Bid Adieu to Chapped Lips

Lips are the most vulnerable part that will first start showing the symptoms of harsh winters. Dry and chapped lips are a common sight during winters but cracked lips are even more painful. This year prevent your lips from cracking which deters you from smiling the way you want by following these simple tips.

Tips to Protect Lips in Winters:

1)Β Cream up:– Moisture lips regularly and always opt for cream based lip balms which will soothe chapped lips. Avoid glosses or long wear lip colors that may have an alcohol base and dry out lips even more. Matte finish lip colors or lip liners also add to dryness and gives a dry feel to the lips. Go for moisturising lip colors or lipsticks rich in vitamin E which will keep pouts moisturized.

2) No Licking:- Avoid licking your lips as this tends to dry them out. Stay away from flavored lip balms that may invite you to lick your lips. Go for flavorless lip balms.

3)Β Don’t peel:- If you have flaky skin on your lips, do not rip the skin off. It will cause soreness and possibly bleeding which will only worsen the situation.

4) Remove Makeup :- Make sure to remove all kinds of makeup, lip staining lip colors or tinted lip balms and apply a colorless moisturising lip balm and leave it overnight to maintain the soft pouts.

    I never payed enough attention to notice lipliners are drying lips out, I found out about a month ago so I think I’m not the only uninformed one:) I can say using chapsticks helped me a lot, however my lips are so dry that I actually need to use something moisturising every other hour :c

      You are right Savannah.. lip liners can be very drying as they are made to last long on lips so the formula cling to the skin and sucks in moisture making them look dry and parched.. πŸ™

      In winters my lips feel duper dry too.. I have to keep a lip balm handy too.. πŸ™‚

    Suffered from the same prob.. Harsh winters and less attention make them chapped and dry πŸ™ ..Then found a way out of those poor lips.. Regularly applying a good moisturizer(boroplus or borolin) before applying any lip color even matte and before goine to bed.. And it works very nicely.. πŸ™‚ πŸ˜€
    Happy and pretty lips πŸ™‚
