Wind and frost are preparing surprises for our skin, including for the delicate skin of the lips
In autumn and winter dry lips more often than usual. These tips will help solve the problem.
Causes of dry lips
In fact, the main reason for the drying out of the skin is frosty and windy weather and lack of hydration. However, sometimes the dryness can indicate health problems or banal dehydration. To the dryness can cause colds, antibiotics, bad habits, excessive consumption of caffeinated drinks, which removes water from the body. If after following the following instructions you still have too much dry skin on the lips, consult a doctor, as this may be a symptom of serious diseases.

The best option would be a lip balm with SPF, as it prevents photoaging of the already thin skin of the lips. It is important to use a balm under matte lipsticks, as they can overly dry the skin.
