Keep Your Lips Kissably Healthy During the Wintertime

girl in winter clothes

The frigid wintertime temperatures can do a number on your lips. The cold can sap the air of moisture, leaving your skin dry and cracked. Your lips can take the brunt of it all because the lip skin is among the thinnest on the body and the lips have few oil glands to keep them naturally moisturized and lubricated.

To help protect yours throughout the winter season, Metropolitan Dermatology offers these top tips:

  • Hydrate: That steaming cup of coffee is tempting, but make sure you also drink plenty of water each day to keep your body and skin hydrated. Also consider placing humidifiers in the rooms where you’ll spend the most time throughout the day.
  • Moisturize: Use a high-quality lip balm to help seal in moisture and form a protective barrier against the harsh conditions. Keep in mind that some are made for overnight use, while others are formulated for protecting your lips outside.
  • Nix the temptation to lick your lips: Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t help keep them moist. On the contrary, it actually can contribute to the dryness and cracking. That’s because digestive enzymes and bacteria in saliva can damage your lips. Plus, when saliva evaporates from the surface of your lips, it can leave them even dryer.

Do your lips need a volume boost? Consider Botox injections or dermal fillers to help keep them shapely and young looking. Schedule an appointment at your nearest Metropolitan Dermatology location in Clark, Kearny, Teaneck and Staten Island.
