I’m pretty sure that most of you know that cold weather has a negative effect on our skin and while most of us put a lot of effort to hydrate their faces and bodies, many forget to take care of their lips. In this article I will give you advice how to take care of your lips and make them softer and tender.
Dryness is problem number one for our lips. The skin of the lips can be easily hurt and becomes rough, and girls with such lips are not attractive at all. You can buy a simple toothbrush and brush your lips every morning. This will remove the dead cells, stimulate the blood circulation and will make your lips extremely attractive. Don’t forget to put some balsam after the procedure.
As with all skin problems, dryness around the mouth is due to dehydration. Drink as much water as possible during the day in order to hydrate your organism, skin and lips.
Dry skin as well as the skin of the lips will get better if you take a lot of vitamins and minerals. Omega 3 is a very good variant. Vitamin A can also help you but only in the right quantities. Consult your pharmacist about these products and forget about dry lips.
Balsam instead of gloss:
Many people mistake balsam and gloss which can lead to negative effects for your lips. Balsam is made to feed up and heal your lips by making them soft and elastic. Gloss is just cosmetics and doesn’t feed up your lips which can make them very dry. Usually, glosses have oily base while balsams have silk structure and quite often contain vitamins.
Lipstick looks terrible on dry lips, so if you have cracked lips don’t use lipstick. If you can’t avoid using lipstick and your lips don’t look perfect, try to find lipstick and balsam in one product. There are a lot of these products on the market right now. They will help you give color to your lips and feed them up in the same time.
If your lips are always dry maybe you have to look for the reason in your eating habits. Consume foods rich of sulfur such as eggs, garlic and asparagus – they will make the skin of your lips fresh. Vitamins A, B and C will also help your lips. Eat a lot of forest fruit, carrots, green salads and yoghurt and feed up not only your lips but also your skin.
If whatever you do, your lips stay dry it would be best to consult a doctor. Dry skin of your lips may be a symptom of diseases such as anemia or it could be a sign for a complex infection.
