Hallos! I hope you the holidays are going down a treat!
Now we turn to the lips…if you’ve got children like mine, you’re probably repeating the statement ‘go and put some petroleum jelly on your lips’ very often these days. Maybe they are listening, maybe they are not. 😀 Let’s give you some more tips to prevent or treat dry and chapped lips.
Moisten a kitchen paper or handkerchief and wet your lips (Or you could use an old soft-bristled toothbrush to gently brush out the dry skin. Don’t do this for more than 60 seconds to prevent irritation and bleeding). Then apply petroleum jelly to your lips and rub your lips together to make sure the jelly is well absorbed. Then use lipstick (if you’re female), blot out excess by biting on dry wipes and then apply lip gloss…just enough to give a nice shine.
Overnight, apply moisturizer to your lips and around your mouth to allow your lips moisturize overnight. If you don’t want to use a moisturizer, use petroleum jelly.
Drinking sufficient water daily also doesn’t hurt 😀 Be a boy scout and carry lip balm around in your pocket or handbag.
Enjoy the rest of the day 😀
