Often in winters lips can become dry, scaly and unattractive. Dry lips can also be caused due to over exposure to wind, exposure to sun, allergy, nutritional deficiency or even smoking. Lips have a tendency to loose moisture as they don’t have any oil glands to protect the outer layer against extreme weather conditions and hence they start to peel off.
Using a Petroleum Jelly or hydrating lip balm is effective in preventing dry lips especially in winters. These lip balms have the ability to locks the moisture and act as barriers against harsh weather. For treating inflamed lips caused due to an allergy or an irritation, it is recommended to use a medicated cream that can heal the inflammation.
Lip balms, Medicated relied creams, intensive moisturizers from leading brands like Blistex, Nivea are available on Chemist-4-U – the UK based online pharmacy.
