Dry Lips? Read This

Having dry lips can really make one uncomfortable and that kept me thinking about what the causes are. I came to find out the causes of dry lips which includes: Dehydration, constant licking of lips, vitamin
deficiency, allergic reaction,
smoking, medical conditions and sun
exposure.
One good way to manage dry lips is the regular use of  lip
balm. This will provide instant relief, but in
most of the cases does not provide a long term
solution.
Useful Tips
(1) Use a lip balm with sunscreen before
stepping out.
(2) Avoid peeling the dead dry skin from the
lips (some people just cant keep their hands the lips especially when its dry).
(3) Water Water Water stay hydrated by drinking lots of water.
(4) Use a soft toothbrush to brush your lips to get rid of the
dead cells that will cause more drying and flaking.
(5) Licking and biting of your lips causes more chapping.
(6) Foods rich in Vitamin A should be
included in the diet.
(7)Apply lip balm every night before
sleeping, pure shea butter helps too.
Ways Of Managing Dry Lips
Cucumber
Cucumber can perform wonders on your lips as
I have shared before and it will help you rid of
dry lips. It also has skin lightening properties
and helps remove tan. So it lightens your lips
by reducing the dark patches on them. Slice a
cucumber and rub them gently on the lips. Just
leave it for 15 minutes and wash off with plain
water. This would also make your lips soft and
supple.
Honey
Honey is a great moisturizer that also has
healing and antibacterial properties as I also
have shared earlier and you can use it to treat
dry lips. Just apply pure organic honey on your
dry lips several times a day. You can also make
a paste of honey and glycerin and apply it
before going to bed to enjoy softer lips in the
morning.
Sugar scrub
Like I have also shared before, sugar scrub is a
very good exfoliating agent and it will help you
remove dry dead cells from your skin . Just
apply it in the night before you sleep. Do this
for several days and get good results.
Olive oil
Olive oil is the best natural moisturizer and
lubricant. The fatty acids in olive oil help cure
dry lips, making them soft and supple. Apply
olive twice a day for best results.
Use any of these methods to leave your lips
soft and supple like a child.
