How to treat dry and chapped lips
Dehydration often shows up on your lips, drink 2-3 litres of water a day to stay hydrated. This will prevent dry skin in general.
–Exfoliate the lips
Chapped lips are covered in a layer of dry skin that can prevent healing ingredients in lip balms from reaching the right area. Gently rub your lips with a homemade mixture of coconut oil and sugar to exfoliate away the dry skin.
–Don’t lick your lips
Avoid licking your lips as much as possible to stop saliva from drying them out. Use a lip balm instead to heal chapped lips and keep your lips hydrated.
–Use lip balm
Applying lip balm or ointment will help to protect your skin from the environment and lock in moisture. Look for a gentle lip balm that contains natural moisturising ingredients such as:
- Vitamin E
- Shea Butter
