How To Permanently Get Rid Of Chapped Lips

Lips are one of the most attractive features in a woman. Smooth and healthy lips can make you look more vibrant and attractive. Dry, broke, flaky and sore lips are ‘Chapped Lips’.

Chapped, dry lips are a common problem because lips don’t have any oil glands. Some cosmetics like lipsticks, lipstains and lip glosses can also cause allergic reaction which can contribute to dryness and ultimately lead to chapped lips, unhealthy diet and low intake of water can also cause chapped lips.  Fortunately, it doesn’t take long to heal chapped lips. Soft, smooth and luscious lips is what every woman desires.

Here are some ways to get rid of chapped lips forever.

Exfoliate: Slough off that dry skin by first prepping your lips with a warm towel. Next, apply some Vaseline on your lips and let it sit for 5 or 10 minutes. Run your toothbrush under warm water and then, in circular motions, softly brush your lips. When done, take the same towel and gently rub off any excess skin and Vaseline. If you don’t have Vaseline, you can also exfoliate using a warm towel, as described above,  and then combine a little of any lip balm with sugar and  rub it on your lips.  Honey and sugar works great as well.maxresdefault

Drink water: Dry, cracked lips are a result of dehydration. So, you should drink plenty of water. Drink at least 1.5 to 2 litres of water every day. Also drink a lot of fresh fruit and vegetable juices to keep your body hydrated. Avoid drinking frizzy drinks and colas as they contain a lot of sugars and are harmful for your body. Also reduce the intake of coffee as it contains caffeine which dehydrates you further.

Sugar Method to Get Rid of Chapped Lips: Mix 1 teaspoon of olive (or vegetable) oil, and a little spoon of tan sugar together until it makes a pale surface. Take your invention. Apply it to your lips, scrubbing off whatever number drops as would be prudent. At that point, flush off your lips with water.

Coconut oil: Chapped lips needs intense moisturization to heal and repair. Apply a bit of pure coconut oil on your lips twice a day. Coconut oil contains essential fatty acids that helps to moisturize the delicate skin of the lips. Regular application of pure coconut oil will not only get rid of any dryness but it will also make your lips soft and pink.

Aloe vera: Regular application of fresh aloe vera gel is also seen to help in healing chapped lips. Aloe vera will also prevent further dryness and chapping of lips.

Cucumber and tomatoes: Grate a cucumber and extract its juice by passing it through a thin sieve. Blend a tomato and extract its juice, now mix equal quantities of cucumber and tomato juice. Soak a cotton ball in this juice and apply it liberally over your lips. This will not only help in healing cracked lips but it will also lighten the colour of your lips.

Rose petals: Soak a handful of rose petals in a cup of raw milk for two to three hours,train the rose petals and mash them until you have a thick paste. Apply this paste over your lips and allow it to remain for 15-20 minutes. Rose petals have cooling and hydrating properties that soothes chapped skin and also aids in healing it. Use this natural remedy three to four times a week and you will notice that your lips are pink and smooth.

Avoid licking your lips as this also leads to chapping. To keep your lips soft and smooth, avoid drinking and smoking and always keep your lips well moisturized.
