As the air turns colder and winter approaches, it’s the time of year when our skin starts to react to the harsh elements. You may not be aware that the skin on your lips is the most sensitive skin on the face, so ChapStick wants to help to protect lips from the cold with Hydration Lock – a premium lip balm with advanced moisturizing ingredients. The formula keeps lips hydrated for a full eight hours by locking in the lips’ natural moisture and also drawing it in from outside.

Hydration Lock contains a nourishing complex of ingredients, including antioxidant CoQ10, ultra-hydrating Hyaluronic Spheres and Vitamin E, to hydrate, revitalize and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the lips. Whether worn alone or as a base for color, Hydration Lock gives lips a smoother and fuller appearance and provides an enhanced lip feel.

The skin on the lips has unique properties which distinguish the lips from the skin on the rest of the body and requires special attention. These facts from the lip care experts at ChapStick® highlight the importance of lip health and advanced skincare for your lips:

The Facts:

  • Lips need more help to stay smooth than the rest of the body because lips don’t
  • Lips visibly age, just like the rest of the face
  • Lips dry out faster than any other part of the body and are the most sensitive skin on
  • The lips have the most fragile skin on the body
  • The lips’ protective layer is four to five times thinner compared to the rest of the have the same amount of natural oils as the rest of the body

The Factors:

Eating or drinking can affect the lips:

  • Drinking coffee or wine can irritate your lips
  • Salty or acidic foods can strip lips of moisture
  • Not drinking enough water can dry out lips

Lips are more susceptible to the environment (sun, pollution, wind) than any other part of the body or face:

  • Dry air or arid places like Arizona and Texas can dry out lips by stealing moisture.
  • Lips are more susceptible to sunburns because they contain little to no melanin, from them which protects against the sun’s rays.

Many daily habits can cause the lips to dry out, these include:

  • Talking
  • Breathing from the mouth
  • Constant licking of lips, since the enzymes in saliva cause dryness and cracking
  • Chewing and nibbling lips can cause irritation and chapping
