Chapped lips mean dry lips. It’s time to hydrate

Chapped & Dry Lips

Dry and chapped lips aren’t nice. At best, they’re uncomfortable, but they can be unsightly and hurt.
While you might be tempted to write dry lips off as just a normal part of life, it doesn’t have to be that way. Sometime lips just need a little TLC to keep them smooth, supple and protected. Whether it’s sunny or rainy, hot or dry, with Blistex you can avoid chapped lips and enjoy that luscious feel all year long.

Causes of dry and chapped lips

Lip skin is unique. Unlike regular skin, it has a thin outer layer, fewer and different glands and no melanin, the natural pigment in skin that helps screen out the sun’s harmful rays. They also don’t sweat, they stick out from your body and aren’t protected by clothing like most of your skin. Throw in the effects of the weather, air conditioning and even getting sick and basically, they’re just prone to becoming dry.

Looking after your lips

Whether your lips are already dry and cracked or you’re just looking to keep chapped lips at bay, there are a few easy steps you can take to show your lips some love.

  • Keep on top of your health – Many people’s lips can become dry when they’re feeling unwell.
  • Drink plenty of water – Hydration is crucial for healthy, moisturised lips. Drink plenty of water to maintain healthy, glowing skin, including your lips.
  • Use a quality lip balm – While you might be tempted to just lick your lips, it actually dries them out more. Instead, if they’re feeling a bit dry, look after them with a quality lip balm made for the job. Give your lips the relief they need so you can get back to enjoying life.

A lip balm, SPF 30 sunscreen and conditioner all in one, Blistex Lip Conditioner is the everyday self-care you need to keep your lips protected, hydrated and smooth. If you want all of that but prefer a stick format, try Blistex Lip Conditioning Balm.
