- Stay hydrated:
Water is the most important factors in keeping lips and skin healthy. The most common causes of dry chapped lips are not drinking enough water.
- Exfoliate your lips:
Using a damp washcloth or a toothbrush to gently rub off any dead or dry skin in the morning is a great way to exfoliate your lips. This will give you a boost of circulation in your lips.
- Remove makeup before going to sleep:
Never sleep with a full face of makeup. Sleeping in makeup isn’t good for your skin or lips. Even if there is no visible lipstick and or product on your lips, give your lips a gentle swipe with a makeup-removing wipe before calling it a night.
- Limit Exposure to unnecessary toxins:
Polluted air, smoke, and chemicals are things that can cause lips to look dark and create wrinkles. Try to avoid smoking cigarettes and secondhand smoke to help improve the look and feel of your lips.
- Use natural quality lip products:
Not all lip products are the same. Lip produce that contain ingredients such as camphor, can dry out you lips leaving lips chapped. Shop for lip gloss and lip balms that contains coconut oil, coca butter, caster oil, and shea butter. These ingredients help keep lips moisturized and gives lip a natural barrier of protection from heat and pollution.
