The most common cause of chapped lips is when lips lose moisture, owing to dehydration, too much exposure to wind or too much sun. Occasionally, chapped lips are a cause of other more serious lip conditions, or a side effect of some medications.

How long it takes for chapped lips to heal depends on how dry and chapped they are. Using the right products, like Aussie’s favourite Dermal Therapy’s Lip Balm, as often as required, means you can see visible results in 1 day.

Some ways to avoid or deal with chapped lips are to drink enough water, make sure your lips aren’t exposed to too much wind or sun without protection, and be careful not to pick, lick or bite your lips too much. Another great thing to use for chapped lips is a dermatologist recommended lip balm for extra hydration.

The short answer is, unfortunately, yes. Since chapped lips are especially common in winter, when your lips are exposed to dry air and colder temperatures, and when your immune system is usually a bit weaker than usual, chapped lips can make you more vulnerable to cold sores and blisters.

You probably notice when you’re sick that you’re not drinking as much fluid as usual, so your skin and body is more dehydrated. This is especially true if you have cold symptoms like a runny nose or congestion, which forces you to breathe through your mouth, therefore creating the perfect conditions for chapped lips.

Winter weather causes chapped lips because the weather is colder, more dry, and there’s often a chilling wind outside. That, combined with the dry, heated air inside, can cause dry and chapped lips.
