At any time of the year, the skin of the lips suffers from climatic phenomena - from the harsh wind, low temperatures in autumn and winter, from the scorching sun rays in summer. Lack of proper care leads to the fact that the lips become dry, often crack, and painful cracks cause a lot of trouble.
Lips always need protection - a thick layer of oily lipstick with a high content of wax, vitamins and nutrients will protect thin skin from any seasonal manifestations. Adequate hydration must be provided from the inside as well - a sufficient amount of fluid will help maintain the water balance in the body and will have a positive effect on the condition of the lips. You cannot lick your lips, especially on the street - this way they are not moisturized, but only weathered faster. Try to get rid of the bad habit of biting your lips in moments of nervous tension or thought.
Lack of vitamins is manifested by painful cracks in the corners of the mouth and dry lips. Eliminate the manifestations of vitamin deficiency by enriching the diet with foods high in vitamin B, take complex supplements.
Make nourishing masks regularly - with honey, dairy products, various oils. Dry skin of the lips is well softened by a mask of cottage cheese and carrots in equal proportions. Linseed oil nourishes and moisturizes lips, so it will help solve the problem of dryness - lubricate your lips with oil at night for two weeks. The avocado pulp is excellent for moisturizing the skin of the lips, so apply compresses once a week. A good result is obtained by using fatty creams with panthenol and herbal supplements - lubricate your lips every evening.
If your lips are covered with flaky crusts, then you do not need to tear them off or bite them off - you can damage the skin. Dampen a piece of cotton with strong tea leaves and apply it to your lips for a while. The tea leaves will soften the skin and can be removed with gentle massage movements using a clean, soft-bristled toothbrush.
Lipsticks with a firmness effect and toothpastes with a high fluoride content dry out your lips, so give them up for a while. If you use active anti-aging creams, balms and masks for the skin of the face, be careful not to get the composition on the skin of the lips.
