Some tips to get rid of scaly lips:

  • Every day in the morning when you brush your teeth, take out some time to exfoliate your lips also. With a soft bristle toothbrush gently rub your lips for a few seconds. This way, the dead skin accumulated over the lips will be removed. Finally rinse your lips properly with plain water and pat dry them. In case you are not comfortable using a toothbrush, you can opt for washcloth. Wet the washcloth in hot water and then use it to gently scrub your lips so that the dead skin cells get removed.
  • The next thing that you need to do is apply a thin layer petroleum jelly based lip balm to your lips. This will seal in the moisture of your lips and protect them from the outside elements. You must re-apply the lip balm at least two to three times a day to get rid of dry scaly lips. Before going to sleep, you must apply some petroleum jelly on your scaly lips. You can also make a lip balm at home by blending eucalyptus oil with chamomile oil and Aloe Vera in equal amount.
  • One of the reasons behind scaly lips is your lipstick. As lipstick can cause dryness you must not wear lipstick for the whole day. If you need to apply lipstick, always prefer one that comes with extra moisturizing ingredients. Avoid using all day long wearing lipsticks at any cost.
  • Avoid licking your lips as it will not make your lips moist, but the saliva will cause more dryness. At the same time chewing your lips can even lead to bleeding, which can cause infection. Instead of licking your lips it is a good idea to use a lip balm whenever you feel like your lips are getting dry.
  • At times, if you stay in a place which is too dry can also cause scaly lips. This is why it is essential to properly humidify your home so that your lips do not become chapped and scaly.
