Top 3 things to AVOID for Lip Eczema

Eczema on the lips, also known as eczematous cheilitis, is a common skin condition that can affect the lips. It is characterized by inflammation, dryness, and cracking of the skin on the lips, often leading to discomfort, dryness, soreness, and pain. Eczema on the lips is usually a chronic condition, unlike regular chapped lips, which are temporary. In order to effectively prevent and treat eczema on the lips, it is important to understand its general causes and adopt the right skincare routine. LEMYKA offers a range of products specifically formulated to address the needs of individuals with skin prone to lip eczema.

Common Causes Include:

  1. Genetic links

  2. Allergens in the environment

  3. Excessive lip licking, biting, scratching

  4. Common allergens such as fragrances, nickel

  5. Loss of lip plasticity due to age or extreme climates (hot, cold, dry)

  6. Irritants found in cosmetics and skincare

Top 3 Things to Avoid:

  1. Avoid extremely spicy and salty foods

  2. Avoid cosmetics with fragrances and harsh chemicals

  3. Avoid licking and biting lips

It is also super vital to adopt a health skincare routine to keep your face clean and moisturized. Here is a simple guide to soothe the uncomfortableness of lip eczema:

Step 1: Use a Gentle Face Cleanser Start by cleansing the infected area using

LEMYKA Gentle Foaming Cleanser. Gently massage a small amount onto the lips,

avoiding any harsh rubbing or scrubbing. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water

and pat dry with a soft towel.

Step 2: Apply Lightweight Lotion After cleansing, apply LEMYKA Natural Healing

Lotion to the affected lips. Take a pea-sized amount of the lotion and gently

massage it onto the lips. Reapply the lotion 1-3 times a day, as needed, to keep

the lips moisturized and protected.
