lip licking is harmful to skin

Experts say that licking your lips with your tongue in the dry season will cause two problems. First, it will cause lip inflammation. When you lick your lips with your tongue, you will leave saliva on your lips. Saliva contains a variety of enzymes that can help digestion, including two enzymes, one called amylase and the other called maltase, which can cause inflammation of the lip corner, because the two enzymes remaining on the lip are equivalent to “digesting the skin”.

Another consequence of lip licking is the more common irritating dermatitis, which is also caused by saliva. Experts explained that it is actually different from people’s imagination. Licking the lips does not make them moist.

Because when you lick your lips with your tongue, the moisture will evaporate, and when it evaporates, it will take away the moisture that is already tense on your lips, making your lips feel more dry.
