AVOID LICKING THEM
We are all guilty of being a tad lazy once in a while and instead of looking for our lip balm when we need it; we just lick them instead in hopes that they will look and feel just as good. But licking can actually do more harm than good. Each time you apply saliva to your lips it actually causes the air to quickly evaporate and suck up any of that moisture, which can dry out and chap your lips even more so than before. So be mindful whenever your lips feel dry and you get the urge to lick them. Make the effort to find your lip balm to properly moisturize them.
Exfoliating your lips is also an important way to allow lip balm to properly hydrate your lips. Lips can accumulate layers of dead skin just like your skin. By exfoliating them with a specific lip balm you can remove that layer and allow that moisture to thoroughly hydrate your lips.
Don’t neglect your lips during the winter. Think about just how much they’re exposed to the weather. They need every bit of care as your skin does, so always be mindful about applying lip balm to them before exposing them to any weather – cold or hot! Visit The satliva website and we’d be happy to recommend a lip moisturizer or balm that is most suited to your needs and skin type so you can enjoy soft, kissable lips.
