Dry Lips

Dry lips, also known as chapped lips, occur when the lips lose moisture and become dry, cracked, and uncomfortable. This condition is common and can be caused by various factors, including environmental, lifestyle, and health-related reasons.

Causes of Dry Lips

1. Weather: Dry and cold weather can lead to moisture loss from the lips, causing them to become dry and chapped.

2. Dehydration: Not drinking enough water can result in overall dehydration, leading to dry lips.

3. Lip-licking: Constantly licking the lips can remove their natural moisture, leading to dryness. In the long run, it can also amount to lip dermatitis, known as Cheilitis.

4. Sun Exposure: UV rays from the sun can damage the delicate skin of the lips, causing them to become dry and chapped.

5. Harsh Lip Products: Certain lip care products, especially those containing irritants or allergens, can contribute to dryness.

6. Health Conditions: Certain health conditions, such as eczema, diabetes, or vitamin deficiencies, can lead to dry lips.

Treatment for Dry Lips

  1. Hydration: Drink plenty of water throughout the day to stay hydrated and prevent dry lips.
  2. Lip Moisturisation: Regularly apply a good-quality lip balm or moisturizer to keep the lips hydrated and protected.
  3. Sun Protection: Use a lip balm or lipstick with SPF to shield the lips from harmful UV rays.
  4. Avoid Lip-Licking: Refrain from licking the lips, as saliva can worsen dryness.
  5. Topical Ointments: In severe cases, dermatologists may recommend ointments with ingredients like lanolin or petrolatum to promote healing.
  6. Lip Boosters: These are pure Hyaluronic acid-based injectables that help to provide long-term natural moisturization to the lips. They do not alter the shape or contour of the lips in any way in the long run. However, initial temporary swelling can be present in response to the procedure
  7. Lip Perk: This is a multistep procedure based on advanced vortex technology that involves the infusion of hydrating and nourishing serums into the lips while mildly exfoliating them simultaneously. This 45 min lip therapy is a treat for dry lips and a must-try!
