With winter fast approaching, your soft kissable lips are at risk of turning dry and cracked. Luckily, there are plenty of ways you can prevent this! Read on to learn how.
1. Use A Tea Bag
Black tea, which contains antioxidants, is a great way to help moisten and repair chapped lips. Just drop a bag into a cup of hot water, let it set for a minute or two, then press it against your lips for about thirty seconds. That’s it – just repeat as needed.
2. Don't Lick Your Lips
It sounds odd, but constantly licking chapped lips will only dry them out even more. This is because it only temporarily adds moisture to your lips – when the saliva evaporates, it’s taking any natural oils on your skin with it. You can prevent this by using a moisturizer on your lips instead of licking or biting. Try Climate Control Lip Treatment by Dermlaogica.
Just as you exfoliate your face to eliminate dead skin cells, so should you exfoliate chapped lips. Try Renewal Lip Complex by Dermalogica for a delicious mix of sugar, peppermint, and vanilla. Apply after you brush your teeth, then follow it up with a strong lip balm.
4. Try Olive Oil
If you’re a person, you’ve probably heard at least a little bit about all the different ways olive oil is good for you. Now, you can tack on “makes you a better kisser.” Olive oil’s anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and hydrating properties work wonders on dry skin. Just apply once or twice a day, and pretty soon that special someone in your life won’t be able to get enough of your soft lips.
