8 Tips for Heathy & Happy Lips

Do you ever wake up in the morning and feel like you’ve hit an unexplainable wall? I experienced this feeling as I struggled to wake myself up and get ready this morning. My eyes felt puffy, my skin overly dry, and my lips chapped. I applied a quick under-eye gel mask to reduce the puffiness and sipped on my coffee while scratching my cat’s head to soothe my soul. It helped and I felt more like myself, ready to tackle another day.

Chapped lips can be a problem all year because the skin on your lips is thinner and more delicate than other areas of your body. We have featured numerous recipes in Willow and Sage to help combat this skin irritation, and I encourage you to try out these recipes if you’re struggling with chapped lips. In addition to these recipes, here are eight tips to help keep your lips healthy and happy this upcoming summer season.

Tips for Healthy & Happy Lips:

-Frequently apply lip balm high in emollients and with SPF.

-Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.

-Don’t lick your lips; dried saliva removes moisture from lips.

-Turn on a humidifier while you sleep.

-Press a used green tea bag on your lips for four minutes every day to moisturize.

-Apply almond oil, a hypoallergenic moisturizer, to help soften dry lips.

-Apply pure organic honey several times daily to treat chapped lips.

-Use lipstick with conditioner, such as vitamin E oil, macadamia oil, or shea butter.

  1. Love the lip tips! Here’s just one more- apply your favorite lip balm just before you go to sleep to help keep lips moisturized all night. You’d think it would rub off on your pillow but it doesn’t. 🙂
