Chapped lips can be uncomfortable and cause bleeding if they aren’t treated. Although chapped lips are more common in winter, they can also occur at any time of the year. These are some ways to heal chapped lips and treat the root cause of Neosporin Lip Health.
Resist the urge to lick
Although it may appear that you are adding moisture to your skin by licking your lips, you actually do more harm than good. It is tempting to lick your lips dry. Although it can soothe them for a short time, it won’t last very long. Lip licking can dry out your lips and cause cracking and peeling.
Hydrate Neosporin Lip Health
Dehydration could be a problem. You may be dehydrated in your lips, which are delicate and thin. Winter can be very dry. Indoor heating systems can dry you out, but you don’t have to drink water in order to cool down. Get more water.
Neosporin Lip Health Balm
Lip balm can instantly soothe chapped lips. Lip balm can also seal your lips with the air to prevent further drying. Flavored lip balms can make it tempting to lick your lips.
Coconut Oil, Olive Oil and Shea Butter can be used
Natural oils are a great way to moisturize your lips, and they also promote faster healing. It is easy to use oils. Apply a small amount of oil to your fingers and lightly rub your lips. If you experience severe chapping, repeat this process several times per day.
Apply Antibiotic Ointment to Cracked Lips
Cracking and bleeding can result from severely chapped lips. Antibiotics can help stop infection and speed up the healing process. Use the ointment after meals or before bed to prevent infection.
Exfoliate Neosporin Lip Health
When your lips are healing, exfoliate dry skin gently. Use honey and brown sugar to exfoliate. Brown sugar gently removes dead skin cells while honey soothes the skin. It will be easier to moisturize your lips using a lip balm after exfoliating.
