Do you have cracked, irritated or dry lips? This can have various causes, but it usually has to do with the weather. Cold and dry air, wind or sun will dry out the lips, causing them to crack. Many people who have chapped lips moisturise their lips by licking them. This is not a good idea and as you have probably already experienced, this only dries out your lips more. It only damages the natural oil layer even more.
If you have dry and cracked lips, you can use a nourishing lip balm, stick or cream. At Optiphar you can choose between various brands such as Avène, Eucerin, La Roche-Posay and Nuxe. You can choose a lip care with or without perfume and with or without color.
Lips can also get burned and not just in summer. During the winter, for example while you are skiing, unprotected lips can get burned. Always use a lip balm with high sun protection while skiing to protect your lips against the UV rays.
