If there is one part of the face that deserves special care, it is the lips. Indeed, having beautiful lips is an important element that contributes greatly to the beauty of the face. Lips also allow us to express words, eat, smile, but also to kiss. How to have beautiful, soft and moisturized lips all year round?
Why is it important to moisturize a man's lips?
Because the skin of the lips is five times thinner than other parts of the body, it is necessary to take care of them on a daily basis. These very fragile tissues are subject to many factors that sometimes cause them to crack. This is why the skin of the lips needs to be nourished and strengthened regularly.
The lips are mostly covered with a highly vascularized, non-keratinized mucous membrane and therefore have no protection against external aggressive agents.
Therefore, it is important to pay special attention to them. Just as we use specific products for the rest of the body, we must do the same with our lips to give them softness and beauty!
Why do lips get damaged so easily?
As you've noticed, lips are easily damaged, and it's all your beauty that suffers, including your smile. Indeed, lips are in demand all day long: by talking, eating or smoking. Some people also sometimes have stress-induced tics that damage the skin on their lips, either by pulling on the skin or by nibbling them mechanically.
Climatic factors can also play a role in lip health: cold, wind, sun, dry atmosphere... Contrary to what you might think, lips are not only damaged in winter. Other factors cause them to dry out, all year round.
Cold is still the main cause of dry lips. When dehydration is too great, chapping can occur. Thus, you will notice that lips are more damaged in winter than during the rest of the year. This is because the cold dries out the skin more quickly.
Wind contributes to the drying of the skin in general, including the lips. Dry air causes loss of radiance, dryness and sometimes even chapping.
The sun is also an important aggression for the lips due to ultraviolet rays. It is a source of dryness for the lips. They can also be lightly burned by the sun, and can sometimes get sunburned.
Urban men suffer more often from dry and damaged lips. Pollution is a factor that brings a lot of discomfort to the lips. Pollution causes disturbances in the skin's protective barrier, which leads to dryness.
The lips of men who smoke deteriorate faster than those of men who do not smoke. Cigarettes are a trigger for dry, dehydrated lips.
The food on your plate also has a role to play in the beauty of your lips. Choose foods that are rich in water and vitamins, which will help to moisturize your skin. Make sure you drink enough water at every season of the year.
Creams, lip sticks and cosmetics of all kinds with chemical ingredients are to be banned for healthy lips. Applying them to your lips may cause them to dry out further. In addition, substances found in conventional cosmetics are unsuitable for your skin and can be dangerous to your health.
Some medicines are known to dry the skin, especially the lips. Examples include corticosteroid-based ointments and acne medications.
How can dry, chapped lips be relieved?
Having soft, clean, well-moisturized lips reflects a man who takes care of himself. Since lips are an important part of the face and visible every day, it is important that they do not appear neglected. To keep their natural radiance and beauty, simply adopt a few reflexes on a daily basis.
The first thing you can do to avoid damaging your lips is to stop biting them and tearing off dead skin. And if you feel your lips are dry, don't run your tongue over them to moisten them. In fact, the more you do this, the drier the skin gets. And yet, the drier the skin is, the more you feel the urge to moisten it. It's a real vicious circle! In any case, limiting as much as possible these small gestures that you do unconsciously helps to prevent inconveniences.
Weakened lips tend to form dead skin. In order to care for them gently and to find a nice smooth and moisturized mouth, exfoliation is ideal. Once or twice a week when your lips are particularly sensitive and all year round when you feel the need, exfoliate your lips with a gentle and natural product to avoid damaging them.
To have beautiful lips, it is advisable to nourish them regularly with natural repairing balms. No need to wait until dead skin and chapped lips are already there! In the morning or evening after showering, apply a small amount of your balm to your clean lips. The night is probably the best time, as the active ingredients penetrate deep into the skin.
À Due to external aggressions but also to age, the lips lose elasticity. So, to prevent lip ageing, it is possible to use an antioxidant care that protects the skin. Favour a gentle, anti-ageing treatment so as not to further damage your lips.
As often as possible, moisturize your lips with an organic lip stick with good natural ingredients. Whatever the weather and the season, you should always have a moisturizing or nourishing treatment on hand.

That's why it's important to take care of them, especially when you're a city man! The mouth being an important part of the face, is also a real asset of seduction that bewitches women. Because when looking at a mouth, each individual imagines all sorts of sensual, even sexual things. The lips are therefore a very attractive part of the face.
"Persuasion reigns on the lips" - Sylvain Maréchal
Having beautiful lips for a man is also synonymous with good hygiene. A man who moisturizes his lips daily is a man who takes care of his appearance and his body. This image sends back to women something pleasing and sexually attractive. In addition, taking care of your lips increases your self-confidence and expresses your masculine daring.
Why use organic and natural cosmetics to moisturize your lips?
At Sybarite, we attach great importance to organic products and natural ingredients. This is why our moisturizing and repairing balms are entirely formulated with healthy products designed to care for the lips in the most natural way possible.
Since the skin of the lips is much thinner than the rest of the body, it is essential to use organic cosmetic products in order to respect it. Your lips are also devoid of sebaceous glands, which does not allow you to have a protective lipidic film on the skin.
As a result, your lips, when they are damaged or dry, need to be repaired and moisturised with good ingredients that do not damage them further. To achieve naturally beautiful lips, natural peeling, daily moisturising and healthy eating are key factors.
