Your lips are a sensitive part of your body that has a habit of getting dry, flakey, and chapped even when the rest of your face is smooth and radiant. The skin on your lips is very thin and requires constant attention in order to keep them soft and kissable. If you suffer from dry, cracked lips, and your waxy, run-of-the-mill lip balm just isn’t cutting it, here are a few tips from Lion’s Mane Infusions.
Keep Yourself Well-Hydrated
When your body is dehydrated, one of the first places it can show is on your skin – including your lips. Drinking enough water every day will help your body to detoxify itself and keep your skin smooth, tight, and soft. When you fail to hydrate properly, you may notice that your lips are frequently dry, chapped, or flaky.
It’s widely believed that drinking 8 glasses of water per day is enough to keep yourself hydrated. If you’re having trouble doing so, try creating an alarm on your phone to remind you to drink, and carry a water bottle with you when you’re out and about.
Sunlight is the number 1 driver of premature aging in your skin. Prolonged exposure to harmful UV rays can penetrate your skin and cause the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles long before your genetics would cause them to show.
To help protect your lips from the sun, you can use sunscreen that is specially formulated to be gentle on your lips while protecting them from the sun’s harmful rays.
Exfoliation is key to removing dead cells from the surface of your skin, allowing the layers underneath to shine. Your lips need to be exfoliated too, but be careful not to do it too much. Remember, your lips are sensitive, and repeated exposure to exfoliating products can actually cause your lips to become inflamed.
Use a Quality Lip Balm
The waxy lip balms you find in grocery store checkout lines can sometimes offer a quick fix for dry, chapped lips, but that’s about it. To protect, hydrate, and soothe your lips, you need a quality lip balm, like the Holiday Healing CBD Lip Balm from Lion’s Mane Infusions. Our products are locally made with all-natural essential oils, and full-spectrum CBD.
