Lip protector

The skin of the lips is thinner and more sensitive than that of the rest of the body. It is made up of 5 layers of cells, while body dermis is made up of 16. The lips also do not produce melanocytes, therefore it does not tan and is vulnerable to the sun. To these circumstances it should be added that the lips lack sebaceous or sweat glands and are not protected and hydrated with lipids like the rest of the face.

Lips are sensitive to external aggressions such as weather, allergies, medication, diseases, infections or nutritional deficiencies. An incidental lip problem is usually not severe, and the pharmacist can advise us to treat it. In the case of persistent lip dryness, the lips become flake and swollen.

A balm can both heal and protect the cracked lips and nose area. It also controls the loss of skin and rehydrate natural moisture. Preventive use of these remedies is recommended, including using them at bedtime, when skin regeneration accelerates and the mouth rests in a sheltered environment.

How does a lip protector help?

Protectors are available in jar or tube formats, can be used on the nose and lips; some added menthol, caramel or candy smell. The texture is soft, with gloss effect and immediate hydration. Other protectors include pure rosehip oil, a dermal repairer.

It is essential that remedies incorporate a high sun protection factor. Prevent lip deterioration from sun exposure. Just like the protection factor that sun creams have for the body or face, we can find lip protector with different factors for our lips.

The skin on our lips has no melanin, and are therefore more susceptible to sun damage than the rest of the skin. In addition UV rays decrease collagen production, causing wrinkles and other signs of aging.

Choose the best lip protector

Remember that it is always very important to choose the right one for your skin type. At least you must choose a protection factor equal to or greater than 15. Skin Types:

  • Normal skin. Balanced: neither fat nor excess dry.
  • Dry skin. It produces less sebum than normal skin. It feels rough and dull.
  • Oily skin. Produces excess sebum. Bright with visible pores.
  • Mixed skin. A mixture of skins between the T-zone and the cheeks.

The use of lip gloss as a protector should be avoided; it is not the same product: the brightness acts as a receiving screen of UV rays by attracting them directly to your lips and causing possible burns, redness or swelling in the area. Lip gloss can have very negative consequences on your skin, the most suitable is a lip repairer

Let yourself be advised by your pharmacist,he will be able to recommend the right cosmetics for your skin type, and you can be protected every time you go out on the street.

Lip protectors are often water resistant, and it's recommended that you always wear them and apply them every time you feel your lips need to be hydrated.
