Are your lips suddenly sore and chapped, despite the pleasant weather? Even if that's not the case, you would be surprised how many people suffer from shifts in temperature this time of year. Even though the days are lighter and the skies are mostly blue, your lips are extremely delicate and sensitive, and the slightest adjustment could cause them to dry out.
Rather than trudging forward with a chapped pout, here are a few tips for keeping your smile flake free all year 'round:
Drink plenty of water
Chapped lips are sometimes an indication of lack of hydration. Although you might take good care of them during your skin care regimen, the fact of the matter is that most of your body's hydration comes from within. Make sure you're getting enough water to keep yourself well hydrated.
Use a lip moisturizer
When you think of chapped lips, your first instinct might be to grab a run-of-the-mill hydrator. However, while these might work in a pinch, you might need a more intense beauty product, especially when the weather is unpredictable. Try the Elemis Lip Revive to give your pout a potent burst of moisture. It will also soothe and heal dryness that just won't go away.
