Your lips are not just a visual eye-catcher, so to speak. But they are often endangered and need a certain amount of protection and care.
On the one hand, this is due to the fact that lips are relatively unprotected by nature, often come into contact with various substances (e.g. when breathing, eating or kissing) and are exposed to changing environmental influences (weather conditions). At the same time, your lip skin is comparatively thin. While the rest of the facial skin consists of up to 16 cell layers, the human lip only has three to five cell layers. In addition, your lips do not have any sweat or sebum glands and therefore cannot become greasy or otherwise regulate themselves. That's why it's important to know how to protect and care for your lips.
Lip care is up to you too
Sustainable lip care starts with basic oral hygiene. In this way, germs, fungi or other inflammations are reduced or prevented from the outset. In this context, you should also make sure to avoid permanent impairments in the event of tooth misalignments or problems with dentures. Equally, an adequate and balanced supply of liquids is one of the fundamentals for healthy lips. If you use lip balm for care, natural products with the appropriate ingredients
should be used. Of course, this also applies to lipsticks
. And if you are lucky enough to be outside when the sun is intense, then think about your lips when it comes to UV protection!
Be active when you are ill
Cold sores in particular can be painful and persistent. There are some home remedies like medicines that can then be used effectively. However, it is often also about individual experiences or the causes of this viral disease. If in doubt or in case of pain, it is better to go to the dermatologist! Chapped lips are also quite common, but can be treated with care balm
, Vaseline or simply by applying natural oils (e.g. olive oil). Sometimes a proven vitamin or iron deficiency is responsible for diseases of (on) the lip. In this regard, too, it is important for you to take appropriate precautions!
Healthy lips represent beauty and make you more attractive. Just make sure it stays that way by protecting your lips comprehensively and caring for them in the most natural way possible!
