Olive oil seals the moisture of your lip. Apply olive with gentle posture. Keep one bottle of olive oil in your bag and apply it with clean hand. It helps to moist your lip and keep the moisture locked.
vi. PETROLEUM GEL:
I highly recommend everyone to use a good quality petroleum gel instead of using Lip balm. I am not telling you to stop using lip balm but petroleum gel is more effective. Try to buy unflavored petroleum gel. Whenever you would feel that your lips are dry use petroleum gel.
PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE:
Preventive action can give you much relief as you are caution about the arrival of chapped or cracked lips.
Below are some few tips:
- First and foremost work of yours would be galloping as much water as you can. In a survey it is being seen that people drunk only 6-7 glass of water a day and minimum 2 to 3 bottles of soft drinks or alcoholic drinks. Avoid consumption of alcoholic product. Drink at least 10-12 glasses of water a day.
- If you are buying lip balms try to avoid the product containing phenol, mint or alcohol. This tends to dry out your lip. Buy good quality lip balms which contain higher SPF. Higher SPF lip balm will protect your skin from UV rays.
- If you are going outside and using any cosmetics on your lip first try to coat your lips with petroleum jelly or lip balm( Try to use those lip balm which contains higher SPF). Then apply other cosmetics. Sometimes because of the cosmetics your lips become chapped and cracked.
- Avoid using too much cosmetics. Whenever you are using cream on your face try to avoid the lip area. As it is more sensitive than your faces skin.
- When you woke up in the morning and find that your lip is cracked you can take some protective action. Take your toothbrush and gently rub it to your lips. This will exfoliate the dry skin on your lip. After that apply olive oil or Glycerin. This will keep your lips quite healthy and luscious.
- Also avoid licking your lips all the time. You are taking so many preventive option and solution but not stopping licking your lips than its result is very ghastly. So, if possible than stay away from licking your lips to get a vivacious looking lips.
