Did You Know? Dry Skin Remedies In Your Shower

did you know?Lips Age, Too

As we grow older, like the rest of our skin, our lips change. Lips, after all, are basically skin—which means they need to be cared for, too.

Lips are moisturized by tiny oil glands. As the years go by, these glands stop functioning optimally. So look for lipsticks and lip balm that contain petrolatum, dimethicone and glycerine to help retain moisture. Also, just as you look for facial moisturizers with SPF, be sure to use lip products that contain broad-spectrum sunscreen with both UVA and UVB blocking ingredients. Aesthetically, this will help to minimize scaling. But more important, it can help prevent sunburn, which can lead to other issues like precancerous lesions or even skin cancer.
