Our lips are one of our most exposed body parts to the wind, sun, and the cold. Unfortunately, this can result in dry, chapped, or cracked lips, causing pain and discomfort that nobody has time for. Keeping the lips healthy is important because chapping can turn into a cold sore or even an infection. Here are 3 simple tips to keep your lips healthy, no matter the weather!
The skin on the lips is very thin and does not have oil glands like most of the body does. This means it is the most prone to drying out due to external stressors like wind, sun, and cold. To prevent this, it is best to apply moisture regularly. Find a good lip balm that includes ingredients like Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Lanolin, Aloe Vera, and Jojoba oil. These ingredients are excellent for dry, chapped lips.
#2) Protect Lips From the Wind
When you are out in the wind, try wearing a scarf that covers your mouth so that your lips will be protected.
#3) Avoid Licking, Biting, or Rubbing Your Lips
The constant moisture or friction on your lips can lead to excessive dryness and irritation. Even if your lips feel excessively dry, licking them will not add any moisture. If your lips are bothering you, it is best to apply a moisturizing lip balm.
