Pick the right product
Always carry a lip balm with you that contains SPF for protection against the sun, and replenishing ingredients such as beeswax, coconut oil, cocoa butter or aloe vera.
Whip up a quick and easy sugar lip scrub at home by mixing one part sugar and one part coconut oil to make a paste, rub it across your lips in small and gentle circles to remove dry skin and roughness. Wash it off after a minute or two.
Avoid aggravating the issue
If you suffer from dry and chapped lips then prevention is always better than cure. Avoid licking your lips, using lip-plumping products or matte-finish long-wear lipsticks that will draw moisture away from your mouth.
You are what you eat – or in this case – drink! Keep your fluids up and stay hydrated and your skin will thank you.
