Lippenpflege im Herbst und Winter

Lip care in autumn and winter

They are one of the most sensitive regions of our body: the lips. When the temperatures drop, we are often a long way from a soft kissable lips. Especially in the colder seasons, the otherwise delicate region tends to quickly become brittle and cracked. In contrast to the rest of our skin, the skin of the lips does not have any sebum or sweat glands that can supply it with moisture. In addition, the skin on the lips is almost 70 percent thinner than the rest of our skin. And cool weather combined with dry heated air places particular strain on the sensitive lip region. For this reason, you should pay particular attention to lip care in autumn and winter. We'll give you tips on how you can best do this.

Gentle care for delicate lips

To gently prepare your lips for subsequent care, you can first treat them with a lip peeling. You can easily prepare this yourself using simple means from your kitchen cupboard; you can quickly and efficiently remove dead skin cells from your lips. For example, with a homemade peeling made from honey and sugar. Honey contains many valuable trace elements and vitamins that support skin renewal. It also has an antiseptic effect and also binds a lot of moisture and makes the skin beautifully supple. At the same time, a peeling stimulates blood circulation and your lips are now noticeably softer. And as a nice side effect, a honey peeling also tastes pretty delicious, mmhh. During subsequent care, you should pay particular attention to the ingredients it contains. In general, care products with herbal ingredients are to be preferred. Care sticks that contain active ingredients such as shea butter, almond oil, aloe vera, beeswax, jojoba oil or dexpanthenol are particularly suitable. The latter is also a good ingredient if you suffer from cracked corners of your mouth. Not only are they painful, they can also become infected quickly and should therefore also be treated. You should also stay away from ingredients such as silicones, alcohol and menthol, as they also dry out the sensitive region even more. Furthermore, your lip care should not contain any paraffins, petrolatum or petrolatum. These are all petroleum-based products that have no real care effect on your skin, but rather prevent metabolism. By the way, what you should definitely not do is run your tongue over your lips. This removes even more moisture from your already dry lips. Special tip: If you apply the lip care particularly thickly and leave it on overnight, you will be rewarded with particularly soft, supple lips the next morning.
