One of winter’s (unwanted) gifts is the problem of dry, chapped lips that just won’t quit, and make life difficult for us. But you don’t need to endure chapped lips all winter long anymore, because we have a list of easy-to-do remedies that will turn your dry lips to smooth, soft and naturally pink in no time at all!
Massage – Get the blood-circulation going by massaging your lips daily, using ghee or honey. Honey is great for the lips and a few days of a minute long massage will leave your lips soft and pink.
Exfoliate – Removing the layer of dry, dead skin from our lips is extremely important. Exfoliate once a week with a scrub of salt and olive oil mixed together or a soft-bristled toothbrush with some toothpaste on it to get rid of the dead skin on your lips.
Moisturize – Moisturize your lips constantly with your lip balm of choice and apply some petroleum jelly before going to bed each night. You’ll wake up to soft, smooth lips.
Additionally, drink lots and lots of water daily. We cannot stress this enough – keeping your body hydrated is very important during the harsh winters. Also, avoid chewing or licking your lips to make them less dry. That will only make it worse and lips will dry out faster. Make a conscious effort to get over the oral fixation.
