Easy Tips for Battling Against Chapped Lips



Chapped lips seem to be synonymous with winter in many parts of the world at large; dry and flaky lips comes with cold and dry weather. Fortunately, there are ways to avoid this, and keep your lips looking soft and un-chapped throughout the year. Keeping your lips un-chapped is very important when it comes to comfort and aesthetics, because chapped lips are often sore and uncomfortable. Since they happen when the skin is dry, it also means that your skin is uncomfortably tight at the same time.

Oil

            There are various oils which are good for chapped lips, and two of the most well-known include coconut oil, and sweet almond oil. Both oils are extremely rich and fatty, which is good for repairing your various types of skin.

            Coconut oil is thicker, and not so easily absorbed. For this reason, it is best used by people who want an overnight cure, as that can give it time to do its work. Coconut oil is solid at room temperature, which can make it easier to apply.

            Sweet almond oil is more suited to application during the day, as it is a thinner oil, and more easily absorbed. Sweet almond oil is also a liquid at room temperature, which makes it easier to carry throughout the day.

Cucumber

            As with anything else, you should always make sure that you read other people’s ideas and reviews of different products, including Angel lift review at skincare.net.

            Cucumber is something which has been said to be very good for chapped lips, for a number of reasons. The juice is very healing, and it can be applied during the day so long as you have access to a cucumber slice. Apply the juice to your lips, wash it of after ten minutes, and you are done.

Aloe

            Aloe is wonderfully healing for just about everything, and chapped lips are no exception. This is a very good treatment for overnight use, as it means that there is plenty of time for the aloe to be absorbed by your skin. To use it, squeeze the gel out of the leaf, and apply it to your lips before going to bed. Rinse carefully in the morning.

Green Tea Bags

            Green tea bags are very good for in general, being packed full of antioxidants and toxin reducers. This is a remedy for chapped lips which can be used anywhere, so long as you have to both a green tea bag, and a cup of hot water.


            The way to use this remedy is to put the tea bag into the hot water for a short time (maybe you can wing using it to make a cup of tea at the same time!), and then apply the green tea bag to your lips. Be careful not to burn yourself. Repeat this once a day and the tannins in the green tea will act to soothe the skin on your lips over a period of some time.
