I'll bet we all have really dirty lips

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Guss, Apr 28, 2005.


  1. Why don't we ever wash our lips? Aren't they skin too just like everything else on us? I was never taught to wash my lips, and it's not like there is some special lip washing soap. I'll bet that a close up of the human lip would be really gross.

    Actually, odd as it may seem, I always wash them when I brush my teeth.

  5. Wash your lips? Are you serious?

    As if smacking your lips and all that isn't enough?

    What, do you propose little 1" x 1" square lip wipies? A pocket pack? That'd be funny...you could carry it in yer fanny pack.

    Lips come in constant contact with saliva and the tongue and fluids from drinking, as well as receiving more friction than almost any other part of the body from eating, talking, and general use resulting in new skin being grown there all the time. You can't even use the letters B, F, M, P, V, and W without your lips being rubbed against your against your teeth or each other.

    They're probably the cleanest areas of skin on the body.
