What is the Best Care for Lips?

Let us be honest, Lip Care is often not given much weight as facial skin care, and general body skin care by most skin care brands. You will easily find ten general skin care articles before you find one about lip care, even though lips are among the most looked-at feature when people look at us. Perhaps if we understood the structure of the skin on the lips, and just how simple it is to take care of them with some useful tips, we will do better, and our lips will thank us!

5 ways to take care of your lips

The skin on our lips is thinner and more delicate than the rest of the body. Lips do not have the protective outer layer that the rest of our skin does. Not only that, they also do not contain oil and sweat glands to keep themselves moisturized – that is up to us! When we get to cooler seasons, it is easier for our lips to get dry faster, and chap too. Chilly air from outside, dry heated air from inside — all conspire to make the lips dry and tight. In seasons when there’s extreme heat or wind, the lips become more susceptible to dryness, and a vulnerable target for chapping. You might have also observed for yourself that licking the lips to moisturize does not work. The saliva dries out fast, leaving them feeling drier than before.

It seems like an uphill task to properly take care of our lips. However, you can incorporate this simple tip to your daily grooming activities to help you start a journey to healthier lips.

  1. Exfoliate the lips – This is a vital step to eliminate dry, and flaky skin that builds up on the lips. By doing this, you will help restore softness, smoothnessand shine on the lips. Simply us a wet toothbrush, or a lip scrub. Wet your lips first, gently apply the exfoliator of choice/brush your lips with a wet toothbrush in gentle strokes to remove dry flaky skin. Do this once a week or maximum 2 times a week. Over exfoliating or using too much force can damage lips.
  2. Hydrate – Drink lots of water to keep your lips (and the rest of your skin) from drying out.
  3. Do not Lick Your Lips – Avoid licking your lips, as it saps moisture from the lips. Do not worry, the more you remind yourself not to do this, you will eventually learn.
  4. Moisturize – Use Organic Lip Balms that are fortified with great ingredients meant to help with adding and locking in moisture, protecting the lips from harmful UV Rays, promoting soft and supple lips with healthy skin.
