Dr. Joel Schlessinger discusses lip textures with BeautyHigh.com
Are lip textures like fingerprints? Does each person have a unique texture that could determine the type of lip colors and products that work best for them? It’s certainly a possibility! Recently, Dr. Joel Schlessinger sat down with BeautyHigh.com to examine these questions in the article, “Our Lips Aren’t All the Same: Why Some Lipsticks Work Better On You.”
Moisture level plays a key role in the application of lip products, says Dr. Joel Schlessinger.
Lip moisture levels vary from person to person due to genetics, habits, climate, and even the other products in your skin care and beauty routine. The amount of moisture in your lips determines the types of products that work well for you as well as the longevity of your lip color. “For some, [low moisture levels] could allow less lipstick to stay on, while many folks are able to go without [applying] lipstick for periods of time due to the extra moisture,” says Dr. Schlessinger.
Dr. Joel Schlessinger discusses common causes of dry skin and lips.
If you struggle with dry skin, you probably find yourself reaching for lip balm just as often as body lotion. Those with dry skin often have dry lips as well, and medication could be a contributing factor to stubborn dryness. Dr. Schlessinger reminds us, “Patients who are on Accutane or other drying medications also have trouble with dry lips. Without moisture, any lip color you apply will wear off quickly.”
Age also factors into lip texture. As we get older, our lips often change, losing moisture and volume just as our skin does. This will cause fine lines to appear, lip texture to become rough or uneven and lip color to grow dull.
