You know that sore and irritated feeling when you have a cold or hayfever, and have chapped skin between the nose and lip area? It’s equally painful for kids, which is why Letibalm, a winter favourite for adults and children, is always in our drawers as it’s excellent at soothing, repairing and protecting the skin around the nose and lips that can become sore or chapped when you frequently blow the nose.
It’s the only product formulated especially to care for this delicate area and contains active ingredients to calm the skin.
We’re giving away two Letibalm Nose and Lips Repair hampers worth more than R350 each, which will include:
- new Letibalm Junior Fluid (for 1 year and older),
- Letibalm Paediatric Balm (suitable from birth),
- regular Letibalm Fluid,
- and original Letibalm.
Letibalm’s tips to prevent and treat chafing on the nose:
- Use the correct wipe – soft tissues or toilet paper, ideally infused with calendula or aloe vera, as these are kinder to the skin. Pat, rather than wipe, and avoid wet wipes which may contain fragrance or chemicals that could further irritate the skin.
- Build a barrier – apply a balm, ointment or barrier cream to form a protective ‘seal’ over the skin. Letibalm is specifically designed to protect and repair the delicate skin around the nose and lips, with natural and active ingredients including ancient healing herb centella asiatica, nourishing cocoa butter and vitamin E. Apply regularly, several times a day, including before and after each time you blow your nose.
- Keep the nasal passages moist – use a saline spray or homemade solution made with a cup of cool, boiled water and half a teaspoon of salt to flush the nose. Thinning the mucous will mean you blow less often.
- Get steamy – steam helps relieve congestion and also moistens nasal passages. Sip hot, steamy soup and herbal teas throughout the day or give yourself a steam bath. Place your face above a bowl of steaming hot water and put a towel over your head to create a ‘steam tent’.
- Up your fluid intake – drinking plenty of water and herbal teas helps hydrate your skin and nose from the inside.
