Lipstick is such a part of makeup without which the entire face makeup is often considered incomplete. Lipstick is one of these products used to enhance beauty. Applying it not only completes the makeup but also gives a different glow to the face.

But do you know that using it daily for a long time can prove to be very harmful for you. Because, most lip glosses and lipsticks contain chemicals like chromium, lead, aluminium, cadmium. In such a situation, using it daily may have serious consequences. In such a situation, let us know the side effects of applying lipstick daily-

Lipstick is harmful not only for lips but also for surrounding skin

According to beauty experts, if lipstick contains more chemicals than required, it is harmful not only for the lips but also for the surrounding skin. Chemicals in lipsticks can cause itching and burning sensation on the lips and also affect the skin around the lips.

Lipstick contains many pigments, preservatives and fragrances, which can make the lips dry. In such a situation, continuous use of lipstick without proper moisturization can cause dryness and cracking of lips.

Some lipsticks may contain ingredients that can be harmful to our health. In such a situation, due to its continuous use, these harmful elements enter our body, due to which the risk of many serious health related problems increases.

Experts believe that you will be surprised to know that continuous use of lipstick also has a bad effect on the health of our brain. Actually, the chemical called lead present in it can cause neural damage i.e. brain related damage. Not only this, lead can also cause problems like weak memory, affected nerve transmission and lack of concentration. Therefore, try to use lipstick sparingly.


Exercise the following precautions to minimize the possible harm due to use of lipstick:

Apply a layer of lip balm with SPF before your lipstick. (Sun Protection Factor or SPF is a rating that tells how much protection a product provides against sunburn. Most lip balms have an SPF of at least 30, which is the minimum recommended amount, but some offer higher protection.)


Use glossier shades more often than darker mattes.


Do not retouch more than 2 times a day.


Take a break from lipsticks whenever possible.


Check the expiry date of your cosmetics.
