Thanks to our lips, we can talk, laugh, and kiss, so we can not ignore their care. Especially cold winter often causes our lips to fall apart in the blood and the pains blow out the corners. Their skin can not provide food or hydrate oneself, so they are completely dependent on the external care we offer.
