Tips for Healthier Lips

Tips for Healthier Lips

Lips are one of the most noticeable parts of the face. When they're cracked or chapped, it can be painful and very hard to ignore. Luckily, there are ways that they can be protected at home.

One of the best ways to protect your lips is by using an SPF lip balm. A good lip balm will moisturize the lips while also providing sun protection. Lips are just as susceptible to sun damage and premature aging as any other area of skin. Look for a lip balm with at least 15 SPF, but the higher it is, the better. Use it several times daily, and especially before going out in the sun. Chapped and cracked lips can also be caused by windburn, so make sure to use lip balm all year. SPF should also be used year-round and not just in the summer.

A full-body approach can help the lips as well as the whole system. For problem lips, try to detoxify your entire system. Often, cracked and chapped lips can be a symptom of high salt intake or even dehydration. To detoxify the system, focus on drinking enough water every day, and eating only fresh, natural, whole ingredients. You should also try to cut sugar and processed foods out of your diet entirely.  

As the weather gets colder, your skin will get drier and that includes your lips. Implement a lip scrub in your weekly routine to get rid of dead skin. Follow up with a lip oil to provide your lips ultimate hydration.

With the use of an SPF lip balm, a proper diet and hydration, and a lip scrub, your lips should reap healthy benefits. You will likely notice your lips and skin getting drier as the temperatures drop.
