Research has found that the suns rays are responsible for 80% of skin ageing, which is why I’m always banging on about SPF. Lips and eyes are particularly vulnerable to the effects of UV ageing, because skin here is particularly thin and delicate.The skin on your face is made of around 16 layers where the skin on your lips is made from 3-5 layers which is why they appear pink in colour, its not pigment that gives them the pinky tone it’s actually the blood vessels under the skin showing through.
People only really really to look after their lips when they are sore & cracked applying balm every .35 seconds. Lips are one of the first areas to show signs of ageing, particularly in women but daily use of a broad-spectrum UVA and UVB sunscreen, anti-oxidants and emollients can help slow this process down protect against lip cancers, which are seen more in people who spend a lot of time outside.
Always have dry lips? This is because they can’t produce natural oils & become dehydrated so keeping them hydrated is pretty important to maintain lip health.
Hydrate & protect for the perfect pout.
