1. YOUR LIPS ARE UNIQUE.

Your lips, just like your fingers, have prints that are unique to you. No two pair of lips are the same!

2. YOUR BLOOD MAKES YOUR LIPS LOOK RED (OR BLUE).

The skin on your lips is different from the rest of your body because it is thinner and more delicate. Skin on your face can be up to 16 cell layers thick while the skin on your lips is only 3 to 5 layers thick. This means your blood vessels are more apparent, giving your lips their pink or red colour. And there’s no escaping the truth when you’re cold because your blue lips will give you away every time!

3. YOUR LIPS GET THINNER AS YOU AGE.

Your mouth’s plumpness is due in large part to the collagen it contains. As you age, your body produces less of this protein and your lips slowly decrease in volume. Another factor that can make your lips thinner: UV rays. That’s why it’s important to protect your lips from the sun by using a lip balm with SPF.

4. THE PROTUBERANCE IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR UPPER LIP HAS A NAME.

In fact, it has many scientific names but the easiest to pronounce is labial tubercle.

5. THE MOUTH IS ONE OF THE BODY’S MOST SENSITIVE ORGANS.

Just like in nipples, there are millions of nerve endings in lips, which makes them incredibly sensitive to heat, cold, touch, etc.

6. YOUR LIPS DON’T SWEAT AND DON’T SECRETE PROTECTIVE OIL.

Why? Because they don’t contain any sweat or sebaceous glands. These are responsible for producing the hydrolipidic film, which protects the skin and keeps it hydrated. It’s therefore unsurprising that your lips are more vulnerable to external aggressions (wind, cold, sun, etc.) and tend to dry more quickly than other areas on your body. Additionally, your lips only produce a small quantity of melanin, making them more sensitive to UV rays.
