Dry and scaly lips can be tender and unsightly, using essential oils for chapped lips is an easy and natural remedy. Often chapped lips are caused by exposure to sun, wind, or salt water. Can also be an effect of dehydration, seasonal weather changes, or illness.
Lips do not contain any oil glands so they are prone dryness and chapping. It is important to treat chapped lips right away to prevent them from getting worse. Better yet, try to avoid chapping altogether by routinely keeping lips moisturized.
I like to apply my lip balm every night before I go to bed. When I wake up, they are nice and soft, it takes a little commitment but it is pretty easy.
