HOME REMEDY: Dry lips

Written by Sof McVeigh
At this time of year when we spend most of our time wrapped up, it’s easy to forget that our skin is our body’s largest organ and it has many vital functions to perform. It regulates body temperature and it indicates, with myriad rashes, when something’s wrong. It can also absorb much of what you put on it – both the good and the bad.

When you think of skin in this way, it makes sense to think about what you put on it.

I don’t like creams or lip balms with a petroleum base because these can act as a barrier and prevent the skin regulating its own moisture – often the more you put on, the more you need. So if you are constantly reaching for your petroleum-based lip balm for your dry, chapped lips, think again and use one that is non petroleum- based.

After years of doing just that, I now use only cocoa butter- based lip balms and it makes a huge difference. I even make my own with a slight hint of colour, so my lips not only feel good but look good too.

If you want to make your own, you can get all you need from my website.
