At this day and age, we tend to be well educated with the importance of sun protection and the damages it does to your skin.
But when it comes to sun protection for the lips, we often turn a blind eye. Lips are actually more vulnerable to sun damage, as the skin layer protecting it is very thin and its inability to produce enough melanin (skin pigments), means that it is incapable of blocking out the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays alone. Help is needed. Daily lip care is important to keep your lips from cracking, burning, chapping and cold sores.

Vitamin B3 (Niacin)

Vitamin B Complex is needed for the proper functioning of almost every process in the body and is essential to promote healthy radiant looking skin and hair. Deficiencies in any B Vitamins can lead to acne, brittle hair, rashes, dry skin, poor skin tone, dermatitis, wrinkles, and split nails.
Vitamin A derived skin care products can be found in many anti-aging beauty formulas. The antioxidant effect of vitamin A helps rejuvenate the skin from deep down within the collagen fibres working hard to reverse damages caused by free radicals from sun damage, smoking and other environmental factors.
Keep in mind that excessive vitamin A is not excreted like vitamin C or B. Vitamin A Is a fat soluble vitamin meaning that it is stored in the body. Eating a couple of carrots is not going to hurt. Natural sources of beta carotine is not converted to vitamin A until until your body converts it when necessary. Synthetic man-made vitamin A such as Tretinoin is a different story. Large doses can become toxic and in some cases lethal.
The human body does not produce Vitamin C and it needs to be taken in our diet or as dietary supplements. The good thing is that vitamin C is readily available in many plant and animal sources such as broccoli, cauliflower, green leafy vegetables, papaya, orange, lemons, grapefruit, mango, calf liver, beef liver, pork, and cow milk. Vitamin C in the form of L-ascorbic acid can also be taken through synthetic sources, in the form of drinks, capsules, and tablets and can be applied to skin in the form of lotions and creams.
