You use it give a pop of color to your lips, you dab it on your cheeks for a natural flush, and these days, even on eyelids too!
But did you know that a lipstick’s versatility doesn’t end there? Apparently, this makeup essential also plays a part in people’s skincare routines.
The procedure is simple. After cleansing your face for bedtime, glide some product on the spots and that’s it! See your pimples shrink overnight (depending on your skin type).
How does this work?
Lipstick helps in shrinking acne or pimples.
How this cosmetic product became a skincare hack is quite bizarre, if you phrase it that way. But, actually, it’s because of waxes such beeswax, ozokerite, and candelilla that make up (pun intended) a lipstick causing the area to dry up— which explains why your face appears smoother afterwards.
In addition, Carnauba wax— a key ingredient that maintains the lipstick on its solid form, thanks to its high melting point— removes dead skin cells, oil, and dirt.
Does this work?
Is this effective? Well, that is the question. Here are some testaments from people who have tried and tested:
