Other Tips: Do’s and Dont’s

Along with the above mentioned remedies you also have to keep in mind some vital tips to save your lips from being charred. Here are the key tips to follow:

Never lick the charred lips

It is natural to be tempted to lick your charred lips as it offers the quick relief and instant moisture but did you know that it does more harm than good? Yes, that’s right. Your lips have an oily surface cover to keep them moist enough to avoid cracking and external dryness. By licking lips, you destroy this moisture-protecting layer and as a result, your lips become dry and start cracking. By licking your saliva comes into direct contact with the lips that irritate lips due to the presence of digestive enzymes… So avoid licking lips if you don’t want them to be charred or cracked.

Apply a friendly lip balm

 Instead of licking, a better way to make your lips moist is to use lip balm. An ideal lip balm makes the skin’s surface smoother and packs many lip-friendly properties. Moreover, it also keeps your lips moist for a long. Especially choose potions with petroleum and lanolin. One thing to remember here is that if you are suffering from a cold it is very important to rub some lip balm on your lips before you go to the bed. It is not uncommon to breathe through the mouth instead of the nose, and it can further dry the lips. With the lip balms applied, you would be able to retain maximum lip moisture and would be saved from dried and charred lips.
