What is Dry and Chapped Lips ?

Home Remedies for dry chapped lipsChapped lips or Cracked lips is a condition whereby the lips become dry and possibly cracked. It may be caused by the evaporation of moisture. Often the lips become dry because the layer of oil that is naturally produced by the body to coat the lips is removed or is lacking. Causes vary, but the most common cause of chapped lips is due to cold weather conditions.

Dry and Chapped Lips Causes:

  1. Cold weather
  2. Dehydration
  3. Certain vitamin deficiencies
  4. Exposure to wind, sun, and cold, dry air
  5. Obstructed breathing, such as in allergic rhinitis, or sleep apnea that can force you to breathe through your mouth
  6. Certain medications, such as those used to treat acne

Dry and Chapped Lips Tips:

  1. Avoid any gel, balm, or lipstick that contains alcohol or petroleum products - they for sure will worsen the condition and will make your chapped lips feel even dryer and more painful.
  2. A good rule is to put on your lips only edible ingredients (in other words, if you cannot eat it - do not put it either on your lips or on your skin!)
  3. Abstain from eating any hot, spicy, or salty foods for as long as your lips are still dry, cracked, and painful
  4. Avoid going outside if the weather is dry and windy. If you must venture out, use a generous amount of natural oil to protect your lips.
