National Lip Appreciation Day (March 16) – a day for appreciating lips of all kinds. This holiday was specifically created by Thomas and Ruth Roy of Wellcat Holiday. The observation of this holiday comes along with some interesting facts about lips, including one that spreads awareness of the sensitivity and uniqueness of lips. It is said that the tissue around the lips is opaque yet appears pink. This is because lips only have three to six layers of skin, while other skin on the body contains sixteen layers.
This day was made for not only celebrating lips, but for also learning to treat and take care of lips. This includes utilizing sunscreen and keeping lips moisturized and healthy. Many choose to celebrate this day by buying lip products in a new shade or color, while others partake by treating themselves to lip filler or lip tinting. This special day can also be a fun way for the spa to discount lip treatments, including lip masks, scrubs, and injections, if offered. It can also be a good way to sell lip makeup and sunscreen balms if sold in the spa. Use #lipsappreciationday to let friends and clients know about this unique day.
