Kiss away the winter dryness
Do you find blowing kisses during winter less embarrassing than actually kissing the person?
Enrich Salons will tell you how to take care of your chapped lips this season.
Chapped lips are not just a winter problem really.
They are caused by weather changes, ageing, the bad habit of biting your lips, dehydration, use of too much lipstick and so on.
To have healthy kissable lips, you have to treat them from inside as well as outside.
Drink plenty of water, eat read meat, fortified cereals, Swiss cheese, eggs, silken tofu, and drink skimmed milk.
Avoid smoking before it is too late to repair the discolouring of the lips.
Use natural lip balms containing SPF.Especially before going to bed.
Look for the following ingredients when you choose your lip balm:
Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Glycerin, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, Coconut oil, Beeswax, Vitamin A and Vitamin D.
If you can’t go without lipsticks during winter, choose a lip balm that has a tint of lip colour.
Here are some home remedies you can try in turns on your lips:
Moisturize your lips with honey before going to bed. This is the best way to clean them and lighten their colour.
You can replace honey with ghee too.
Press a used green tea bag against your lips for five minutes every day and see the difference.
Ageing lips are taken care of by lemon juice. Mix one spoon of milk cream with a few drops of lemon juice and put it in the fridge for an hour. Apply it on and around your lips before going to bed.
Rose water mixed with glycerine will make your lips as well as your whole face glow!
Glycerine mixed with honey will melt away wrinkles and dryness. Leave it on for fifteen minutes before washing it off. Apply it again before going to bed.
If your lips are extremely chapped, turn to jojoba oil. Leave it on for fifteen minutes.
Crush a peeled cucumber and apply the juice on your lips. Do this regularly.
Exfoliation is a must. Take some sugar and a few drops of olive oil and scrub your lips gently with this for five minutes. Wash it off with normal water, and follow it up with a good lip balm.
A special winter treatment you can do on your lips at home is as follows:
