Chapped lips – is a condition whereby the lips become dry and possibly cracked. It may be caused by the evaporation of moisture. Often the lips become dry because the layer of oil that is naturally produced by the body to coat the lips is removed or is lacking.

Lips have almost no melanin, the natural pigment in skin that helps screen out the sun’s harmful rays. Your lips’ natural tendency toward dryness and chapping is aggravated by the fact that they are more prominent than almost any other part of your body–and most of the time they are unprotected by clothing and fully exposed to the elements. While exposure to sun, wind and cold can obviously speed the rate of moisture loss, your lips aren’t even safe indoors. They can suffer from lack of moisture in centrally heated or air-conditioned rooms in which the relative humidity is low.

The Cure:

  • The simplest and natural remedy for chapped lip is consumption of adequate water and liquids so the hydration level of body is properly maintained.
  • Regular application of petroleum jelly on the lips helps also in curing the dryness. Take note that is the dryness of the lips is prevented then it would prevent also lip chapping. It is recommended to put on Petroleum Jelly during bedtime.
  • Rose Petal in Milk – soak a rose petal in milk and then mesh these this milk soaked rose petal to produce a smooth paste. This method restores the normal smoothness of lips with a bonus gift of natural redness of the lips.
  • Rub unto lips fresh juice from a cucumber slice. Retain the extract on lips for at least an hour.
  • Aloe Vera Gel – regular application of this is an effective and efficient herbal remedy to cure chapped lips. Smear fine layer of Aloe Vera gel on lips regularly two times a day to treat the cracked lip.
  • Sunscreen Lip Balm – if your lips have the most tendency to chap, use a sunscreen lotion based lip balm when exposed to sunlight to provide protection from sun dryness which ultimately cause chapped lips.
  • Cheap Lipstick – be practical but always go for quality and ingredients of the lipstick you are using. Cheap ingredients of lipstick may impose dryness and roughness on lips.
  • We also recommend regular lip exfoliation by dry brushing them with a very soft toothbrush or washcloth to eliminate roughness and plump up lips.
  • Most importantly, stop sucking or licking your lips. According to Dr. Elsenberg of University of Connecticut Health Center,the over-wetting with saliva of the outer lips due to chronic lip licking can actually lead to harmful dryness or even infection of the lips, with peeling, cracking and discomfort. Chapped lips are exposed to the risk of sunburn too.
