Why do my lips keep getting chapped and dry?

You are not alone if you have been experiencing dry, chapped lips lately. Lips can become dry for various reasons, including weather changes, dehydration, and exposure to the sun or wind.

As the winter months approach, many of us will notice our lips getting dry and sometimes cracked. Of course, one could blame the cold weather or the heating in your house, but this is not always the reason.

Lips are composed of skin cells that produce keratin protein, just like the skin on other parts of your body. When you lick your lips, your saliva serves as a natural moisturizer in keeping them hydrated. However, the lip area has fewer oil glands than other body parts, so it is more difficult to hydrate. Dry lips are caused by a lack of moisture (water) and dehydration.

How can I naturally hydrate my lips?

Lips with a fine texture and smooth surface need hydration, just like the skin. When lips lack moisture, they become chapped and cracked redness and swelling. In addition, the skin gets dehydrated faster than most people think: it’s so thin that it absorbs 80% of what you put on it – if your skin care product is not moisturizing enough for your skin, think of what it’s doing to your lips.

How can I naturally hydrate my lips? One of the easiest ways is to keep a lip balm in your bag and apply it throughout the day as needed. However, if you are looking for a more natural option, you can do a few things. First, drink plenty of water to stay hydrated from the inside out. You can also try applying petroleum jelly or olive oil to your lips before bedtime. Lastly, eat foods high in water content, such as fruits and vegetables. You can help keep your lips healthy and hydrated year-round by following these tips.

The oil will seal the moisture into your lips, keeping them soft and healthy. Why does this work? Coconut oil is made up of medium-chain fatty acids that are easy to digest. Our skin cells are directly absorbed these fatty acids for instant hydration without causing any harm or irritation. However, it has to be 100% pure coconut oil. Fake oils or other kinds of lip balm will not work for this purpose.
