Nov 22, 2022Plabon Bhuiya

Chapped lips are one of the most commons problems of winter. While they may seem like a minor inconvenience, treating them with the utmost care is crucial. It's time to delve into the world of lip pampering, sprinkled with a dash of humour and a pinch of glamour. After all, your lips deserve the star treatment!

What are Chapped Lips?

Chapped lips are causing irritation and inflammation leading to dryness, and peeling on the outer skin layer of your lips. And chapped lips aren't exclusive to winter; they occur all year-round demanding special attention and care.

Symptoms of Chapped Lips

  • Dryness
  • Bleeding
  • Redness
  • Cracks, flaking, or peeling
  • Burning, tingling or stinging

Reasons of Chapped Lips

Multiple factors contribute to chapped lips, stealing the spotlight from your otherwise perfect pout:

  • Dry weather
  • Dry air indoors
  • Not drinking enough water
  • Too much exposure to the sun
  • Using irritating lipsticks or lip balms
  • Not moisturising or hydrating your lips enough
  • Excessive licking, touching, or picking your lips
  • Using harsh or drying products like menthol, salicylic acid, or camphor on lips

    Do's to treat and prevent Chapped Lips

    A good balm will keep your lips dry, soft, and smooth.

    Use lip balm: Choosing a lip balm is a key element to preventing lips from getting chapped. Opt for a high-quality balm, rich in emollients. Dive into the ingredient list before making your selection, ensuring your lips are draped in luxury.

    Drink a lot of water: Water, the elixir of life, extends its benefits to chapped and dry lips. Fight off dehydration with a generous intake of water, bestowing your lips with the moisture they deserve.

    Apply early and often: Apply your chosen good quality lip balm liberally and frequently. Make it a pre-lipstick or gloss ritual for that soft, smooth allure. Keep your trusty lip balm sidekick with you at all times if you want to keep your lips soft and protected. Reapply it frequently, usually six to eight times a day, even more during travels.

    Use a humidifier indoors: Let the harmonious tunes of a humidifier echo through your abode. A humidifier is your ally, ensuring your skin remains a lush oasis by preventing irritation, especially during the winter months. Activate it at night, and let your skin rejuvenate while you sleep.

    Protect your lips even when you are outside: When was the last time you remember to extend that UV protection to your lips? Your lips crave sun protection just like the rest of your divine skin. Think about it: Your lips are constantly exposed to the sun when you’re outside. Even broad-brimmed hats can fall short of fully shading them. 

    That’s why upgrade your lip balm to one with sun protection, and let MaGéAu Naturel lip balm SPF30 be your lip's protector. Shielding them from UV rays and the whims of harsh weather.

    Don'ts to treat and prevent Chapped Lips

    Don’t exfoliate: Exfoliation, the trickster, can exacerbate chapped lips and cause further damage to your lips. Instead, enlist the help of lip balm, ointment or turn on your trusty humidifier to lock, preserve and maintain the lip moisturiser.

    Don’t lick your lips: Resist the urge to run your tongue over your lips. Licking your lips makes it extra dry. You may feel good and hydrated for a short period of time but running your tongue over your lips is the worst thing you can do to your lips. Saliva dresses out your lips and takes away your lip's moisture from your skin. Instead of licking the lips use lip balm.

    Don’t wear matt lipstick: Bid farewell to the reign of matte lipsticks; they're the arch-nemeses of lip moisture. I know, it is trendy, new and handsome! However, wearing matt lipsticks keep your lips dry for a very long time. Ambient humidity does not penetrate matte lipsticks and tends to dry out your lips. Embrace regular lipsticks, promising to keep your lips moisturised and prevent dryness.

    Don’t peel or bite flaky skin: The skin of the lips is the thinnest and the most delicate part of the body and deserves gentle care. Banish the temptation to peel or bite flaky skin, avoiding unnecessary bleeding and discomfort.
