What causes dry and chapped lips? Dry and chapped lips are more common than you might think. We have all encountered this at some point in our lives and we have the perfect solution for you.

Did you know that the skin on our lips is much thinner than on other parts of our body? Below are some of the common causes of dry and chapped lips.

  • Winter weather conditions may cause dry and chapped lips

With colder winter weather approaching the dry air and windy conditions are common culprits behind chapped lips. The dry weather sucks the moisture out of your lips to ‘help add moisture’ to the environment and the wind just add to the problem by increasing the evaporative water loss.”

  • Summer weather conditions may cause dry and chapped lips

The skin on your lips is extremely sensitive particularly in extreme weather conditions making them more prone to sun damage. Frequent sun exposure in the summer can also worsen the condition.

  • Excessive licking your lips may cause dry and chapped lips

Licking your lips may feel good, but it won’t help in the long run. When lips get dry, they can feel tight and might even crack and sting. Be conscious of this habit, and ask others to point out when you are doing it so that you can actively work on quitting.

You might not even be aware that you are licking or even pulling on your lips especially if they are dry and flaky and these habits can worsen if the skin on the lips is unusually dry.

  • Dehydration may cause dry and chapped lips

Dry lips could be a sign of dehydration because lip skin is very thin and has no oil or sweat glands. Water loss through the lips is actually 3 to 10 times greater than through the skin on the face or other skin on the body.
