Lots of things can cause chapped lips and some are totally out of your control like weather and genetics. But what if there was a simpler solution?
While I can say this has worked for me, I am not a doctor so I can’t say for certain this will work for everyone. One of the first places your body shows you that you’re dehydrated is your lips! The average person is supposed to drink eight 8 oz glasses of water a day. If you don’t drink a lot of water, this might be something that could help your lips feel better.
Tips to drink more water:
- I drink water all day long. Try to make this a habit. Swap out sugary juices or sodas for a cup of water. One at a time!
- For us, it helps that we have two Brita filters in rotation at any given time, so I am never low on freshly filtered water.
- I have a cup (technically two that I rotate so one is always full, see picture above) that I drink out of with a straw. I don’t know why, but this makes is super easy to take sips here or there then before I know it the entire 32 oz bottle is empty and I am onto the next cup!
- Keep track. If this is something that you really want to make a habit maybe give yourself a check mark with every glass you finish. If you stick to it, you will form a habit before you know it.
Stay hydrated people! Being hydrated is important to your body in general, not just for lip care.
Until next time, plant nothing but love.
