Struggling with perpetually cracked or painfully dry lips? Its annoying and can feel unattainable to have healthy lips, but we have some tips to help you out! Here’s a quick guide to getting healthy and hydrated lips for good!
Dry, cracked, and flaking lips are a common winter ailment. Never fear; thanks to ManukaRx Lip Balm, healthy and happy lips are only a few steps away.
How to Get Healthy and Hydrated Lips
- Lip balm is a must during winter - the cool, dry air draws moisture from lips, leaving them chapped and dry. As tempting as it is, don’t chew on them or peel off flaking skin as it will leave lips at risk of infection. Licking them will also dry them out further and can increase irritation. Dry, chapped lips are also a sign of dehydration, so drink up!
- Choose lipstick carefully, and don’t forget your lips when removing makeup. While matte lipsticks are long-lasting and on-trend, they tend to leave lips parched. Look for lipsticks with hydrating base ingredients, like shea butter, cocoa butter and coconut oil. Applying a lip primer or balm before the lippy will also help keep them hydrated.
- While using a balm will help to keep lips happy and healthy, take a moment to have a closer look at your cracked lips. Sometimes a small change can be an indication that something else is going on. Discoloured lips (lighter or darker than usual), cracked corners and tenderness may hint at a more significant issue, so if you spot something unusual, seek advice from a medical professional. Other ailments such as cold sores also need additional treatment, so don’t leave them be.
- Make lip-care part of your daily skincare routine. Exfoliate twice a week, and apply a balm before bed. The combination of a homemade scrub (like this one) and the active natural ingredients in ManukaRx Lip Balm will leave lips soft and smooth.
