Do you experience chapped lips once the temperatures start getting cooler? Most people do, so we rush to the nearest drug store, buy some type of balm for our lips, and hope they heal up soon. But did you know, you can actually prevent chapped lips before they start? Yep, it’s true! So today, I want to share with you three tips to keep your lips from chapping so you can carry on with one less thing to worry about.
How to Prevent Chapped Lips
- Stop licking your lips. I know it’s tempting, especially when they feel dry. However, licking your lips only makes things worse. When the saliva on your lips dries, it takes with it any naturally occurring oils, leaving your lips more dry than when you started.
- Use a lip exfoliator. I’m a fan of sweets (moreso than I thought), so I particularly like a naturally-based sugar scrub with shea butter. It melts into your lips and buffs away dry cells and rejuvenates skin, leaving soft, supple lips. It’s like a spa treatment for your lips that tastes delicious!
- Hydrate with oils. Now, I’m not talking about rubbing olive oil on your lips because that can be messy. So, you’ll want to use a product that combines the preventing power of natural oils, such as sunflower seed, jojoba, prickly ear, and coconut oils. Using a legit lip treatment helps you prevent chapped lips before they start, as opposed to reacting once it’s too late.
PRO TIP: Use the lip exfoliator and lip treatment at night before bed.
This allows plenty of time for the oils to work their magic, so you wake up to soft, smooth lips.
