Health Benefits at a Glance:
Our lips are the daily focal point of all social interaction. However, when it comes to skin care regimens, the importance of taking care of your lips is not something that immediately springs to mind. Your lips are very sensitive to external factors, which can compromise their structure. This can result in dry and chapped lips.
Vitamin C Lip Rejuvenator from Cosmesis is a unique lip balm which can leave you with healthy lips and a confident smile.
Why it Works:
Cosmesis Vitamin C Lip Rejuvenator is a unique lip balm against chapped lips. It is formulated with vitamin C, beeswax, zinc oxide, and olive fruit oil. Together, the ingredients in this formula provide powerful antioxidant protection. Moreover, they also ensure adequate skin moisture for your lips, leaving you with an impeccable smile.
The Science Behind the Product:
Our lips are composed of a very thin layer of skin and contain less of the pigment melanin. This means our lips are less able to protect themselves against repeated exposure to ultraviolet radiation and environmental pollutants.
Protecting lips against dryness, soreness, and chapping becomes more difficult as we grow older due to a significant drop in skin concentrations of vitamin C .
Research shows that topical application of vitamin C can turn the odds back in your favor by effectively penetrating lip skin where it operates through two mechanisms to combat aging:
Firstly, it neutralizes damaging free radicals from long-term sun exposure. This reduces oxidative stress that speeds up the loss of collagen—the skin’s structural foundation [2-4].
Secondly, it builds new collagen by activating collagen gene transcription and facilitating enzymatic reactions involved in stabilizing and organizing collagen molecules [5,6].
