How to Remedy Chapped Lips This Winter
1. Scrub your lips once a week
Exfoliating is good way to remove dry, dead or chapped skin cells. When you do this, it gives your lips a fresh new look and feeling.
2. Moisturizing Lips for Dry lips
It may make your lips feel better temporarily, but you’ll be making matters worse. Licking your lips has the same drying effect as constantly washing your hands; the repeated exposure to water actually robs moisture from the skin, causing it to become dry.
Aloe vera has healing properties and can also be used to cure chapped lips. If you have an aloe vera plant, you can simple pluck a leaf and spread its juice over your lips. Aloe vera gel also helps beat chapped lips.
4.Screen out the sun.
The sun’s ultraviolet rays can damage and dry the sensitive skin on your lips in the same way they can harm the skin on other parts of your body. Indeed, the lips are a common site for skin cancer, since they don’t contain melanin, a pigment (coloring) that helps protect skin from ultraviolet rays. Certain skin cancers that appear on the lips may be more serious and more likely to spread, too, so if you’ll be out in the sun, use a lip balm that contains sunscreen. Choose a product that has an SPF (sun protection factor) of 15 or higher.
Rose petals are also an important ingredient that can be used to keep your lips moisturised. Wash a few rose petals and soak them in milk or glycerin for a couple of hours. Squash the rose petals until they form a thick paste and then apply this paste on your chapped lips two or three times a day. You can also use it before going to bed for quicker results.
Honey is a natural moisturising agent and is one of the best ingredients for curing dry skin as well as chapped lips. You can use honey directly on your lips two or three times a day, or mix honey and glycerin and apply it on your lips before going to bed.
