Around the winter time the cold brisk air can be very drying to skin, add the moisture from your mouth and the hot air coming from your breath can cause an unseen condensation around your mouth. This is a terrible combo for the suffers; dry and chapped around the lips and at the corners of the mouth. not only is it sad to see your skin flaking but, it can be quite painful too. Let’s say you’ve already tried a moisturizer and it didn’t work. You then tried olive oil and that helped heal a bit but you still need a little more moisture.
Here’s a tip in action for you. Get an avocado, cut it open and remove the green stuff. Mash it up and add a little bit of olive oil to the mix. Pat some warm water on the dry area, don’t dry. Apply the mixture on the area and let sit for 20 minutes. Put the unused mixture in the refrigerator for next time.
After the 20 minutes rinse off with water only. lightly pat dry with a soft cloth or tissue. If skin starts to feel tight again apply moisturizer or olive oil (doesn’t burn the skin) to skin and let soak in completely. You can repeat this process once a day several times a week till skin heals. The avocado penetrates through several layers of skin appose to other things that only go a couple layers deep.
If the skin burns or is cracked and broken, using an antibiotic cream can prevent infection. Call your doctor if skin becomes red, swollen or broken from being chapped, you may need medical assistance for healing skin.
