Pretty, soft and kiss-able lips!

Our lips take a lot of abuse but we often forget to protect them like we do our other skin.  Lips have no oil or sweat glands and we are constantly exposing them to things that irritate...like spicy foods, citric acids, hot drinks, etc.  Plus, during the summer we go from dry, heated air to cold frigid air and back.  We are also our own worst enemy to our lips when we "lick" our lips.  Saliva evaporates quickly, so while it may feel good, licking your lips can make them drier than before and the enzymes that help your saliva clean your mouth and digest food are much too harsh for your lips.

So what do you do if your lips are feeling dry or chapped to get them kiss-ably soft and keep them that way?

The charcoal in question isn’t the stuff you put in your barbecue grill. The charcoal used for skin care is what’s known as activated charcoal. It just means it has been treated to increase its absorbency. Activated charcoal isn’t anything new—it’s been around for years. It got its start in the emergency room as a treatment for accidental poisonings. because the charcoal absorbs the foreign substance before it has a chance to enter the bloodstream.
