Home Remedies and Natural Cures for Chapped Lips Treatment:


*Chapped Lips Home Remedy Using Honey and Vaseline*

The nutritional characteristics of honey make it an amazing healing and anti-bacterial agent. Similarly, Vaseline is considered one of the best skin protectants. When these two items are combined, you have an effective home remedy for chapped lips:

-Put some honey on your lips let it dry for a few seconds.

-Without moving your lips, apply some Vaseline on top of the lips.

-Leave the honey and Vaseline on your lips for 10-15 minutes.

-Finally, dip a Q-tip dip in hot water and use it to remove the honey and Vaseline in two strokes.

-Do this once a day for about 2-5 days to get rid of chapped lips.


*Natural Remedy for Chapped Lips Using Water Therapy*

Dehydration Can Cause Chapped Lips:

Keeping your cells hydrated by drinking plenty of water can help keep your lips from getting dry and chapped. Drinking at least eight glasses of water a day can help your chapped lips heal, and will lower your chances of having chapped lips in the future.

Since dehydration is the main cause of dry or chapped lips, it is recommended to drink at least 2-3 litres of water daily.


*Natural Cure for Chapped Lips Using Cucumbers*

Rub your lips with a slice of cucumber. Many people have found this to be a simple but effective chapped lip remedy.


*Using Aloe Vera for Curing Chapped Lips*

The herbal benefits of Aloe Vera make it an amazing healing agent for skin. Therefore, to cure chapped lips, try putting a small amount of Aloe Vera gel on your lips daily.


*Use Lip Balm Once Every Hour*

Use a lip balm. Numerous products are available over the counter. Pick one that you like so you’ll use it frequently. Most lip balms are waxy or greasy and work by sealing in moisture with a protective barrier. Plain old petroleum jelly works just fine, too.

Chapped lips are caused by the skin on your lips getting dried out. Using lip balm every hour, or at least every two hours, will keeps your lips from getting too dry.


*Humidify Your Home*

If you frequently have chapped lips, the problem could be that the air in your home is too dry. Using a humidifier, especially in the rooms where you spend most of your time, could help. Also, on dry winter days, try to use a humidifier in your home to keep the air moist.


Others Recommendations:

Apply an excessive amount of carmex onto your lips at night, like a nice thick slab over your lips, and in the morning your lips will be good as new, because they have been absorbing the menthol, camphor, and phenol which helps bring back the normal texture to your lips.

I recommend carmex, it has only natural ingredients; Menthol, Camphor, Alum, Cocoa Butter, and Mineral oil. It works wonders for my lips! It’s avaliable in most stores. Get it! It’s worth it!

If you are not familiar with this product, you can click below to view a picture of carmex lip care:×300/2570.jpg×300/2567.jpg


Apply Vitamin E on the lips before going to bed and leave it overnight, and when you wake up the next morning, you’ll see the difference! Try this for 3 days or as needed. It’s very easy and convenient! Just punch a little hole into the Vitamin E capsule and squeeze the liquid onto the lips.


Massaging coconut oil onto my lips every day has completely taken care of my chapped lips. I have had dry chapped lips most of my life. Coconut oil is the only thing that has ever worked.


Moisturize and protect your parched, peeling lips with castor oil. Carry a small travel size squeezeable bottle of the oil and apply it with your finger often throughout the day. If you plan to be out in the sun, use a natural petroleum and alcohol-free balm with an SPF of 15 a few minutes after rubbing in the castor oil.


I hope you’ll find the above recommendations useful and be able to find at least one or two methods that will work for you. Good Luck and I hope your lips will feel better soon.

Hope this helps you out. I know many people have used toothpaste. Of course nothing is an instant cure. The lavender does sooth your skin. Oatmeal is used in hospitals for bathing irritated skin. Naturally, many of the substances that tend to sting are used as antiseptic such as vinegar, lemon juice, garlic and so on. I have heard that the ancients used avacado and I know mint is helpful. It may be a while until you discover what works best for you.

Be sure and wash your face 3 times a day with acne prepared soap and use a acne freshner afterward. Then inbetween you can try out some of the above remedies. It is crucial to keep your skin clean. Watch your food intake, I’m not sure if you notice an increase in outbreaks dependent on your choice of foods, but it can’t hurt to go easy on grease, chocolate and so on. Drink as much water as you can, get plenty of rest and Good Luck!
