The best tips to treat dry lips and beat the flake.
Invest in a lip scrub and use it one to two times a week or as needed.
This will remove dead skin that's clutching to your lips, and the smooth surface left behind will be a great base to apply your moisturising products.
TIP: if you don't have a lip scrub on hand, you can gently use a toothbrush or towel instead.

There are plenty of lip balms on the market, but for the best results, make sure the product includes SPF in its serum and that it's been approved by dermatologists.

An overnight lip mask is the most powerful lip treatment you can invest in for some intense hydration.
Feel free to use it every night or even during the day if you don't mind having a thick layer of product on your lips.
Good lip masks will lock in hydration and create a barrier to prevent moisture loss throughout the day.

Rosehip oil is a lesser-known trick to infuse real moisture back into your lips, although it works best when layered under a lip balm.
The serum sinks into the skin and creates a supple effect that feels luxurious, and it's a big game-changer.
TIP: After you have used your lip scrub, pat down your lips, then massage in a drop of rosehip oil and finish your routine with an overnight mask.

Besides being a fab purchase to prevent you from getting sick in winter, a humidifier is also great for your skin.
That's because humidifiers keep the air hydrated and they counteract the dry winter air, which makes it less likely for your skin to lose moisture throughout the night.
It will be more powerful than any product you can buy because it is literally removing the issue that's causing your chapped lips in the first place, which is the frosty winter air.
