It's Lip Appreciation Day {Plus Interesting Lip Facts}



lips


I did not know such a thing as Lip Appreciation Day existed. But today is the day! I thought it would be fun to share some facts you may not have known about in honor of it.


    -Lips can swell due to injuries, stimulation, and side effects.

    -The Egyptians invented the first lipstick over 4000 years ago.

    -The lip skin is not hairy and has no sweat glands.

    -Lips appear red due to the amount of tiny blood vessels underneath.                
                                                    
     -Most facial skin is composed of 16 cellular layers, while the lips only have 3 – 5.
     
-Lips do not have melanin in them.

    -Drinking water keeps your lips moisturized. 

    -Saliva has enzymes that break down food and do the same when it comes in contact with your lips. Thus, drying them out. 

  -As we age, our lips become more thin, lose volume, and turn inward.

  
  No matter what season it is, I also use chap stick. I love how it keeps my lips soft. It is something I use everyone day. Well actually a couple times a day. Since I use it so often, I have a bunch that I use. Here are just some of my favorites.





Nivea lip balm
Hempz Lip Balm
Burts Bees lip Balm
Softlips lip balm
 
Happy Lip Appreciation Day!
