Soft Lips, Great SMILE

The skin on your lips is just as important to look after as the rest of your body. The skin here is thinner and more delicate and also contains an abundance of nerve endings making them more sensitive to touch as well as hot and cold temperatures.

Another factor that adds to the vulnerability of lips is the lack of sebaceous glands. These glands are responsible for providing moisture to the skin, but as the lips don't have any, their only source of moisture is from the saliva when licking your lips. This is why lips are much more likely to be dry and chapped, if not taken care of. 

Applying lip balm will not only nourish your lips but will provide protection from the elements too.
