I get them when I’m congested- either from a cold or allergies.  If you are breathing through your mouth, they can get super chapped.  I have some luck apply a super thick layer of chapstick right before bed, and the next day its usually not as bad.

I used to have to this problem quite a lot, along with dry, cracking skin on my knuckles. The only thing that helped was Aquaphor. I’d recommend it to anyone. They have several different kinds, including some that are specifically made for lips.

Once my skin healed up after the winter season, I was fine using regular chapstick agian. But I always keep Aquaphor on hand.

I think it might be the cold. My lips have been chapped as can be. I usually use Nivea lip balm, and that clears it up quickly, but I ran out and need to buy more.

Mine are chapped but I think it’s because I have the heat on in the house and they clicked the heat on at work too.  When mine chap I use blistex for a couple of days and it takes care of it.  It really takes care of the sting immediately. 

I also have to carry it with me if I travel anywhere out of the area because the change in environment (humidity, weather, etc.) can cause them to chap.

Use this stuff, it is amazing and it’s all I ever use! It will help your poor lips immediately. And it lasts forever, I have to buy a new one about once a year/year and a half.

I deal with chapped lips all year, even in the summer and the only thing that’s ever worked for me is Blistex Medicated Lip ointment, NOT chapstick.  The blistex gets right into all my nooks and crannies shall we say, it’s the only product that works so well and feels soothing for me at the same time.

Many “chapstick” prodcuts are actually addictive– they soothe the feeling but then they dry your lips more… 

 

I’ve always had good luck with Carmax, but you should probably try something medicated at this point! Good luck…

Vaseline petroleum jelly – my lip saver for the past few years! Put on a thin layer before going to bed. You’ll wake up next morning with super soft lips! If your lips are super duper chapped then it might take a few days to get back to normal. It works wonders! Sometimes in the winter I’ll put on a thin layer before heading outside. It works great as a lip gloss as well. Win-win! 😀

I swear by burts bees. It’s the only thing that doesn’t make my lips “flaky” and make me want to bite at them.

I get chapped skin, hands and lips mostly.  You know about water (n.1!), and my other tips are: use a humidifier in your home, and use Burt’s Bees (just the original peppermint- it is the ONLY thing that helps my lips).
