Winter tends to bring dryness, making the skin on lips susceptible to chapping and dead skin cells due to underdevelopment of sebaceous glands and sweat glands.
Some skin cells removed by hand may fall off naturally, since it could cause infection by bacteria. People are advised against licking their lips since it could exacerbate dryness of the lip, worsening its conditions.
When lips get cold sores and are chapped, people are advised to give keen attention to such conditions, which take time to get back to normal.
Following is a look at how to manage the skin of the lip, which tends to be too dry at this time of year.
First, it is important to hydrate the body by drinking frequently, at least 1.5 liters of water per day. Hydration is one of the keys to moisturizing not only the lip, but also general moisture care.
It is also important to clean the kip meticulously with a remover for exclusive use of cleansing the lip area from cosmetics, daily. Lipstick leftovers could exacerbate the discoloring and aging of the lip.
People are advised to clean their lips with a cosmetic pad or a cotton swab applied with a lip cleansing product.
Lip moisturizing cosmetic products designed to moisturize and protect the lip need to be applied in a particular way.
People are advised against using products with additives, such as sweet smells and tastes, which could cause itching and irritation.
Keen attention needs to be paid to applying lip balms over what substances are being used, as they could come into contact with the mouth.
