Autumn is here and there is chill in the air. Wearing a mask hides your lips, but it won’t keep them healthy as harsh winter weather takes a toil.
“It’s true, the use of masks can leave our lips dry. This winter say hi to hydration and kiss your chapped lips goodbye,” shares celebrity makeup artist Troy Lazaris.
Drink plenty of water
Summer heat can be rough and dehydrating, but winter and cold can be just as brutal on luscious lips. Doctors recommend 6-8 glasses of water a day. Not only for healthy lips, water boosts energy by delivering important nutrients to all of your cells, especially muscle cells. It also helps weight loss by making you feel full longer, preventing additional calories. And, helps your body naturally detoxify.
Don’t peel or bite off dry skin
Peeling that annoying flap only makes your chapped lips worse. As tempting as it is to quickly remove the offense flakes, it causes bleeding and pain along with slowing the healing process. Hands off should be the right motto.
Only use products with nourishing ingredients
According to Glamour, lips are the second most important facial feature, so show them some TLC. After the eyes, most people focus on the lips, and it important to keep them nourished with products that add to their natural help.
