Simple Tips to Get Rid of Chapped Lips

Chapped lips are a nuisance.I have heard some people complain about them only in the winters but sadly for me, I have very dry lips and the problem of chapped lips persist all round the year.

I am sharing some quick tips to manage chapped lips. But, please remember they are not magic tips. These have to be incorporated in your daily regime to get the best results.

1. Drink Water

The most important tip is to drink loads of water during the day. This one is not just good for your lips and skin but is great for your overall health.

2. Exfoliate your lips well
There are a lot of lip scrubs available in the market which can give you easy results. You can also make one easily at home with natural ingredients with sugar and honey. mix them together and rub them on your lips for some time in circular motion. But remember not to be too rough on your lips as the skin is extremely delicate.

3. Moisturize your lips well

 Use natural oils like almond oil, olive oil or coconut oil to moisturize your lips well. Do this whenever you are indoors and do not intend to consume anything for a few hours.

4. Use Lip Balms

Use lip balms with SPF whenever you are stepping out. Tinted lip balms work wonders when you do not want to wear too much makeup and give your lips the much-needed protection.

Some of the best lip balms available in the market today are Himalaya Herbals Lip care Range, Maybelline Baby Lips Range / Candy Wow Range and  VLCC lip care range

5. Lip balms before applying lipsticks

Matte Lipsticks have a drying effect on your already dry lips and some lipsticks easily settles down in between the creases. Therefore, always use a lip balm before applying a matte lipstick.

6. Boroline at night

 I avoid using petroleum jelly on my lips as they have harmful effects. But the one thing that works the best is the good old Boroline. The new improved variety of the brand is non-sticky. I usually leave it overnight. In the morning, my lips feel soft and the dry skin is easy to exfoliate then. I use a soft toothbrush to remove all the dry flakes.

Keep the following things in mind:

1. Never lick your lips though you will be tempted to do so all the time. They provide temporary relief from dry lips but actually make the lips drier

2. Never pick your dry skin as this may be painful and lead to bleeding

Hope this article helps. In case you use some magical trick to get rid of dry lips, please share with the readers here. I will love to try them out myself.
