The weather in autumn has a detrimental effect to the skin, especially to the lips, since humidity leads to dryness and cracking, so it is recommended using a good lip balm and occasional use of a peeling.
During cold weather and in low-humidity environments, moisture escapes quickly through the top layer of skin. And because we are always moving our mouth, healing cracked lips is an extremely slow process. Lips can turn blue in the winter because in extremely cold weather or when body temperature drops, blood vessels in the lips shut down, becoming poorly oxygenated, making the lips look blue as a result.
Water loss on the lips is three to ten times higher than other parts of the face or body! This fact combined with climate changes, all contribute to making dry lips a recurring, persistent problem.
Cracked Lips can be painful, embarrassing, and uncomfortable because they can interfere with many daily activities, such as smiling, eating and talking
You can often find products labeled as lip peeling or lip scrub in stores, but you can also prepare your own at home. The nutritional characteristics of honey make it an amazing healing and anti-bacterial agent. So Here is an easy way to prepare your own lip scurb at home:
You will need:
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
Mix all ingredients well, put the mixture in a clean container and close.
Do the following: apply a bit of the scrub on clean lips and rub gently with your fingers. Then rinse with warm water and apply a protective balm. You can do this procedure twice a week.
