HOW DO DRY OR CHAPPED LIPS OCCUR?
The skin on the lips is significantly thinner than the skin of the face. Besides, there are no sebum glands here, which supply the skin with fat and keep it supple. As a result, the lips dry out much faster than, for example, the skin on the face. Above all, freezing temperatures in the cold season and a change between dry heating air and cold winter air put the sensitive lip skin on. But UV radiation in summer also causes the skin to become dry and brittle. Also, many men and women often wet their lips with their tongues. This brings short-term relief to chapped lips, but it leads to the skin drying out in the long run.
TIPS FOR SMOOTH LIPS
The lips’ care is often neglected, while the skin on the face and body is diligently peeled and creamed. However, what is true of the face and body is also true of the lips. For smooth and beautiful lips, lip care should be optimally tailored to sensitive skin needs and offer protection against daily stress.
REMOVE DRY SKIN FLAKES.
Before you care for your lips with a lip balm stick, you should first treat them to a lip peeling. The lip peeling removes dead skin cells, and the lips immediately appear softer. You don’t necessarily need a special lip scrub for the peeling. With honey and sugar, you can make a lip peeling yourself in no time at all. To do this, mix a spoonful of honey with a spoonful of sugar to form a homogeneous mass and use it to peel your lips.
