There is nothing more miserable than having fun without laughing, being with him without kissing, etc because your chapped lips cause severe pain and discomfort. Use these cheap remedies to cure your chapped lips and get your good time back.
The easiest and most common treatment for chapped lips is honey. You just need to use a little raw honey to gently rub your lips 3 times per day. Or you can also use it with glycerin (which is available at almost every pharmacy) to make a mixture and apply it on your lips before sleeping and after waking up. You can see the awesome results right after the first use.
2. Cucumber for Chronic Chapped Lips
Cucumber is well-known for its amazing benefits for skin, but not many know that it can help you cure chapped lips too. If you suffer from chronic or severely chapped lips, use some slices of cucumber and hold on lips for about 20 minutes, allowing the water in the cucumber to soothe and replenish cracked lips then wash your lips with warm water. Do it a few times per day, and you will see your lips get smoother and pinker day by day.
3. Fresh Rose Petals
Roses are considered as a miracle remedy for beauty, including preventing and treating chapped lips. Rose petals help moisturize your lips as well as making them look rosy.
The only things you need to do is to choose fresh rose petals, wash them well and soak them in fresh milk (not too much milk, just enough to cover the roses) for a few hours. After that, use a spoon to crush them to make a paste. Use the paste to massage your lips before going to sleep every night.
4. Sugar for Exfoliation
Many of us have the habit of exfoliating facial and body skin but forget that lips need exfoliating too. If you are one of them, change that habit by using sugar as your lip exfoliation scrub.
You just need to mix 2 teaspoons of sugar with 1 teaspoon of honey, then you will get the perfect exfoliation scrub for your chapped lips. Apply the mixture onto your lips, gently massage them and leave it there for about 5 minutes before washing it off with warm water and applying a little olive oil onto your lips to get rid of dead cells as well as flakes.
