So buy lip products that have an SPF for those days you spend in the sun.

Also use lip masks that nourish, soften the lips and make the lips look healthy. Hydrate from the inside out Like your body, your lips also need hydration from the inside out to keep them soft and healthy. Your lips will be the first place on your body to show dryness when you are dehydrated. So be sure to drink plenty of fluids, drink two liters of herbal tea a day, and stock up on water-rich foods, such as cucumber, grapefruit, and watermelon. You can also add lemon juice or chlorophyll to your water to improve hydration.

Like every other season, you can follow a simple lip care tip this monsoon. Many people suffer from rough lip issues throughout the year and if you don’t take steps to deal with it, those cracked and bleeding lips can take away the charm from your face.
