Created by renowned Beverly Hills dermatologist, Zein Obagi, MD, ZO® Skin Health and ZO® Medical products feature high potency ingredients in concentrations that are powerful enough to truly make a difference in your skin.
The new ZO Medical LipRebuild Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment ($50) is no exception. It includes retinol, advanced peptides, and powerful antioxidants to slough dead skin and repair dry, cracking lips that make you look older. The LipRebuild complex is bioengineered to restore severely dry, cracked, and wrinkled lips using a clinically proven moisture recycling technology. Vitamins A and E and breakthrough plant stem cell antioxidants help defend exposed lips from further oxidative damage from the environment, i.e., the sun’s rays and pollutants. A clever advanced patented peptide complex also works to increase microcirculation to plump up your lips, improving overall shape, while restoring lips to their natural rosy hue. They also added a cooling complex that soothes parched lips.
According to Dr. Obagi, “The skin of the lips is very thin and gets constant exposure, making it more susceptible to the signs of aging. We used potent retinol in our Lip Rebuild formula to help restore severely dry, cracked, and wrinkled lips to an optimum healthy condition. The addition of powerful antioxidants also helps to defend lips from continued exposure to the environment and UV radiation.”
ZO® Medical LipRebuild can be used under lipstick or gloss, or on its own for added protection and extra comfort. Available exclusively from ZO Medical physicians in-office and through the ZO online physician stores at zoskinhealth.com.
Excerpted from iVillage.com
“When the temperature drops, lips get dry. You can’t just hide ’em behind lipstick and lip gloss… a red or pink mouth with splits and dead skin on it? So not sexy. Chapped lips are not just unsightly, they can become painful — cracking and bleeding — if not treated properly. Use lip balm, you suggest? Beauty pros point out that it won’t do the trick. In fact, lip balm might be the very chapped-lip culprit because it actually keeps moisture out. What’s a girl to do?
I turned to the experts and was surprised to learn that some of my own lip-caring methods are what’s making them worse!
