With less humidity in the atmosphere during the winter, your lips are prone to peeling and cracking, much like dry earth, causing pain and irritation.
Here are 5 simple methods to protect your lips:
Avoid Licking Your Lips Too Much: This is a harmful habit. Your saliva contains enzymes that are designed to break down food, so it makes sense that it may also hurt the sensitive skin on your lips.
Remove Lipstick and Apply Butter at Night Before Going To Bed.
Use Lip Balm: The skin of your lips is very thin and becomes dry very quickly. Lip balms help you moisten your lips and to keep moisture locked. This helps in preventing intense drying and cracking, and keeps your lips soft, supple, and hydrated for a longer time.
Treatment with Filler: You can use JUVÉDERM if you need your lips to look supple during the winter or even just to add more volume overall. JUVÉDERM is a gel filler used to smooth out the wrinkles and recontour the lips.
Drink Lots of Water and have Healthy Diet: Drink around 8 glasses of water daily because a well hydrated body improves bodily functions that regulate hydration.
And make sure you eat nutritious food. With the right amount of vitamins and other nutrients, you will have healthy skin that does not dry out as quickly. This helps your lips stay healthier.
