Skincare Revealed: The Truth About Chapped Lips

Chapped lips are a common problem with some easy solutions many haven't tried. That is what Skincare-New's latest article " Skincare Revealed: The Truth About Chapped Lips " is all about.

Chapped lips are often caused by weather damage:

Weather damage is a well-known cause of chapped lips, and includes harsh sunlight, cold temperatures, and wind. A high quality lip balm that contains sunscreen can combat these conditions.

Skincare treatment is actually quite easy for chapped lips once you know what to do about them:

First of all, it is impossible to moisturize dead skin, so exfoliate with a gentle product meant for the lips, such as Philosophy Crisis Intervention, which includes a gentle scrub and a silky moisturizer. A cheaper solution is to apply petroleum jelly, then scrub lips with a toothbrush. Do not exfoliate if lips show signs of bleeding, infection, or pain.

Many typical lip balms found in drugstores contain irritating additives, preservatives, or alcohol. Camphor and menthol are also harsh ingredients. Switch to a natural or alcohol-free product, such as L'Occitane Honey Harvest Body Balm and opt for unscented balms instead of fruity or sweet fragrances to discourage licking.

At nighttime, you can use a heavier product, such as Pevonia Power Repair Youthful Lip Serum. For small cuts in the corners, or painful and infected lips, use a topical antibiotic or hydrocortisone cream.

While your lips are healing, avoid spicy foods, citrus, and alcohol as they will cause further irritation.

According to the Skincare News Team's sources, prevention is important once you solve the initial problem:

Lips are particularly sensitive to environmental conditions because they contain no oil glands to produce moisture. If possible, use a moisturizing barrier on the lips throughout the day, and reapply after eating or drinking. Even lipstick can act as a barrier. Choose a hydrating formula, and apply a moisturizer underneath. If your lips are extremely chapped, skip the lipstick; not only will the color not stick, but the lipstick can dry the lips out (especially matte lipsticks). Choose a tinted lip balm instead.

    I've always wondered what I could do about my chapped lips. I get so many problems in the winter, because where we live it is really dry

    My lips are terrible in the winter, so parched they bleed sometimes. I go through tons of lip balm a year, but it never occurred to me that I needed to exfoliate--duh! From now on I'll remember to exfoliate first and THEN moisturize.

    My lips are awful during winter as well! I hate it and I am still looking for a better lip balm.
