WHY LIP BALMS ARE ESSENTIAL
Although protection and making the lips look good has always been the preserve of women, men should also take care of their lips.
The skin covering your lips is extremely thin allowing the blood vessels to show through giving lips their characteristic redness. They have no sweat glands. The only moisture they have is from saliva which when it evaporates can lead to chapping. Lips have no melanin, so they cannot tan making them vulnerable to the sun.
A good lip balm should moisturize and lubricate without being greasy and should protect you from the sun.
