4 Tips to Protect Your Lips from Being Chapped

pink lipsThere’s a variety of reasons our lips get chapped, causing them sting, burn, chafe and hurt. Here are a few tips for prevention and protection, to keep our lips looking and feeling beautiful at all times!

Lip facts:

The surface layer of skin on our lips is a little thinner than the rest of our face.

The skin on our lips does not contain sebaceous glands, which produce natural oil.

So, when our lips are exposed to windy weather, and as we lick them and they dry repeatedly, they are going to get chapped very quickly.

How to protect your lips:

  1. Exfoliate twice a week. Using a natural oil and sugar scrub helps to move along the old skin cells that build up. This will allow living cells to be prominent and all set to absorb the nutrients and moisture from your Lip Cream.
  2. Use a nutrient rich Lip Cream several times a day, that nourishes your lips, and keeps the tissue healthy.
  3. Your toothpaste and Lip Color should be free from non-toxic or irritating ingredients.
  4. Apply your Lip Cream before your go to sleep at night.

Now you can smile often with those “purty” lips!
