Cold sore, dry, chapped, and sunburned lips. All you need to know and how to make your lips amazing!

"The curves of your lips rewrite history." (Oscar Wilde)

The lips are a fundamental component of a person's face and most people, when asked "What strikes you first in a person?", answers the lips.
For this reason it is extremely important to take care of them in the best possible way, even if they are a very small part of the body, they have a fundamental role. Always keep in mind that ; )


Be patience, just a little anatomy, and then we will continue with the most effective remedies to fight lip concerns!

The lips are the external contours of the mouth and are two: the upper lip and the lower one. They are mobile, soft and flexible.
The lips include portions of skin, cutaneous-mucous coverings and areas of the actual mucosa; they have a complex system of muscles and are finely innervated and vascularized.

Both the upper and lower lips are divided into three parts: dry skin or mucous membrane (anterior surface of the lip and rich in sebaceous and sweat glands), Pink rim (transitional part between the mucous and skin parts, a few sebaceous glands and no sweat glands), Wet mucosa (dorsal edge of the lip, no sebaceous or sweat glands).

The peculiarity of not having sweat and sebaceous glands externally makes more difficult the process of retaining and attracting moisture, necessary for maintaining hydrated lips.

Now that we've seen what lips are made of, let's find out what to do to avoid chapped, sunburned, dry and dehydrated lips!


• Climatic and weather factors: wind, cold, sun and heat can worsen the situation of the protective oily film of the lips which is used to keep them hydrated and healthy.
• Dehydration: when our body lacks water, the lips are also more prone to dry out. Drinking lots of water is one of the keys to hydrated lips.
• Aging: as we age, the lips also change, become thinner and drier, and it becomes difficult to maintain the right hydration.
• Cheilitis: this disorder can be caused by viral or bacterial infections and allergies. Who suffers from this disorder tend to have chapped lips, cuts, scabs, redness and burning.
• Allergies: when buying cosmetics that are not natural and with harmful chemicals, the lips can have an allergic reaction.
• Vitamin deficiency: the deficiency of some vitamins (group B, C and A) and of very important substances, such as calcium and iron, can lead to dryness and cracking.
• Saliva: it is common to moisten the lips with saliva whenever they are dry, it is an instinctive and automatic gesture, but in doing so, they will dry out even more.
• Infections such as Herpes Simplex and skin fungi can cause cracking and dryness, often with painful lesions.


• Drink lots of water and have a healthy and correct diet.
• Carry out a proper routine to have soft and healthy lips.
• Use natural, highly nutritious and emollient products.
• Protect them every day, whatever the season and the climate.


Performing a lip beauty routine every day, regardless of the season and weather is necessary to avoid dryness, cracking, sunburn and other ailments!
1) Cleanse
2) Exfoliate (1-2 times a week)
3) Mask (1-2 times a week)
4) Moisturize
5) Sun protection
