Radiant Lips: Big River Silk Skincare;

Your lips are pretty important, enabling you communicate, from smiles to kisses. So Dermatologists like me spend a lot of time working to keep our patients’ lips in tip-top shape. Fillers and Botox are options for some, but simpler strategies include GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream and HypoShea™ Moisturizer Cream, from Big River Silk™ Skincare, of which I am President. Big River designs, manufactures, and distributes organic skincare products to that have been in use in Tennessee for over 30 years.

Here are several of my key “Simple Tips for Resilient Lips:”

First, definitely protect your lips from the sun. Many lip balms and sunscreens are effective, but a personal favorite is Vanicream® Sunscreen Sport SPF 35, being fragrance-free and propylene glycol-free. (4 oz: $17.95).

Second, protect your lips from dryness. For your lips to remain supple, they need moisturizer! One appealing option is HypoShea™ Moisturizer Cream, a blend of Refined Shea Butter, and some of the purest natural water in the United States, from the Memphis Sands. HypoShea is fragrance-free, and it’s thick enough that it only needs to be applied one to three times daily to be effective. (1 oz: $12.95/2 oz: $18.95/8 oz: $39.95.)

Thirdly, we distribute a really effective ointment for lips: Vanicream Moisturizing Ointment (2.5 oz: $11.95). This is a clear fragrance-free ointment which slips smoothly onto your lips, manufactured by Pharmaceutical Specialties.

Fourthly, we carry a great compounded cream called GlycoShea™ Facial&Neck Cream that can be used on the skin around the lips as an anti-wrinkle cream, smoothing out the skin, due to its special AHA (Alpha-Hydroxy Acid) ingredient: Glycolic Acid (GA). GA is a natural ingredient originally discovered in sugarcane and pineapple. We blend this Glycolic Acid with Refined Shea Butter and some of the purest natural water in the United States, from the Memphis Sands, and the results is GlycoShea Facial&Neck Cream. Our logo is SCIENCE SIMPLIFYING SKINCARE™, so GlycoShea is free of perfumes, dyes, sulfates, propylene glycol, and parabens (1 oz: $39.95/2 oz: $59.95/8 oz: $175.95).
