As one of the most attractive parts of the face, lips have a huge role in people’s everyday lives. It uniquely identifies people and is an essential part of a person’s smile.

Lips Appreciation Day is about loving your lips and learning better ways of taking care of them throughout your life. Let’s read up on the history of this holiday and see how to celebrate it here at Days of the Year.

History of Lips Appreciation Day

Created by Thomas and Ruth Roy of Wellcat Holiday(s), Lips Appreciation Day is a day all about taking care of your lips and learning about all the fascinating details involving what makes your lips unique.

No one has the same lip impression, lips don’t have sweat glands or oil glands, and has the highest density of nerve endings in comparison to any other area of the body.

Lips also have a sensual appeal to them, as they can be considered an erogenous zone and can emit pheromones that help in choosing a mate. Lip appreciation is about doing nice things for your lips, such as moisturizing them with a lip balm or putting on some lipstick and taking a picture of the lips that make you, you.

Lips Appreciation Day also emphasizes on the importance of taking care of your lips, including using a sunscreen filled lip balm or just lick your lips for consistent moisture.

Because lips do not have sweat glands, lips can be the most susceptible towards dryness, sun damage, and even cancer. Lips are also an essential part of speech, so why not talk away on this day and appreciate the lips that you have.

Appreciating your lips can help build confidence, character, and make you feel special throughout your day, so celebrate this day by loving yourself a little by more each day by starting with your lips.
