Dry, chapped lips are a common issue for almost all of us. If you are tired of dealing with dry and chapped lips for a long time, then we are on the same path. And let us tell you the good news in advance - we have something that will change the way you see lip care. But first, let’s reveal the common causes of dry lips.
Why Are My Lips Always Dry?
As we already mentioned, dry lips are a common concern for many. Even if your skin is oily or normal, and you never experience dry flaky skin on your face or body, your lips can stay dry and chapped for a reason. Lips are exposed to various conditions because the skin on our lips is different from the skin on the rest of our bodies. Lip skin is thinner and more delicate, just like undereye skin, which means it is more susceptible to damage from environmental factors like wind, cold, and sun exposure. Plus, the skin on our lips doesn't have oil glands like the rest of our skin, which means it is not able to produce its own moisture to keep it hydrated. This is why lips are more prone to becoming dry, chapped, and cracked than other areas of the body.
Main Causes of Dry Lips
If your lips are constantly dry even after a few hours after applying a moisturizing product, then the reason could be one of the following:
Dehydration: Not drinking enough water or consuming beverages like coffee or alcohol can lead to dehydration, which can cause lips to become dry and chapped.
Exposure to harsh weather: Cold, dry, or windy weather can strip the moisture from your lips and make them prone to cracking.
Licking or biting your lips: Constantly licking or biting your lips will irritate the skin and cause them to become dry and chapped. Don’t try to “cure” your lips with saliva, okay?
Allergies or sensitivities: Certain toothpaste, lip balm, or food allergies can cause lips to become irritated and dry.
Medical conditions like eczema, psoriasis, or hypothyroidism can cause dry, chapped lips.
Vitamin deficiency: Deficiencies in certain vitamins, such as vitamin B and iron, can cause dryness and cracking of the lips.

A Few Tips to Avoid Lip Skin Damage
Stop licking and biting your lips - this will only worsen your condition.
Drink enough water and look at how your lips change their appearance.
Don’t use very harsh scrubs on your lips: they may feel exfoliating, but they may damage your lips badly.
