Step 5

Keep your lips out of direct sunlight as your lips do not have a lot of melanin in them and are prone to sunburn. Develop good habits and don't smoke or lick your lips as it can redden them and cause them to become chapped. Avoid biting your lips as it can damage the only protective layer of skin they have.
