Why do lips become dry?
With the theme this week at Hi HQ being love then we are thinking about kissing and of course lipstick which is a staple in our handbags. There are no working sebaceous glands in our lips. These glands, if they were operational, would serve the purpose of keeping our lips moist. Therefore, our lips can dry out.
Another factor that affects our lips is the aging process. As you get older, cracks can appear and deep wrinkles on the lips. Lips can sometimes become thinner in appearance and lose definition.
We want to make sure that you don’t suffer from dry, chapped or even uncomfortable lips. Here are some of the best lip products from Apivita that will hydrate and protect your lips over the coming months to ensure you’re all set for Valentine’s Day!
