Handy tips to soften dry lips

London, Nov 28 : The chilly weather leaves our lips needing moisture. Keep them soft by staying hydrated and buy your lip balm carefully.

Here are simple tips to ensure you have soft and supple lips during winter, reports femalefirst.co.uk:

- Drink plenty of water and increase your intake of B vitamins as low levels can lead to dry and cracked skin.

- Resist the urge to lick your lips - this only makes them sorer.

- Do away with dead skin cells by using a soft toothbrush to help reduce chapping.

- Read the labels. Not all lip balms are the same. Balms or sticks made with mineral oil or petroleum jelly don't moisturise as such, they simply sit on the lips' surface, and may even dry the lips out.
