Chapped Lips

January 03, 2013

Here is a QUESTION from one of my FRESH FACED BEAUTIES...

Q: Ugh... Why are my lips so chapped and what can I do to fix it? 

A: Sometimes something as simple as licking our lips too many times can cause are lips to get chapped, because we get rid of the natural thin layer of oil on the surface. Oh and believe it or not you don’t have to be out in the cold to get chapped lips. When you crank up the heat during cold weather, the air in your home tends to become very dry. Chapped lips could also mean you may not be drinking enough water.

•             How can you protect your lips from the elements? Here is my TOP 3 MUST HAVES that will surely protect your lips in addition to having them feeling smooth and moist.

•             What are some tips to keep your lips from chapping? Trust me honey, I know this is hard but try NOT to lick your lips, it will just make it worst. As I stated before during cold winter months our homes are nice and toasty so keep a humidifier in your room and keep it on during our much needed beauty sleep. Keep something on your lips at all times, don’t give them a chance to feel dry. Oh and last but not least, dink lots of water.

Well as always I hope this helps...
