When you think how much your lips go through on a daily basis – eating, kissing, talking, laughing, pen chewing, and using it as an extra hand. They’re clearly important for many things but they sometimes don’t get the same protection as the rest of our skin does. Since lips don’t have oil or sweat glands, they are constantly being exposed to irritants through the air or objects. Mouths need more care than the rest of our skin because of this lack of protection, and taking care of your lips can be easy.
Keep your hands, or saliva off them. We are all guilty of licking our lips when they feel a bit dry, but saliva can actually dry them out. Your saliva evaporates quickly, leaving them drier than before, and the enzymes that help your saliva clean your mouth and digest food are much too harsh for your lips. Avoid touching your lips unless you know they’re clean since this is the easiest way to transfer germs and bacteria directly from hand to mouth.
Eat healthy and drink plenty of water. It’s not only good for your body, mind and skin but it’s also good for your lips. We all know that eating healthier can make our complexion better, but the same can apply to your lips. Your lips are dependent on a steady intake of vitamins and minerals, so consume healthier, nutrient-dense foods like fresh fruits and vegetables. Vitamins B and E are especially important for healthy lips and skin. Drinking water regularly will also keep your lips (and whole body!) hydrated.
Pick a good lip balm. You need to look out for lip balms that contain health and moisturizing benefits. Look for lip balm products with a base of beeswax, petroleum jelly or paraffin. These seal in moisture and won't evaporate. You should also look for a lip balm with sunscreen in it, because lips can get sunburnt too! It’s also been suggested that your lip balm stops working when there is a buildup of product, so make sure to exfoliate your lips once a week.
Treat yourself to a lip mask. They’re not just for the face! There are specially designed lip masks on the market that you can use over your lips – just like a face mask. These lip masks assist in exfoliation and moisturizing, and will give you baby soft lips.
And finally, avoid wearing matte lipsticks. If you suffer with dry and cracked lips the last thing you want to do is apply a matte lipstick that will dry your lips out more. If you can, it would be best to avoid matte lipstick or lip creams in general when your lips are in poor condition. If you enjoy having color on your lips, use tinted balm but if you really want to wear a lipstick then opt for a lipstick with a creamy moisturizing finish to it.
We are all guilty of not doing out best at keeping our lips in good condition, but it’s Lip Appreciation Day and that means showing your lips that you care and rewarding them for all the things you put them through!
