4 Ways to Love Your Lips

May 16, 2017 | Treatments | 0 comments

Dry, chapped lips can happen in any season.  The extremes are from a little more pink to cracked and bleeding.  Here are 4 simple things you can do to prevent unattractive, chapped lips.

#1. Never lick your lips.  It will make the problem worse because silva draws moisture out of the lips as it evaporates.

#2. Chapped lips are a symptom of dehydration. Drink plenty of water to hydrate your lips from the inside out.

#3. Use lip balms that moisturize and stay on your lips several times a day.

You can look for lip balms that have sunscreens in them and in a pinch you can also apply sunscreen to your lips.

#4. Cover your face.  Floppy hats for winter or summer shield your lips from UV rays.  Wrap your scarf around your mouth on windy days to prevent more moisture loss.

Turn these tips into daily habits to keep your lips healthy and hydrated.
