Here are some home remedies for chapped lips:
- Lip balm: Apply a thick, petroleum-based lip balm to lock in moisture.
- Honey: Apply honey directly to your lips and let it sit for a few minutes, then rinse it off with warm water.
- Coconut oil: Apply coconut oil directly to your lips as a natural moisturizer.
- Aloe vera: Apply aloe vera gel directly to your lips to soothe and hydrate them.
- Cucumber: Rub a slice of cucumber over your lips to hydrate and soothe them.
- Warm water with salt: Mix a pinch of salt into a cup of warm water, then use a cotton swab to gently dab it onto your lips.
- Avoid irritants: Avoid licking your lips, as saliva can dry out your skin and worsen chapped lips. Avoid using products with fragrances, dyes or alcohol as they can be irritants.
- Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated, and your skin and lips will be hydrated as well.
