Thank you for your
question. It may seem like a simple thing, but it’s not really a very easy
answer. Dry lips can be caused by all sorts of things, such as: Repetitive sun
exposure, sunburn on the lips, impaired skin barrier, using soap or soapy
face wash on the face, using lip products that do not agree with your skin,
using a lot of petroleum-based lip products. So as you can see, there can be
quite a number of causes and these that I have mentioned are just a few
possibilities. Your main aim for now should be to repair the skin on the lips.
Something like Bepanthen cream is great to just soothe and comfort and repair
the lips. You can even apply this very thinly under a lip gloss.
