Avoid dry, cracked lips this season.
The winter climate will crack your lips if you don't take measures to prevent it. Once cracked, know how to treat chapped lips with the help of proper lip care.
You have experienced this – a winter wind and temperature fluctuations between cold outside air and dehydrated hot air in the room will inevitably lead to chapped lips.
How can you prevent lip cracking in winter?
Prevent lip cracking by often applying a moisturizing and protective balm. Keep your lip balm handy so that you can reach it again and again. Protective ingredients include beeswax and dimethicone. They hold tight to the lip to prevent moisture loss from the wind and blowing heated air in the room. Choose a product with oils too. This will help keep the lips elastic and free from dryness.
The perfect lip balm is also food grade because you end up taking ingredients all day.
My natural lip balm is certified organic. The first ingredient is olive oil! I combined this with beeswax and castor oil. It is a simple, hypoallergenic and durable product in a convenient test tube. Keep it wherever you need it to be easy to reapply.
You must use hypo-allergenic lip care to prevent lip balm.
Lip Balm "addiction" is a cycle of allergens in lip balm products that causes lip cracking, which leads you to even bigger lip balm. The cycle continues and continues to the pleasure of lip balm company.
When I was a teenager, I was addicted to Carmex and didn't know that. Contains menthol, camphor, phenol, lanolin, salicylic acid and "flavoring". This is one mocking lip product! As a dermatologist, I would not recommend using such a product on tender lips. Lips inherently have a fragile barrier, and this material passes right through.
Use only hypoallergenic and natural products on your lips.
What allergens should be avoided in lip balms?
– citrus fruits
– lanolin (derived from wool)
– artificial flavor or fragrance
What is the best way to protect lips on the street in winter?
Outdoors, use a protective lip balm that also contains mineral zinc oxide sunscreen as a UV filter. Use only a wide range of SPF 30+ products.
