How to protect your dry lips this winter
Here’s how and why we should take extra care in protecting your dry lips.
Our skin is made up of three layers: the epidermis, the dermis and a subcutaneous fat layer. The stratum corneum tops the epidermis as a protective layer (against bacteria, moisture loss, heat and light), but the skin on our lips is much thinner than the skin covering most of our body — in fact, on our lips this protective layer is four to five times thinner compared than the skin on our face And because there are no sweat glands or hair follicles on our lips, they don’t get the same kind of natural protection that skin on other areas of our body does.
