Our expert says:
common reasons for chronic dry lips could be:
You are taking in too much vit A
You are licking your lips unconsciously
You sleep with an open mouth due to blocked nose or snore
You are allergic to nickle ( paperclips), phenyl salicylate in lipice, sodium lauryl sulfate in toothpaste
You are taking in too much Vit B12 ( contains cobalt)
sometimes it may help to use a low cortisone dose (2% hidrocortisone) cream on the lips but it must please be given under the care of a dermatologist or your GP.
Try changing to another more oily brand of lip moisturizer.
