Have you ever wondered why your lips are red or similar in color? We use them every day. For different kinds of work. But have you ever tried to handle these like any other part of the body.
Why are they so fragile? Why do they dry up? Why do they burst? Why did humans develop in such a way that their lips became when birds, turtles were not all of them? Noel Cameron, a professor of human biology at the University of Loboro in England, said the biggest use of the lip is to help with food, breathing and speaking.
They are extremely sensitive and fragile. According to Jamaika Hospital, there are 10 million fine tube ends attached inside the lips. So they become active by touching. Change the temperature and humidity to dry up.
Noel Cameron said that the skin of the lips acts as a bridge between the outer skin of the face and the mucous membrane inside the mouth. The mucous membrane is a large part of the sensory cortex of the brain. So it’s extremely sensitive. Because of this, the lips are able to move their and surrounding muscles differently.
Cameron said that five muscles work to move the lip upwards, while four muscles work to move it downwards. Because of this movement, a person can speak. Even when a person calls the letters of the vowel, the movement of his lips is in this way. Or in speaking some consonants to the letters.
For example, to speak words with letters P, you need to move both lips. While the lips and teeth have to be used to speak words starting with the letter F. Noel Cameron says it will be extremely difficult for you to talk without moving your lips. You won’t be able to speak many letters and words.
You try to speak the letter M, W or B without moving your lips. It is not possible to speak these letters without moving the lips. If you will speak with a lot of effort then the pronunciation will be wrong. But now the question arises, why do lips look like this? Why look red or of his family’s colors. Especially when they are compared to other organs on the face.
The skin of the lips is made up of three to five layers of cells. It is thinner than the skin of the body. So very thin from the skin of the face, the skin of the face has 16 layers of cells mounted on it. The skin of the lip is light colored. It has a low number of melanocytes. The millenocytes contain melanin pigments, which give color to the skin. Because of these, the skin gets a red or pink color.
Noel Cameron says that the appearance of dark skin is not very important. But the skin of the lip is lighter, so its pigmentation is more visible. He looks red. A big reason behind this is also that behind the light skin there are millions of blood vessels, which are red in color. She also shows her lips red.
The skin of the lips is extremely light, without hair and without sweat glands. So it is more fragile, quickly drying and bursting. They do not have the rest of the body’s skin on top of them such as sweat and oil glands. Which maintains the smoothness of the skin. Keep pathogens away. Maintains the balance of temperature.
So the lips dry quickly and burst quickly. Apart from the lips, hair does not grow on the palms and toes, because they work in a more efficient way without them. Lips are most commonly used in kissing (kiss) in addition to speaking, eating and breathing. The lips come into the stimulating organs of the body. They attract people to each other.
