Dry Lips Information and Treatment

Dry skin can lead to other skin related complaints such as fissures are cracks in the skin which can be very painful. They can also provide a port of entry for bacteria to cause infections. The best thing is to take preventive measures, Le., use emollients and cold creams at bedtime and a good sunscreen during the daytime. If the body is unable to perspire to regulate heat flow in the body, a patient will suffer from dry skin. This is known as hypohidrosis.

1. Keeping your lips smooth, soft and chap-free can be as simple as slicking on your favourite lipstick. Lipstick helps protect your lips. However,if your lips are dry and chapped, stop using any lipstick, wait till your lips recover completely and then restart using lipstick, one at a time, to find out which brand or shade is responsible.

2. Change to a tooth paste which has no colour in it, i.e., a white one.

3. Stop using soap and change to a face wash.

4. Avoid tobacco and smoking.

5. Stop using chapsticks. Use petroleum jelly or vaseline frequently. If you are not working and staying at home, then the best thing to use is edible sunflower oil (which is used for cooking) several times a day.It is a good idea to use vaseline at night.

6. Avoid licking chapped lips. Keep them well moisturized.

7. Avoid biting chapped lips. Chewing away at the protective mucous membrane can make lips swollen and painful and may even lead to infection.

8. Avoid using drying skin care products fonnulated with alcohol or benzoyl peroxide, such as astringents or acne creams, on your lips.

9. Take vitamin supplements.

10. Eat plenty of green vegetables and fruits.

In spite of all these measures if your lips don't improve, then you probably need to see a dermatologist.
