The temperatures are going downhill and there is significantly less moisture in the air. Your skin and particularly your lips start losing moisture and tend to get dry, itchy and chapped. There could be a number of reasons behind this but once you get to know the triggers, you can use various approaches to keep them moist, hydrated and super soft. Here are some of the ways you can take care of them.
#1 Exfoliate: Like the skin on your face, your lips also need dead skin removal and a bit of exfoliation. When your lips are chapped, they can feel rough and start to peel. Gentle exfoliation and scrubbing that polishes and smoothes your lips while nourishing them.
#2 Apply Lip Balm: Make sure you apply lip balm every night as soon as you start experiencing dry lips. The balm should include natural ingredients like shea butter, Vitamin E, marula oil, beeswax, raspberry oil and almond oil which nourish and moisturize your lips and heal the dryness.
#3 Hydrate: Hydration is key! Especially in winter when the air is really dry, it essential to keep yourself hydrated inside out. Drink plenty of water and warm fluids to nourish and hydrate yourself.
#4 Avoid Licking your Lips: The skin on your lips is thinner and more delicate and hence is more prone to damage. When you experience dryness on your lips, you feel like licking your lips so that they will be moisturized, but this is far from the truth. Use a lip moisturizer instead.
#5 Regular Care: If you are experiencing dry lips frequently, it’s time to establish a care routine to keep your pout soft and healthy. Try to avoid makeup for a few days and keep your lips to let them breathe.
These are the few tips which can help you keep your lips moisturized and soft. To maintain this softness, follow the above points and flaunt those baby soft lips!
