6 Tips to Protect Your Lips from the Cold


It’s cold again. And your lips may be prone to being too dry causing for it to chap. With that, we have researched and look for ways on how you can prevent chap lips.

Below is an excerpt of an article that shares 6 tips to keep your lips smooth and lovely all winter long:

* Don’t lick your lips. 

When your lips are dry, it’s natural to want to lick them to make them moist. But licking your lips actually has the opposite effect.

* Use a lip balm that is ointment-based.  This will lock in the moisture and help to heal cracks and splits in the skin.

* Avoid lip balms containing camphor, eucalyptus and menthol. 

These substances actually dry out your lips and make the problem worse.

* Avoid brushing or rubbing your lips when they are flaky or peeling.
It’s better not to scrub your lips or pick the peeling skin off with your teeth or your fingers.

* Treat cracks right away.
If you let them go, they can become worse and possibly get infected or lead to a cold sore.

* At night, apply lip balm before you go to bed.
Many people sleep with their mouths open. Eight hours of breathing in and out through your mouth can dry your lips.
