Something that many of us suffer from is dry chapped lips. It usually occurs in the colder months but can happen all year round. Lots of us find it hard to get relief from this as we often use a lip balm that is not up to the job. There are so many lip balms available to purchase that it is hard to know which one you can rely on. Many are filled with not great ingredients such as petroleum jelly and flavourings, which might make the lip product feel nice but are not doing anything to heal chapped lips properly. Instead, it is important to use a lip balm full of hydrating healing ingredients like our amazing natural lip balm. Read on to find out why it is the best lip balm for chapped lips.
The reason that our lips are so susceptible to chapping is because they do not contain sebaceous glands, which means that they are very vulnerable to damage. Add to this that they get worked and stretched when we eat and talk means that the delicate lip tissue is regularly strained. This stress can make them dry, chapped and cracked. So, it's important to choose your lip balm carefully because they are not all equal. We recommend using a 100% natural lip balm like Nakin’s Lip Treatment Balm. When a lip balm is 100% natural it means that it is free from those harsh and unnecessary ingredients like flavourings, fragrance and parabens - which can actually irritate lips further. Nakin’s Amazing Lip Balm has a stripped back formula of just the best lip healing ingredients like shea butter, olive, grape seed, argan and baobab oil. It is beautifully hydrating and fills in the cracks of chapped lips with its soft restoring formula. It has a nice spongy texture that helps lips immediately on contact.
It is also long lasting, so you won’t need to worry about constantly reapplying and feeling like you have not got your money’s worth. It is decanted in a sweet little pot so there is no need to worry about having to squeeze the last bits from the tube. The pot is great to have by the bedside or in a handbag and is also perfect for travel.
Apply our anti-ageing lip balm as required in the day and always at night. This is because we often breathe through our mouths at night which can be quite drying to lips. It is also great to use under other lip products such as a lip stick or lip gloss. These can sometimes be drying to lips and the lip balm acts a protective and smoothing base. Our lip balm is not glossy or sticky and only a small amount is needed to help the lip surface look and feel smooth plus healthy. Apply a few minutes before using a lip colour to give it time to sink into the tissue and work its magic.
If you suffer with chapped and flaky lips, then it helps to give them exfoliation treatments. This can be carried out with a muslin cloth or really soft toothbrush. Another thing that is really important is to leave the lips alone as much as possible, as licking and biting them can cause further chapping.
