How to soothe dry lips

Dry lips can be a real frustration for women. They can tear, become chapped and make it difficult to apply make-up properly. Luckily, Clarins’ lip care is on hand to make your lips silky smooth.

Why do lips become dry?
Similar to the skin on the face, lips also need vitamins and protecting. Whether your lips are naturally dry, or simply flaky due to external factors, you need to regularly apply a hydrating lip balm before dry lips even have the chance to appear to reduce the causes of cracked lips before symptoms occur, especially during the winter months.

How to soften and re-hydrate dry lips
To hydrate dry lips, you need to drink more water! Follow the same principles you would for hydrating your skin in general. So, when you exfoliate with Gentle Peeling Smooth Away Cream, don’t forget to lightly scrub your lips to give them a new lease of life. Next, to keep your lips moisturised daily, opt for a moisturiser specifically designed for your lips, such as HydraQuench Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm. Extremely nourishing, this balm is a great solution for chapped and dry lips. 100% of women who tested the product thought that their lips were smoother from the first application*. After using the balm for 4 weeks, 25% of the women noticed an improvement on their lips**.
