Lip care for dry, chapped lips
- Cracked, chapped lips are often an unwelcome companion during the cold winter months, but they can also become a problem in the summer. The fact that the skin on our lips is structured differently and much thinner than the rest of the skin makes them particularly susceptible to moisture loss and external influences. Our lips often need an extra dose of care. We'll show you how to keep your lips soft and supple and reveal our personal secret for optimal lip care.
Causes of dry lips
Dry, chapped lips can be caused by various factors. Weather conditions such as cold winter air or dry heat in the summer are common triggers, but internal factors also play a role:
- Lack of hydration
- Vitamin deficiency
- Frequent licking of the lips
- Certain medications
In addition to the mentioned reasons, cosmetic products containing alcohol or other drying ingredients can also lead to dryness. Therefore, a careful selection of skincare products is essential.
It is important to identify the causes in order to address dry lips specifically.
