The skin on your lips is thin­ner and more frag­ile than skin on the rest of your face. It needs more TLC, which you can give it while you sleep.

Give the thin­ner skin on your lips the TLC it needs while you sleep.

Your lips have skin that is 75 per cent thin­ner than else­where on the face. It also has no se­ba­ceous glands, which is what Amer­i­can skin­care brand Kiehl’s says makes it more prone to dry­ness.

And be­cause our lips move so much, they lose wa­ter three times as fast. “De­hy­drated lips are dam­age-prone and can eas­ily lose vol­ume,” says Dr Yan­nis Alexan­drides, founder of skin­care brand 111Skin. That’s when they be­come dry and crinkly.

You should give your lips ex­tra help and pro­tec­tion, says Melissa Goh, se­nior prod­uct man­ager of YSL Beaute. How? By us­ing an overnight lip mask.

A lip mask has a thicker con­sis­tency and in­gre­di­ents that pro­vide an in­tense shot of mois­ture. It forms a pro­tec­tive bar­rier while nour­ish­ing the skin through the night. You wake up to hy­drated, sup­ple lips.

YSL Beaute Volupte Night Re­hab Lip Mask keeps lips soft, while pome­gran­ate ex­tract, an an­tiox­i­dant, helps re­pair dam­age to lips overnight. $52Hera Lip Pol­ish and Mask has two parts to it. The lip pol­ish ex­fo­li­ates, and the light­weight mask cre­ates a mois­ture bar­rier for overnight hy­dra­tion. $38Kiehl’s But­ter­mask For Lips melts right in when you ap­ply it. It has fatty-acid-rich co­conut oil to hy­drate, soothe and soften dry, flaky lips. $39111Skin Meso In­fu­sion Lip Mask and Plump­ing Duo does two things: The plump­ing mask fills in fine lines, and the hy­drat­ing mask mois­turises and nour­ishes. $190.
