Avoid Chapped Lips With These 5 Tips

One of the worst things in Winter is your skin and lips drying out. Chapped lips can be pretty sore and not look too pretty so we’re here to help you avoid it happening this Winter.

1. Stay hydrated

The main reason for your lips being chapped is because they, and you, are dehydrated. Drinking your 8 glasses of water a day will help keep your body hydrated in the Winter – your lips will thank you!

2. Scrub a little

Using an exfoliater to get rid of dry, dead skin on your lips will help to keep them soft and smooth. Try a homemade scrub or else this Mint Julips Lip Scrub from Lush.


3. Don’t lick your lips

We know, it’s hard to resist, but licking your lips will make them far worse. The saliva on your tongue will actually dry them out further so reach for the lip balm instead.
