Document

Warmer months of the year are the worst for your lips. Despite high humidity during much of the spring and summer, lips go through blazing sun, high heat, and just plain old wear and tear. This can lead to red, dried out or chapped lips, which can be really painful and not-so-pretty! However, if you know how to take care of your pout properly, you can keep them smooth and soft.

Smoking

Smoking can cause a lack of circulation and lead to chapped lips and even wrinkles. Yikes!

No SPF

Wearing an SPF (sun protection factor) on your lips is vital because if you don’t, they’ll get sunburnt and dry out.

Parabens

Parabens are present in most commercial lipsticks, and can be very damaging to the delicate skin on your lips.

Fragrance

Fragrances of any kind are also present in a lot of lipsticks, and are terribly drying.

Dry Air
