It feels like the harmattan fully manifested itself this January. The weather has been very dry since this year started. The lips being very sensitive are usually the first to get affected by the harmattan. Many people resort to licking their lips more often than usual this time. What we do not know is that spittle worsens the condition of the lips because it undergoes rapid evaporation. This has adverse effects on the lips on a long run.
When the lips are not properly catered for they begin to crack and has a tendency of peeling off in severe cases. All that can be avoided with this very easy method.
All you need is one tea spoon of sugar and one tea spoon of coconut oil. You could also add one tea spoon of honey.
Mix all the ingredients together properly in a clean plate.
Taking small quantities of the mixture at a time, scrub your lips from end to end in a zigzag manner. If your lips are badly damanged, I would advise you take your time to scrub gradually.
Leave the mixture on your lips for about 10 to 15 minuites for proper results.
Use a clean clothe to wipe out the mixture from your lips. You should see a healthy looking lip already.
