In wintertime there is less moisture in the air and this has an effect on our lips. They get dry, itchy and cracked. Dry lips can feel very uncomfortable and tight. Did you know that the skin on the lips is one of the most sensitive areas on the body? Lips do not have the same concentration of oil glands as regular skin and they are constantly exposed to environmental factors like cold weather, airconditioning, lip licking and cosmetics.
How can you prevent chapped lips?
In mild cases, the skin on the lips is able to repair itself. But in severe cases and in wintertime your lips might need a little help from outside to repair the damaged skin barrier. Keep your lips moisturized throughout the day to prevent them from drying out and regularly apply a lip balm to moisture and nourish the sensitive skin of your lips. Lip balms often contain nourishing oils like the Klavuu Nourishing Care Lip Sleeping Pack. This lip balm is enriched with avocado, sweet almond and apricot seed oils to transform your lips from dry, flaky and chapped in to supple and soft lips overnight. The mask feels silky, not sticky and immediately soothes dehydrated lips. The mask can also be used as a daily moisturizer for the lips. The formula is lightly flavoured with vanilla and is free of parabens.
