Ever wondered why your lips tend to chap and crack — even if your skin is oily?
Lips are likely to become chapped and cracked during the winter when it’s dry and cold outside. Extreme heat or wind can also trigger chapping.
Fortunately, a few simple steps can help keep your lips soft and smooth. This lip care routine will help your lips stay in tip-top shape — no matter the season.
Step 1: Hydrate
Use an applicator or your fingers to apply moisturizing balm liberally over lips, including at the corners.
If you’re spending time outside and your lip moisturizer doesn’t contain sunscreen, follow up with an SPF 30+ lip balm.
Reapply as necessary at regular intervals throughout the day. use a hydrating lip product 2–4 times per day. You may need to use more if you have very dry lips.
Step 2: Exfoliate
It’s recommended to exfoliate 1–2 times per week as a part of your nighttime routine:
Apply a small amount of exfoliating scrub to your fingertips.
Gently rub over the lips in small circular motions for no more than 30 seconds.
Leave mixture on lips for 10 minutes, allowing the nourishing oils to soak in.
Rinse with warm water.
Pat skin dry with a clean towel.
Apply a protective balm to lock in moisture and soothe lips.
To boost your lip health, stay hydrated and avoid picking or biting your lips.
It’s also important to apply sunscreen with at least SPF 30 anytime you’re in the sun. This can be either in your lip product or in addition to it.
Take a Home Message
Your lips don’t have the sebaceous oil glands found elsewhere on your skin. This sets them up for dryness and chapping, especially in cold, extremely hot, or windy weather.
A regular lip care routine can help keep your lips soft and smooth.
Look for a lip balm with ingredients like shea butter or petrolatum. Apply anytime your lips feel dry.
Exfoliate very dry lips once or twice per week, using sugar or salt mixed with nourishing oil, then follow up with a balm. And don’t forget to applySPF 30+to your lips any time you’ll be heading outside.
