Many of us have to deal with a major and unaesthetic problem once the cold season arrives: chapped lips.
The common aspect of chapped lips is that of dry, cracked and sore lips.
The problem is that they can give us an uncomfortable sensation of prickle and they can prevent us from doing many things such as smiling, eating and talking.
So, I thought that this issue could be alleviated with some natural remedies. Take some time and check them out carefully. You might find them useful.
- Honey – this sweet and consistent substance can perform miracles for a lot of diseases. However, it is also great for soothing and curing the dryness and redness of chapped lips. Apply a dab with your finger on the lips and let it dry for a few seconds.
- Coconut oil – many people don’t know this but coconut oil has wonderful properties not just for lips but for hair as well. To cure your chapped lips symptoms you just need to apply a small amount of oil to the lips several times per day. The effects will be visible right away.
- Glycerin – is used for the fabrication of many skin care products because it plays a key role in the regeneration of your skin structure. Glycerin contributes to the restoration of water levels in your skills and also prevents dryness.
- Almond and butter – you can try to mix some almonds powder with butter. The result should be a thick paste which needs to be applied on the cracked lips for seven days. It will completely cure your lips, leaving them soft and smooth.
- Aloe Vera – this plant is an amazing healing agent for your skin. The best form to use it on your lips is that of gel. Rub your lips with a small amount of Aloe Vera gel. Do this on a daily basis and the natural, pleasant aspect of your lips will reappear.
I hope all these natural remedies will help you keep your lips in a good condition. Last but not least, remember that it is better to prevent than to treat. The appearance of crackings in your lips could be prevented if you hydrate yourself regularly and you avoid overexposure to extreme temperatures or lip biting.
