The health of your lips and the sun

The lips are thin and very fragile mucous membranes which make the blood vessels more visible, thus giving the lips their pinkish or reddish color. They have over a million nerve endings which makes them super sensitive to heat, cold and touch. Part of the plumpness of our mouth is due to the collagen. As we age, our lips lose their volume due to our decrease in collagen. Another factor that contributes to the thinning of our lips is UV rays. That is why it is very important to protect our lips adequately.

Dehydration of our lips can also lead to chapping and cracking. These lesions are not only a source of discomfort, but also increase the risk of inflammation. Taking care of your lips is essential in order to limit the risk of disease and contamination by certain viruses. Our lips do not sweat or secrete any protective oils because they are devoid of sweat and sebaceous glands. Therefore, it is not surprising that our lips are more vulnerable to external climate change and tend to dry out more quickly than other parts of our body.
