  1. What causes dry lips?

    If you’re looking to put a stop to dry, chapped lips, it’s important to know what causes them. Here’s a quick guide to why your lips might be dry.

    Our lips are different from the rest of our skin — they don't have any oil glands, which means they're more susceptible to drying out. The skin of our lips is also among the most delicate and fragile on the whole body.

    One of the most common causes of dry lips is simply not drinking enough water. That’s because lips, just like our bodies and the rest of our skin, need hydration. So, make sure you’re drinking at least 2 litres of water each day to keep chapped lips at bay.

    The weather and environment can also wreak havoc on our lips. Cold, dry air can zap the moisture from your lips, leaving them feeling dry and cracked. Similarly, exposure to the sun and wind can also lead to dryness.

    To ensure your lips stay plump and nourished all year round, use a hydrating lip balm with ingredients like vitamin E or shea butter. This will help shield them from environmental stressors and lock in moisture, improving the overall feeling and appearance of your lips.
