Why They Need Special Care

More often than not, our lips don’t get the same level of attention as our faces do in our daily skincare routines. But unlike the rest of our face, lips lack sebaceous glands, which means they can't produce their own natural oils for hydration. This makes them more prone to dryness, inflammation and increased risk of visible aging/damage, especially during harsh weather conditions or dry climates.

Let’s explore why lip skin is different and how to keep your pout healthy and kissable with Karuna’s NEW Tinted Lip Oils.

What Makes Lip Skin Unique?

Thin and Delicate 

The skin on your lips is much thinner than the skin on your face, making it more vulnerable to external factors and stressors like wind, sun, and free radicals.

No Oil Production 

As mentioned earlier, lips lack sebaceous (aka oil) glands, so they rely on external moisture sources to stay hydrated.

High Cell Turnover

Lips have a faster rate of cell turnover than facial skin. This is good for shedding dead skin cells, but it also means they lose moisture more quickly.


Lips are packed with nerve endings, making them hypersensitive to irritation and discomfort from dryness or cracking.

The Importance of Lip Care

Healthy lips not only look and feel better, but they also play a crucial role in protecting your mouth from harmful bacteria and irritants. Here's why a balancing, ultra-nourishing lip care routine is essential:

Prevents Dryness and Cracking

Regular lip care helps keep lips youthful, hydrated, and supple, preventing painful cracks that lead to damaging side effects.

Soothes Irritation

Dryness and exposure to environmental irritants can cause irritation and inflammation but lip products can help calm and ease their effects.

Protects from Damage 

The delicate skin on your lips is susceptible to sun and free-radical damage, which can lead to premature aging and even skin cancer but lip products packed with defense antioxidants can help in prevention. 

Enhances Appearance

Healthy, hydrated lips look smoother and plumper, enhancing a youthful appearance especially when lip products contain proven anti-aging ingredients like peptides.

Why Tinted Lip Oils
