Say Goodbye to Chapped Lips: Our Dry Lip Saviours

person Posted By: Mila Meijerink

Winter brings cosy jumpers, hot chocolate, and picturesque snowscapes. But it also brings dry, chapped lips. If you’ve ever experienced chapped lips you understand how frustrating it can be. But do you know the causes of dry lips, and why the winter can wreak havoc on your skin? The good news is that with the right products, and lip care routine, you can keep your lips soft, smooth and chapped-free all season long.

What causes dry, chapped lips?

Chapped lips are often a sign of dehydration, and with the cold weather, skin is more prone to dehydration due to evaporation. For example when we come in from the cold or windy weather to a centrally heated house, that sudden change in temperature causes skin to be dehydrated.


Unknowing habits can contribute. Your lips are made from delicate skin, that small and potentially unknowing habit of licking your lips, isn’t hydrating them. Although it can provide temporary relief from dehydrated lips, the enzymes in your saliva are too harsh for the delicate skin on your lips. Also, avoid biting your lips, and keep items like pens away from your mouth.


How to treat chapped lips


Thankfully treating chapped lips is easy. You can also apply a good lip balm or ointment as required throughout the day. Don’t forget to use some after eating and drinking, as well as last thing at night so it can get to work while you sleep. Our recommendation for a lip balm on the go is our Intense Cupuacu Replenishing & Nourishing 2-1 Lip-Repair Mask. It aims to hydrate and re-texturise your lips, leaving them feeling soothed and conditioned.

Exfoliating our lips is just as important as our skin. Dead skin cells and flakey skin can build up on your lips, it’s important to remove the dead skin cells to allow products to penetrate effectively. The texture of your lips contributes to the appearance, using a lip scrub when needed can improve texture, and bring blood to the surface giving a more rejuvenated and fuller look. Our Velvet Perfecting Rose Sugar Lip Scrub doesn’t just work to scrub away skin cells, but being rich in vitamin E and sweet almond oil, it provides that all-important UV damage and hydrates.

Gently exfoliate your lips in circular motions to remove dead skin cells and rinse off with water. After it leaves your lips more radiant, and with a brighter glow. All ready for the next step.
