Do you know that the skin on our lips is like the skin around the eye area? It is different from the different part of our skin because it doesn’t have oil glands. This is why our lips get dry and why is it so difficult to tackle the peeling and cracked condition.
Say No To Lip Licking
Don’t lick your lips, this is because lip licking can cause a form of dermatitis which commonly referred to as inflamed, sore, and extremely chapped lips. Even if you don’t consider your lip licking excessive, harsh weather conditions like harsh winds and the sun’s drying rays will cause dry lips too.
Use A Straw
As alcoholic beverages and coffee will dehydrate the skin, it is better not to let artificial ingredients from food or beverage to touch your lips. The skin on our lips is way more delicate than the skin on your face and body, thus, when the chemicals touch the lips, it will cause our lips to dehydrate faster.
Find A Soothing Lip Balm
As we can see in the market, there is lip balm that is made by petroleum and castor oil. If our lips are soft, smooth and supple, it is good to use petroleum infused lip balm, however, it is not ideal if they’re chapped. Try to look for a lip balm that is loaded with skin nourishing vitamins, minerals and essential oils.
