Chapped Lips After Applying Lipstick?
Why is it that when I put on matte lipstick my lips are cracked, it’s like when I bite my lip, it’s like I want to change my skin
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Unlike glossy lipsticks, matte lipsticks have less water and oil content. The use of this lipstick is actually not really recommended for those who have dry lips, because it can make lips even drier and even cracked and peeling. Complaints can get worse if you get used to sucking or exfoliating your lips forcibly. This is what may have triggered your complaint.
Your lips can also become chapped and peeling due to other causes, for example:
Dehydration, eg due to lack of drinking, diarrhea or excessive vomiting Mouth breathing habits (eg when you have a cold) Smoking or drinking alcohol Side effects of drugs, eg antihistamines, antihypertensives Contact dermatitis (chronic skin inflammation due to contact with irritating or allergenic substances ) Fungal infections Certain diseases, such as seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, etc. You should stop using the lipstick for a while. Avoid forcibly peeling the peeling lips so as not to cause injury or irritation. Increase the moisture of your lips, namely by drinking more, not breathing through your mouth, using lip balm, and wearing a mask when in a polluted environment. Avoid applying anything to chapped lips unless directed by a doctor.
If the above efforts don't improve, don't hesitate to go to a dermatologist and venereal specialist, okay?
I hope this helps.
