The skin on our lips is so soft and thin that the blood vessels can be seen through it. That’s what gives our lips their red colour. Our lips don’t have any sebum or sweat glands, which are responsible for supplying our skin with oil and moisture. And the corneal layer, which protects our skin from harmful environmental influences, is very thin on our lips, as well. Our lips are therefore dependent on care and protection from the outside.
Lip balm is the secret ingredient for smooth lips. As your lips cannot produce any moisture for themselves, when water evaporates from the lips, they can dry out. That's why its important to give your lips plenty of care. Lip balms usually contain higher oil content and beeswax which can help seal in moisture.
Don’t forget to keep a good lip balm in your bag. When applied several times a day, lip balm keeps your lips nourished and plump. As well as their nourishing power, lip balms also act as a protective layer, blocking the damaging effects of the elements.
