More About Lip Balms
Winter extremes and summer sun can damage the sensitive skin of your lips, leaving them dry, chapped and flaky. Petroleum based lip balms provide a quick fix for dry chapped lips by simply trapping moisture. This prevents the thin lip skin from breathing and ultimately causes greater irritation.
It is important to pamper and protect this particularly sensitive skin.
- Moisturize throughout the day with a natural lip balm
- If your lips feel dry and flaky exfoliate with a simple lip scrub. I mix 1 tablespoon brown sugar and enough honey to create paste. Gently massage the paste into lips and allow it to sit for a minute or two. Gently rinse with warm water and apply a lip balm.
- Avoid touching or licking your lips
- Drink plenty of water
