Say Goodbye To Chapped Lips

Chapped Lips

Soft, smooth lips are ideal when it comes to applying your favorite lip gloss and lipstick. Don’t let chapped lips keep you from that! We’re here to help you understand how you end up with dry chapped lips in the first place, so you can get rid of them and perfect your pout. Knowledge, like a statement lip, is power.

When your smackers are in need of a little TLC try these five soothing tips to avoid chapped lips.

1. Stop licking your lips!

You may think licking your lips offers relief but it actually creates more damage. Not good! That’s because saliva evaporates quickly leaving lips drier than before. You’ll just end up in a vicious lip-licking cycle.

2. Pucker up!

Apply an oil base lip balm containing petroleum or beeswax. You should always reapply often while outdoors and actually before eating.

3. Drink up!

Fluids help prevent or heal lips, which are more common in winter due to dry indoor air.

4. Set up a cool mist humidifier

Set up a cool mist humidifier in your bedroom or office. Your lips will thank you later for this.

5. Make sure not to mistake a painful sore for chapped lips.

If your sore won’t heal you should definitely go see your doc.

If your lips are already feeling super dry and flaky, throwing on a simple chapstick won’t solve your problem. Try out a good lip scrub or a treatment lip balm, which will work harder to combat those dry, pesky flakes. Also, try patting a couple of drops of a serum like SLMD’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum directly onto clean lips. It can offer benefits in seconds, either as a hydrating mask or a primer before applying other lip products.
