DRY LIPS FACTS

If you are not drinking enough water and other fluids, your lips may become dry. According to experts, dry lips may be the earliest signs of dehydration, because the skin on the lips is thin and needs water to stay healthy and alive.

TIPS TO CONSIDER:

1. Pay attention to your lips. If they start to feel dry or itchy, apply a lip balm early.

2. Avoid licking your lips. People sometimes lick their lips to reduce the feeling of dry lips, but saliva actually worsens the situation.

Stay hydrated this winter and remember to speak to your trusted Doctor at your nearest Peermed.
