Protect your lips

Your lips are often the first to surrender to cold winter air.

In comparison to other parts of the face, the lips have the least protection. While your face is covered in a nice, relatively thick, protective layer of skin that, if you're careful, remains intact and prevents dryness, your lips are virtually naked in comparison. Most of us need The layer of "skin" on the lips called stratum corneum is very thin and do have sweat pores/glands. This means we need to moisturise and protect our lips to keep them smooth and soft.

How to treat chapped lips

Use lip balm. One application of Boro Plus Skin care Cream can protect the delicate lip skin from the elements. Boro Plus Cream is high in emollients and herbal oils which lock in moisture and seals off cracks and splits on drying lips.

Apply early and often. Moisturise your lips before you put on lipstick or lip gloss, not after. To keep your lips protected, reapply frequently. You need about six to eight coats during the day, so apply first thing in the morning, last thing at night, and every couple of hours during the day. To make this easier, stash a tube of Boro Plus in your purse, one in the car, a third your desk, and another near the bed.

Protect your lips when you’re outside. You cover your hands and feet when the temperature drops; do the same for your lips. Wear a scarf or a ski mask that covers your mouth when you go out in the cold. And remember to carry a tube of Boro Plus Skin care cream.

Factors inside your body can also dry out your lips.

Drink enough water, especially in winters. You know drinking adequate water has many benefits for your body. One of those is to fight the dehydration that leads to chapped lips.

Use a humidifier indoors. These devices provide the moisture your lips and skin crave. It’s great to have one at work as well as at home, especially in the winter. Turn it on at night to replenish your skin while you sleep.

Don’t lick your lips. While it might seem like a good idea at the time, licking your lips is the worst thing you can do for them. As your saliva dries, it takes away more moisture from the lip skin. Apply a coat of Boro Plus Skin care cream instead.
