Before we explore the prevention and treatment of dry chapped lips, it is imperative you understand the common causes or dry, chapped lips:

  1. Dehydration.
  2. Exposure to cold and windy weather.
  3. Over-exposure to sun
  4. Dry air, low humidity.
  5. Excessive licking of the lips
  6. The use of harsh and/or toxic lip products.
  7. Certain medical conditions and medications.

It is critical you identify the root cause of your dry chapped lips so that you can effectively address your lip issues with the appropriate care.

Tips to Prevent Dry Chapped Lips

  1. Hydration is Key: Your lips do not have oil glands and as a result you need to keep them hydrated. You need to drink plenty of water throughout each day. Water helps to maintain the health of your skin, including your lips. Your body loses water all day long so you need to constantly  replenish your water.
  2. Protective Measures: During cold or windy weather, use face protection such as a scarf to shield your lips from extreme weather conditions. This protection helps to prevent moisture loss as it creates a barrier.
  3. SPF for Protection: If you are spending time in the sun, your delicate lips can easily dry out, peel and get inflamed. A healthy SPF lip product can help to restore moisturization to your lips.
  4. Exposure to Dry Air: If you live in an area that has dry air or low humidity, your lips are prone to be dry due to weather conditions beyond your control. If you find that the air around you is dry, a humidifier could assist you.
  5. Avoid Licking Your Lips: Licking your lips seems like it may relieve the lack of hydration but it can worsen the problem. Saliva evaporates quickly on your lips and dries them out faster. Try and break yourself of the habit of licking your lips to promote healing.
  6. Attention to Ingredients: Some products, including lip products have ingredients that dry out your lips like parabens, eucalyptus and menthol. It is imperative to check the ingredients of the products you purchase.
  7. Be Informed of Medications and Medical Conditions: Unfortunately, some medications and medical conditions can cause dry, peeling lips. You would need to use a clean lip product often (excessively) to keep your lips hydrated.
