Lips are one of the most common areas of our bodies that we tend to neglect. Lips do differ from the skin on other areas of our bodies and this means they need special attention. Lips are composed of very thin skin layers and do not contain any oil glands.
Lips are one of the most sun exposed parts of the body and are very vulnerable to dryness and damage. Since the lips do not contain any melanin, they do not have any natural UV filters. Make sure to get a lip treatment with a good SPF. The sun can also damage the collagen in lips, leaving them wrinkled and thin.
There are lip treatments available that contain beneficial exfoliants. Make sure to use a product specific for the lip area as lip tissue differs greatly from the skin on other areas of our bodies. Exfoliation can help to increase lip volume by plumping the skin and it can help with hydration by removing dead skin cell build up.
Our lips help define who we are. Be ready for all the attention you will receive with a new, improved, beautiful pout.
