Lip care is often the most overlooked part of skincare regimens. If you want to break free from the vicious cycle of dry, chapped, flaky and even bleeding lips, you must invest in a thorough lip care routine for winter. We can tell you how.
Licking the lips is the most natural response to countering that feeling of dryness. However, this habit is counterproductive. Saliva not only dries up the lips more quickly, but also the enzymes meant to aid with breaking down of food present in the saliva can also irritate the delicate skin of the lips.
Avoid Brushing or Scrubbing Your Lips
Typically, scrubbing helps with the removal of dead skin cells, and using a toothbrush lightly on the lips is a well-known DIY scrubbing technique. A lot of people resort to this technique, thinking it’ll help them get rid of the chapped and dry layer of cells. However, this only deepens the cracks on the skin, and makes it even more prone to chafing.
