Effective Lip Care - Things to Remember:
More than almost any other skin on our bodies, the lips need hydration and sun protection. Facial skin typically has up to 16 layers, but with only three to five layers our lips are much more delicate. And did you know lips have no oil or sweat glands? That means if they dehydrate, the lost moisture is not naturally replaced.
There are natural proteins, called glycosaminoglycans, which work to hold in the moisture, but as we age, the natural production of these proteins lessens. This is why chapped and cracked lips can become a problem. But there are more serious health concerns that can affect these expressive assets. Cancer of the lip can be caused by the ultraviolet radiation in sunlight, and our lips are often more exposed to the sun than we realise, even in winter. Wearing a hat plus using a lotion or balm that contains sunscreen reduces this risk but the level of protection depends on how well and how often you apply the treatment â€“ and how long you spend in the sun. Of course, sun protection is not always essential if you’re spending a lot of time indoors, but that’s when air-conditioning and indoor heating can still have damaging, drying effects.
