Dry, chapped lips can be irritating and painful
Tips from the kitchen
Ghee or butter
Apply ghee or butter as often as possible. Do not lick your lips.
Almond paste or malai
Almond paste or malai can also be applied thrice a day to reduce dryness.
Sugar and honey
Mix sugar with honey and use it as a gentle scrub to exfoliate dead skin on the lips. Apply coconut oil after exfoliating to lock in moisture and help the lip mucosa heal.
