Chapped lips anyone ?

Having healthy lips in winter, may be a dream come true for many.

The skin on your lips are very thin and has no oil gland to prevent it from chapping. So it is up to us to keep them from cracking.
There are many reasons for those dry nasty lips:
  • Weather change
  • Aging
  • Lip biting
  • Licking your lips is a definite NO!
  • Dehydration
To keep your lips locked with moisture, you need to protect them from the outside to inside.
Drink plenty of Water!

If your diet has low levels of Vitamin B, you are prone to dry lips. So .... eat :
  • Red meat 
  • Skim Milk
  • Swiss Cheese
  • Eggs
  • Tofu
  • etc..
Always keep your lips moisturized by using natural lips balms. Make sure they contain elements such as:
  • Shea Butter 
  • Aloe Vera
  • Glycerin
  • Coconut Oil
  • Jojoba oil
  • Vitamin E
  • Beeswax
  • Vitamin A & D
DON'T LICK your lips. It keeps your lips moisturized for a split second. Once the wind blows, your back to square one.

So keep it nice and kissable ;)
Stay tuned for some home remedies for those dry lips.....
