As autumn and winter come into our lives, it’s like a magical holiday wonderland replaces the usual landscape and everything seems a bit more jovial! That is, until the colder weather ends up wreaking havoc on our collective comfort. You will probably notice, as well, that the cold months can leave your lips feeling different (and not in a good way). For the lip health information you need, your Riverside dentist offers helpful advice.

Lips Can Become Unwell, Too

Remember that your lips are a part of your oral health. If your lip health is in bad shape, it needs care, so all is well again. As for what you can expect during autumn and winter, you will generally notice a steady decline in your lips’ ability to remain hydrated and comfortable. These seasons are often known for leading lips down a path toward chapping and cracking. Avoid these issues by getting serious about your lip care (Translation: Start using lip balm every day and night and repeat as needed).

You Should Come See Us With Concerns

Maybe your lip cracked due to chapping and it isn’t healing. Perhaps you can’t find any way of getting your smile to feel comfortable again once the drying sets in. Whatever the case, we always suggest you come to see us if you need help. Your Riverside dentist reminds you that such issues are usually very easy to fix, so coming in ASAP is to your benefit.

You Need To Find A Lip Care Treatment You Like

About that lip balm: Safeguarding your lip health during autumn and winter often really does rely on your decision to pamper your lips with extra hydration. As a result, your Riverside dentist always suggests trying out different balms, creams, or ointments until you find something you really like (because reapplication is necessary).
