Chapped lips? This is how you solve it

You're probably familiar with the pain and irritation of dry and chapped lips. Once you have them, it is often difficult to get rid of them and you are condemned to walk around for a long time with those annoying scabs in the corners of your mouth. And there's always a chance that they'll tear up again when they just seemed to be nearly healed. Here are a few tips to prevent and heal chapped lips.

Vitamin bomb

It is no coincidence that chapped lips often occur when your immune system is compromised. Make sure you get enough vitamins that keep your immunity and skin strong. 

Keep your lips smooth and hydrated

Well-nourished lips are less likely to crack. But what is 'good care'? If you apply a certain well-known lip balm to your lips every day, you may think that you are taking good care of your lips. But in reality you are drying them out. The most famous care brands make extensive use of mineral oil, perfumes and drying ingredients (peppermint is a good example). It gives a nice and greasy feeling for a while, but soon you have to apply more because your lips start to feel dry. So always look at the ingredients list and choose a natural brand without perfumes or mineral oils. This balm, for example, is awesome!

Weather change and dry air

Weather changes and dry air in the house when the heating is turned on can cause dry skin and chapped lips. Nourish your skin extra well when the weather changes and think about air humidification in the house. Constantly licking your lips also causes further dehydration: don't do it!

Restore your skin

Were you unable to prevent chapped lips? Then follow these tips:

  • Don't touch it! Do not pull on scabs! This makes it even worse and the healing process will take even longer
  • Keep the wounds as dry as possible. So don't lick your lips!
  • Apply a balm only with clean hands so that no bacteria can enter the wounds
  • Eat healthy and take extra vitamins B & C
  • Only put perfume-free and natural balms on your lips, without mineral oils
  • A combination of our Nourishing Cream and Multi Balm works wonders for dry lips. Use our Nourishing Cream as an overnight lip mask and the Multi Balm for extra nourishment and a beautiful glow during the day. Beautiful lips assured!
