5 Things To Be Aware Of If You Suffer From Lip Eczema

      1. Use A Lip Balm To Moisturize The Lips
        Make sure to keep your lips moisturized at all times. A good time to apply lip balm is right after taking the shower or when you wash your face with a face wash, as this is when it is better absorbed in the skin. And make sure that the balm is free of fragrance as most fragrances used in lip balms work as allergens causing rashes and flare-ups on the lips. Choose a lip balm with a shortlist of ingredients, that way you will get to narrow down the risk of flare-ups from potential allergens.
      2. Avoid Using Cheap Makeup Products
        Be aware of your makeup products. Avoid using cheap and chemical-loaded lipsticks that may be triggering lip eczema.
      3. Get In The Habit Of Reading Labels
        It’s a good habit to get to know what’s in the product that you’re interested in buying. This is especially helpful in cases of allergic lip eczema. Reading labels prevents you from getting products that may be carrying potential allergens.
      4. Avoid Licking Your Lips
        Lip licking usually happens when the lips are dry and chapped. However, the relief provided by this act is short-lived and makes the problem far worse. The digestive enzymes present in saliva can cause more damage to chapped lips, ultimately resulting in inflammation around the lips.
      5. Be Mindful Of Your Habits   There can be several reasons for developing lip eczema, it can be triggered due to smoking, stress, pollen, eating certain foods, respiratory infection, being sensitive to hot or cold temperatures. Make sure to check if your habit is triggering it and then proceed with changing it.
