Dry lips, burning sensations, rough touch... You have all the symptoms of chapped lips, I named the plague of the winter which rages from the first cold wave and lasts until the arrival of the beautiful days. It stings both literally and figuratively! So why are our lips so sensitive at this time of year?
Like most of us, our lips tend to want to boycott the cold weather in order to thrive. Indeed, the change of climate and the lower temperatures favor dry lips or even cracked ones. The drier cold air of winter dries out the upper layer of the skin, which results in damage to the lips, which are particularly fragile. The result? They peel and chill. In addition, the use of whitening toothpastes and certain lipsticks can dehydrate your lips even more! It's time to act and call the superhero of lips in distress, the avenger of lip cosmetics, the the lip balm to the rescue.
