If you are in a windy area for a time, this will also make your skin feel less supple after a while. An ointment made from pawpaw can help with this condition.
Dry, cracked lips are usually painful. At the very least, they are uncomfortable. At worst, they make it difficult to concentrate on ordinary tasks, both because of the sensation and the feeling that it negatively affects a person’s appearance. Pawpaw, which is also known as papaya, has been used for many years in Jamaica to quickly heal broken skin and it can help with bruised lips.
There are cases where dry lips are due to underlying medical conditions. If you notice that you constantly have problems with this despite using recommended treatments, you should discuss it with your doctor. For example dry lips, red eyes and fever are signs of Kawasaki disease.
People who lack the required amount of Vitamin A and several other vitamins in their diet may have problems with their skin. Certain medications can also cause this problem in men and women. Speak to your doctor if you notice that your skin is changing in any way after you start a new course of medicine.
Pawpaw ointments such as Lucas’ rely on the healing properties of papaya. Jamaican papaya is rich in papain and quickly removes dead skin cells. That is why wounds heal more quickly when a poultice containing papaya is applied to a cut on the body.
Good papaya ointments are not just good for healing chapped lips. They can also be used to quickly heal raw spots on your nose if you’ve been rubbing the skin there because you have a cold. If you or your family members get small burns, cuts or bruises every now and again, this is a handy product to keep in your home.
