Put lip lines to bed with Dermalogica’s new Nightly Lip Treatment which smooths away laugh and feather lines while you sleep!

This rich overnight formula firms, hydrates, and restores skin on and around the lips, plus improves skin elasticity and helps control ageing 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 ageing, 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, new Nightly Lip Treatment targets the intrinsic (physiological) and extrinsic (external) factors which contribute to lip ageing.

Caroline Parker, Head of Education for Dermalogica New Zealand, says “Ageing 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 using your lips!”

Lips lack the protective outer layer (strateum corneum) 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. To address the signs of ageing unique to the perioral region, we have created Nightly Lip Treatment to firm, hydrate, and restore skin.

Key ingredients include:
• Indian Gentian Extract helps reduce skin fragility and reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the lips
• Volumising technology helps to volumise lips and reduce the appearance of fine lines
• Sesame Seed Extract helps smooth and decrease the appearance of nasolabial fold lines, wrinkles, and roughness
• Shea Butter increases hydration and improves skin elasticity while restoring barrier function against visible signs of ageing
• Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract and Glycerin complex helps enhance skin hydration and smooth lips

Skin repairs itself during sleep, making night time an ideal time to treat and prevent skin ageing. To use, after cleansing, apply Nightly Lip Treatment generously around the lip area, focusing on marionette and feather lines, and massage into skin.

Nightly Lip Treatment is offered in a 10 mL bottle featuring an airless pump and cooling metal applicator with a suggested retail price of $95. It will be available 16th June 2017 nationwide.
