It’s very important to keep your puckers moisturized all day everyday! The skin on your lips is super thin and the blood supply is very close to the surface hence why your lips easily turn pink or red. They also don’t contain any oils glands and don’t produce any oil, like the rest of your body. As a result your lips tend to become more dehydrated and chapped. Not only this, but if you’re a lip licker…please take note that this may relieve dryness temporarily however when you lick your lips, the saliva then dries, taking with it every last bit of natural moisture. So the more you lick, the drier they become – making matters worse!
First of all, stop licking your lips! It really does no good. Second, use a good moisturizer to keep them hydrated. I just started using a new product called Juice Beauty Organic Lip Moisturizer. ALL NATURAL and so far has been really good at keeping my lips thoroughly quenched and feeling luscious! You can find this lip moisturizer at JuiceBeauty.com or ULTA for $15. I’m sure some other places may carry it as well since it originally started selling out of Whole Foods (it’s a Bay Area brand…woot woot!).
