What are chapped lips?

Most people get chapped or cracked lips occasionally, where the skin on the lips is dry, rough, or cracked, and bits of skin start to peel. Natural home treatments give immediate relief and also provide support for underlying healthy skin.

The lips do not contain oil glands, unlike the skin on most other parts of body. This makes the lips more prone to drying out and cracking.

Causes of chapped lips

Cheilitis

Cheilitis is a more severe form of chapped lips that some people may develop. It is often caused by an infection after micro-organisms (bacteria, fungi) enter through skin lesions.
