Winter brings a few certainties: rain, Christmas and cracked lips. The last of which can be super painful and a real nuisance if you have to continue to buy expensive creams to soothe the area. Trust us when we say that the best medicine is the stuff you already have at home. Cracked lips are no match for these 3 home remedies so get in the kitchen and get cooking...
Check out the 3 home remedies...
1. Green Tea
The humble green tea has a number of amazing natural properties and has long been associated with its natural antiseptic and soothing properties. Dunk your favorite tea in hot water and allow to cool slightly before applying to your lips. Hold there for a few minutes and allow the tea to calm and numb the area.
2. Sugar and Olive Oil
Slough away all the nasty dead skin by creating an exfoliating paste from sugar and olive oil. Combine the two and apply to your lips in a rubbing motion until they feel all brand new. Repeat the process daily to reveal fresh skin.
3. Lemon Juice
Get squeezing because fresh lemon juice is a great remedy for cracked and dry lips. Mix one teaspoon of milk with three drops of lemon juice and let sit in the refrigerator for one hour. Take out and apply directly to your lips before bedtime every night.
