lip care products.

  • Lip Balms- probably the most famous form of lip care products. They come in vareity of different colors, designs, finishes and prices. My current favorites are Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss, Melem and Alverde Calendula.
  • Lip Butters- they became a bit more famous in the past few years. They usually come in small metal tins and you have to apply them with finger so I wouldn't suggest using them outside of your house from hygienical reasons. So far I've only tryed Labello ones and I have to say that I absolutely love them and like them even more than lip balms.
  •  Lip Oils- one of the newer lip care proucts out there. They come in tubes with aplicators so they are super easy to apply and they are also avalible in vareity of shades that leave a nice, settle pigment on the lips. In my opinion they are something in between makeup and lip care product cause they do leave a nice tint yet they are ment to be very moisturizing as well. Still didn't had a chance to try them out but they surely seem very interesting.
  • Lip Masks- probably the newest lip care method from Middle East. They come in two forms- cream lip masks that come in containers and gel masks that are soaked in nursuring product. They became more used in the past year or so and look incredibly fun.

Njega

Nakon pilinga, naravno, dolazi red na njegu usana. Neizostavna je pogotovo sada kada nam dolazi hladnije vrijeme. Na tržištu je danas dostupno neopisivo puno proizvoda za njegu usana svih cijenovnih rangova i stvarno svako može naći nešto za sebe. Evo i nekoliko riječi o svakom tipu priozvoda ove vrste.

  • Balzami- vjerojatno najpoznatiji oblik mazalica za usne. Dolaze uglavnom u stickovima i u mnoštvu boja, dizajna, finisha i cijena. Moji trenutni favoriti su Maybelline Baby Lips- Peach Kiss, Melem u stiku i Alverde Calendula.
  • Maslaci- postali su nešto poznatiji zadnjih nekoliko godina. Obično dolaze u malim limenim posudicama, a s obzirom da ih je potrebno nanositi prstima, ne bi ih preporučila za korištenje van kuće iz higijenskih razloga. Do sada sam isprobala samo one Labellove i mogu reći da ih obožavam, a čak su mi i draži od balzama. 
  • Ulja za usne- jedna od novijih stvari na tržištu. Obično su pakirana u tubicama sa kistićem za lakše nanošenje, a dostupna su i u dosta raznih nijansi koje ostavljaju lijepi pigment na usnama. Po meni su nešto između dekorativnog i preparativnog proizvoda jer daju boju usnama, ali su isto tako namjenjena njezi. Nisam ih imala prilike isprobati no svakako mi se čine zanmljiva, a mislim da bi i po pitanju hidratacije mogla biti iznenađujuće dobra.
  • Maske za usne- vjerojatno najnovija i ne toliko poznata metoda za njegu usana nastala na bliskom istoku. Dolaze u dva oblika- kao kremasta maska za usne u posudici ili kao gel-maska koja je obično natopljena u proizvodu koji njeguje usne. Uzele su nešto više maha u zadnjih godinu dana te izgledaju nevjerojatno zabavne za isprobavanje.


Sada vam još samo preostaje uživati u vašim mekim i njegovanim usnama i zabavljati se isprobavajući nove ruževe koji će na njima izgledati bolje no ikad!
