Chapped or dry lips are a common problem that can be painful and unattractive. Common symptoms are dryness, redness, cracking, flaking, and tender or sore lips.

Here are a few, handy tips to keep them soft and supple:

  •     #Lemon


Lemon juice works as an exfoliant and removes any dead skin cells resulting in softer, smoother lips.

  • It is as easy as massaging lemon wedges onto your lips before you go to sleep.

  • Leave it on overnight and wash off the next morning.

The high fat content of milk cream makes it a great natural lip moisturizer.

  • Apply fresh milk cream on your lips and leave it on for 10 minutes. Then gently wash your lips with a cotton ball dipped in lukewarm water.

  • Do this daily to help your lips heal faster.

  •       #Sugar
