One bad habit we have to admit to is the fact that yes! sometimes we lick our lips. With the arrival of winter, chilly weather is extremely harsh on our skin. Our lips are super sensitive and when exposed (we can’t help it) to the cold breeze they basically dry out!
Here are a couple of tips for both women and men, we at revorish.com follow in order to keep our lips hydrated, nourished and healthy.
We can’t forget that licking our lips basically worsens the situation. Our saliva contains acids which break down food, these acids basically just dry us out when we lick our lips.
In the morning before washing your face, apply some lip balm or Vaseline on your lips. Facial cleansers contain oil fighting ingredients which which can dry our lips.
Always carry lip balm with you and definitely select one with spf and with one of these super moisturizing ingredients …beeswax, vitamin E or glycerin.
When at home try this amazing D.I.Y. Take a cucumber and simply take one to three slices (the rest can be used for your salad or for other D.I.Y./skincare treatments…tons on our page) and place them on your lips. Hold them for like 15 min. During this time your lips will absorb all the water from the slices of cucumber.
We love the following P.M. D.I.Y. (When we’re sleeping)
Simply mix olive oil and honey. Olive oil is beyond moisturizing and repairing (loaded with vitamin E and minerals) Honey is also a great humectant but has tons of antibacterial and antiviral properties, so adios! chapped lips.
Apply the mixture to your lips and the next morning your lips will be moisturized, healthy and ready to face the cold chilly weather.
P.S. Always moisturize before heading out!
