Do you have healthy lips?
Lips need proper care on a regular basis to stay smooth. Having a good lip care routine and always keeping your lips hydrated can leave them looking beautiful and feeling much healthier.
The skin on our lips is much thinner and more delicate than the rest of the skin on our faces. This makes it much more susceptible to environmental factors, such as temperature, low humidity and other influences. These factors can leave lips dry, flaky and cracked, which can be very uncomfortable.
Applying lip balm daily is important for overall lip health because the skin on the lips is like none other on your body. It has no sebaceous glands, which means that it cannot make its own oils to keep it moisturized. It also has no melanin, which gives it no natural protection from the sun.
If the lips are not kept healthy, activities such as speaking and eating might become impaired. Peeling of the skin could lead to bleeding and infection, which may spread to other areas of the mouth. Scabby, peeling lips are also unattractive and cause you to be uncomfortable in social situations. To prevent these problems, try a number of different lip balm products until you find one that’s comfortable for you.
