We've said this before and we're saying it again—hydration is the key to escaping chapped lips in the coming season. By this, we don't just mean drinking at least 3 litres of water every day but we also mean eating water by way of consuming hydrating fruits like kiwis, watermelon and strawberries. Water intake will ensure that your body isn't dehydrated and in turn, keep your lips well-moisturised.
Moisturise all day
Just like you need to internally hydrate your lips, you also need to externally moisturise your puckers. Do this by way of the Lakmé Lip Love. This one's available in several flavours. They all come with a dual core—the inner core contains a creamy inner that moisturises the lips while the outer core gives your lips a burst of colour. Make sure you keep reapplying this to ensure that your lips are soft and pink when the winters arrive.
When you go to bed with lipstick on, you cause some serious harm to your lips. After a point, the ingredients in lipsticks reduce the skin's ability to respire causing the lips to turn dehydrated. So make sure you start now and remove all your makeup including your lipstick before you go to bed.

Cut down on salty and spicy food
If your lips are prone to getting dry, you ought to cut down on salty and spicy foods. That's because spices can easily irritate your lips causing them to become further dry.
Massage your lips
Massaging lips will improve blood circulation and promote cell repair, which will in turn save you from chapped lips. Once in a while massage your puckers with a natural oil so they're well-moisturised.
