Wonder why do lips chap and peel? Read on the common causes of dry, chapped lips and find out how can you get your plump and smooth lips back.
Dry lips can be caused by a number of factors: chemicals from makeup products, being for a long time in a dry and cold environment, eating very salty dishes, overexposure to the sun or even kissing outside in a windy weather.
Avoid flavored lip balm - which may tempt you to lick your lips even more.
If you're stressed and notice yourself doing it, try to break this habit and chew on some gum instead.
You might think you'll get rid of the dry skin from your lips, but scrubbing them with your regular face scrub can reduce the natural moisture retention capacity of your lips.
