Dealing with dry lips

32 posts in this topic

Posted

I've had this problem for ages. I used tons of lip balms, scrubs for lips, tried applaying normal moisturizer but nothing works :alpacaworry: 

Maybe someone has some tips for reaaaally dry lips? I've searched the internets, but I couldn't find any solution that would work for me :alpacadone:

Maybe you read it already, but have you tried honey on your lips?
I heard this from my doctor the other day when she saw my lips...
Just apply some honey to your lips and leave it on there for quite a while, but be sure not to lick it off.
Also you have to drink enough water to make sure your lips don't dry out.

Sorry, nothing special I know. :alpacaworry2:
Probably you heard/read all of this already, but the honey always helps me
Good luck!

You should think also about the food you eat. There are tons of reason sometimes, or you lack something and also how much water you daily drinking.

Could you specify what should I eat? I've never actually cared about my diet so I think that could be a reason behind my problem

I read about scrubs using honey and sugar(? I'm not sure). And simple methods are the best :3 I will definitely try :alpacacrush:

Describe me what you normally use to eat.
(Even when everybody's body is different there are things which work. For example I know when I shouldn't eat specific food in certain time.)
And also was thinking about more things. Do you sleep with your mouth open? If yes try a humidifier.

Nah, mouth closed.

I eat basically everything. A lot of bread, chocolate and sweets, but also huge amounts of vegetables. Not much junk food.

Sorry if this doesn't help, I'm awful at keeping track what I eat :alpacadone:

Yeah, sugar is the biggest reason for skin to age fast too.
Just reduce it first until your body and lips improve and then you can eat it from time to time :D

i get dry lips often because i use matte and satin lipsticks and hate having moist lips so i use mint julips lip scrub from lush. you can make your own with less ingridients like honey and caster sugar. It makes my lips really soft and if you're like me and hate having moist lips then try using a lip balm (preferably with honey) at night when you're asleep.

Lush has some really good lib scrubs, and they've worked well for me (I also have really dry lips). I think using those occasionally, and drinking more water would help a lot.

Yup. The sugars found in fruit etc. also contribute to aging. In general high glucose isn't too good for that... The sun is the number one source of aging (keep in mind UVA rays penetrate through glass so even if you're inside) but sugar is pretty major too.

I've actually had to go to the doctor before for extremely dry lips they were that bad lol. He gave me some free samples for things. Stuff like aquaphor is good.
