Pucker up ladies and gentlemen, let’s talk about your lips. What exactly are you doing to take care of them?
The skin that covers your body is not the same skin that makes up your lips. The skin of your lips is much thinner than your body’s. Because of this, your lips lack glands that produce sweat and oil, which means they do not have a natural way to keep moisture in, unlike the rest of your skin. While you may dread blotting away the grease from your forehead and laugh lines, you should thank those glands because they keep your skin moisturized.
So what can you do to help your lips stay kiss-able?
The easiest answer is to stay hydrated. Drinking enough water throughout the day is one of the most beneficial things you can do for your body, especially your lips. Your lips chapping and flaking are some of the first signs that you may be dehydrated. Keep that water bottle handy!
Another major key to keeping your lips soft and healthy is being aware of the seasons. During the summer months, your skin is susceptible to sunburn. When lathering your body with sunscreen, don’t forget about the most fragile skin you have, your lips! And while the winter months have their own causes of concern, chapping and dryness, the dry, cold air you experience in winter pulls moisture away from you.
For a more direct way to keep your lips supple, we have the product for you!
Our THE MOTHER PUCKER lip balm is lightweight and soothing. This lip balm is hydrating and assists in cellular turnover, which fights against free radical damage. THE MOTHER PUCKER contains botanical superpowers such as Tusli, known as holy basil, Golden Jojoba, and Organic Rosehip Co2.
- Tulsi has antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties, which aids in combating irritations caused by cold weather, stress, and injury.
- Golden Jojoba is made up of fatty acids. It is composed of liquid wax with unparalleled molecular stability which is perfect for a lip balm.
- Organic Rosehip Co2, we prefer the Co2 extraction method for this rich, pure, unadulterated rosehip seed oil; the Co2 extraction encapsulates the entirety of the chemical profile of the plant. Bypassing the use of potentially harmful solvents. Rosehip is an amazing ingredient that helps retain moisture, protects against sun damage, and is rich in vitamin A and C, linked to increased collagen production.
Regardless of the season, your lips need to be protected against the elements through snow and sun. Your lips are one of the most sensitive parts of your body and need extra care and attention. Staying hydrated and swiping on a trusty lip balm will keep your lips smooth and soft and ready for all the kisses.
