Chapped and Dry Lips

Lip problems denote gastro-intestinal problems and the remedy lies in addressing the organs of the gastro-intestinal tract. Constant appearance of sores on the lips may also denote ulceration and stagnation of blood. To remedy, the above applies. http://dherbs.com/images/dherbs400x400.jpg
Chapped or dry lips are generally the result of an evaporation of moisture in the body. This is most common in the colder months. Chapped lips appear to be very dry. Other symptoms include:
  • Burning sensation
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Cracks in the skin
  • Peeling of the skin
Cracks and peeling are signs of extreme dryness. When lips are extremely dry, they can be painful and even bleed.

Causes of Chapped or Dry Lips

Chapped lips are generally caused by a lack of moisture. some lesser- known causes of this condition are:
  • Excessive licking of the lips
  • Dehydration
  • Allergies to cobalt or nickel
  • Breathing through the mouth
  • Toothpastes containing sodium lauryl sulfate, which is know to cause drying
  • Dry weather
  • Citrus fruits
  • Excess Vitamin A
  • Certain medications including Accutane, propranolol, or prochlorperazine
Healing Naturally

There are many lip balms and chap sticks available today. However, many of the ingredients found in these widely- distributed products are harmful to the body. Petroleum is a common ingredient in many lip products. Petroleum is derived from crude oil and is found in some of the following products:
  • Gasoline
  • Styrofoam
  • Lubricating oils
Petroleum doesn't allow the skin to breathe and therefore is considered comedogenic. While petroleum in lip balms will help to create a moisture barrier on the lips, it is not a healthy way to alleviate the problem. There are several natural ingredients that will do this in a safe, healthy way. Some natural ingredients for dry lips are:
  • Aloe Vera
  • Vitamin E oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Olive oil
  • Shea butter
Shea butter is perhaps the best substance you can apply to the lips to help prevent them from chapping and to stay moist. Shea butter helps to hydrate the skin cells and restore the skin's elasticity.

DHerbs Solutions

DHerbs recommends switching your current lip balm to a natural moisturizer. There are many natural, organic, and petroleum-free brands available today at natural grocery stores and cosmetics retailers.

Take extra precautions in the colder months or if you are in an especially dry area. Be sure to keep your lips covered and protected from the elements. Remember that the lips are very thin skin and can be damaged easily.

Stay hydrated. By doing so your lips will retain more moisture and will be less likely to get chapped and dry. Water feeds the entire body and is essential to every function we perform.

    Q: I used to smoke weed every day and it made my lips black. Do you have anything to bring them back to normal?

    A:

    The blackness of the lips is simply a consequence for the habit of smoking marijuana. If you become a raw foodist and eat raw foods for 3+ years your lips will lighten up.

    Q: I'm currently on the Full Body Cleanse. It's my 10th day. :) I have developed some sores and tenderness in my mouth. Is this from the cleanse?

    A:

    The mouth sores and tenderness is NOT from the detox, but are symptoms of your body's healing, which the detox has greatly initiated.

    You see, the herbs don't dictate where the emphasis goes (as far as healing goes), the body does. The body knows all the areas of your body that need addressing (emotionally as well as physically).

    Internal skin is skin just as well and the skin is the body's largest organ of elimination, so your body will use whatever channel is available to eliminate waste from the body.

    The mouth is part of the alimentary canal so this situation with your mouth only and simply denotes that much healing is taking place in your colon.

    Mouth sores are only temporary but they do dictate that the mouth's pH balance is too acidic. The mouth is naturally acidic, but it's a healthy acidic (6.8 pH)

    .

    To facilitate healing of the mouth sores, gargle with a little tea tree oil (2-3 drops), hydrogen peroxide (half a teaspoon), and sea salt (half a teaspoon) in some warm water, throughout the day.

    Q: I use the dabur meswak toothpaste and it has an ingredient Sodium Lauryl sulphate is this the same as SLS?

    A:

    If the SLS is not derived from coconut oil TOSS IT! It's toxic! Dabur products are suspect! If the label doesn't tell you where the SLS is derived from, it's chemical-based!

    Q: I had being feeling a burning sensation from my armpit to the backside. It had happen for the past three weeks; the truth is I?m feeling afraid of something personal and feel nausea early morning.

    A:

    Sounds like you're pretty toxic and need to do a good cleanse. Give the Full Body Detox a try! Also, stop using commercial brand deodorants (which could be causing the problem). Use natural deodorant like brands from Alvera (available from Whole Foods Market). Use natural soap brands when washing/bathing, i.e. Kiss My Face olive and aloe soap.

    Hey, what you fear will appear! Stop fearing! Fear comes from ignorance. Read some of our wonderful FREE health articles and free your mind!

    Stay positive! Everything will be okay because everything is okay! Cheer Up!
