Keep your lips kissable and prevent dry skin

Just as the rest of our skin gets dry in winter so do our lips.  This is usually due to wind and heating.  There are several things you can do to prevent and treat dry skin on your lips.

Do NOT lick them!!

Licking lips stops them from being dry for about one second then our saliva dries and they are even drier than before! Lip lickers often have a red ring around their mouths from this habit.  Don’t lick dry skin on your lips!

Keep lips protected.

Before going to bed and before going outside in cold and windy weather apply a lip balm or ointment to act as a barrier to cold and wind and to serve as a moisturiser also.  If possible use a scarf to shield your lips when outside.  Try to avoid having a heater directly facing you as this will definitely cause dry skin on your lips quickly.

Drink water.

This is important at any time but will help to keep your lips from being dry.  Dry lips are one of the signs of dehydration.  Keep that water bottle handy to keep hydrated.


To make sure your lips are soft and kissable use MiEssence Jaffa Lip Balm day and night.  Nutritious shea butter, avocado and sunflower oils soften and smooth dry skin on chapped lips.
