February Is All About The Lips! How Does Your Pout Look?

For many places, February can be an unforgiving month, particularly for those of us in the northeast. The cold weather and lack of moisture can take a toll on our skin, leaving it dry and damaged. One of the biggest challenges during this time of year is dealing with dry and cracked lips. It’s not uncommon for lips to become so dry that they crack and even bleed. So, what are some ways to address this issue? Let’s delve into some solutions.

Best Way To Handle Dry Lips

The skin on your lips is made up of a thin stratum corneum (SC) and because it has no sweat or oil glands, it’s far more sensitive than the rest of the skin on your body. To add to it, the non‐keratinized epithelium of the lip skin is directly exposed to the outside world.

Because the skin is so sensitive, you must take care when using products in the area. This is where investing in quality products is important, including a good SPF that is made specifically for your lips.

To start, we highly recommend you start by investing in a scrub and a lip treatment. The scrub will help turn over those dead skins while the treatment will seal in moisture and hydrate the area.

The product we wish would be our Valentine is iS Clinical’s Lip Scrub and Hydrating Lip Treatment. This duo will tackle all of your lip hydration issues in just two steps.

It’s also important to drink plenty of water so you can stay hydrated internally. This is especially important in colder weather when your body may not ask for water as often as it does in the warmer months.

Smoothing Fine Lines Around The Mouth

If you are looking to smooth fine lines and wrinkles around your mouth, look no further than your Skincredible clinician. A simple filler, comprised of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), can help and depending on your provider, they can thread the filler in between the lines without increasing the size of your pout. Instead, they will only smooth out the fine lines and wrinkles surrounding your lips. Hyaluronic Acid works by attracting water to the area, which increases the hydration levels in the areas where it is injected.

Lips And Volume: What Happens?

Over time, our lips will lose their volume because of collagen loss, a natural part of aging. Environmental factors, genetics, and vitamin deficiency all play a part in speeding it up.

Remember that non-keratinized epithelium we talked about earlier in this post? Well, it is exposed directly to the sun and it’s that layer that makes protecting them harder.

Finally, smoking has a negative impact on your skin overall, but especially your lips. We all know the side effects of smoking at this point. Did you know that you pursing your lips to puff creates “smokers” lines? Yup.
