Why Do My Lips Get Chapped?
If your body is lacking in iron, Vitamin B and fatty acids this can play a role in lip’s scaling and cracking.
It is vital that you take a multivitamin/mineral supplement every day to protect against deficiencies that may be causing your chapped lip, and you can improve your ‘good fats’ by eating oily fish and nuts.
I know this is not an easy habit to break but, you must stop licking your lips. Saliva carries digestive enzymes that break down the lipid barrier and cause further aggravation to you dry lips, leading to soreness and inflammation.
Lip Balm Essential Ingredients:
Beeswax, shea butter, and petrolatum are the right ingredients to look for as they help to seal water inside the lips, helping to stop and repair chapping. Coconut, jojoba and almond oils are good moisturizers. Ideally opt for items that are free of flavor, fragrance, and parabens, you should also avoid anything that stings or tingles after you apply, such as menthol, as it can aggravate.
Protect, guard, shield! Here is probably the most important thing you can do for your lips. Lips are sensitive to sunburn since they don’t have melanin, the pigment that helps to protect skin from the sun. Lip cancers are becoming all too common, so it makes sense that your balm or lipstick contains an SPF in it, and this is for summer and winter use.
Matte lipsticks can be very drying on lips, so use them sparingly when you have sore, chapped lips. Use a lipstick which doubles as a balm instead.
So, which lip balm will be your lip saviour this Year?

This lip balm restores healthy looking lips and intensely hydrates. It forms a protective layer of moisture on your lips, softens, soothes, and conditions. The one draw back with this lip balm is that is doesn’t have any SPF, that being said, due to how good it is at replacing moisture and making lips feel great again I get around that by using another lip balm with SPF when I go out, and I have no regrets, my lips stay in perfect condition.
I think this lip balm is incredible! It moisturizes so well and acts as an excellent primer for lipstick. Usually, I would need to remove my lipstick at some point during the day, add another coat of lip balm and then re-apply but that is something I didn’t have to with this. I think this lip balm is incredible and I would recommend it!

Hi…I have dry lips all year round therefore always looking for something to help prevent them from becoming split or sore! As you say licking then becomes a bad habit.. I purchased Uvistat and can also say it’s a lip screen I now use all year round. It keeps lips moist as well as protection from sun damage. I think your post has also highlighted a very important point about low iron/B vit and dry lips which my mum has had for some months.
Hi, yes it is very important to monitor iron & vitamin levels, make sure they are checked by your GP and follow any advice accordingly. The Ameliorate Intensive Lip Treatment really is very good at hydrating dry lips and I cannot recommend it highly enough if you suffer with dry lips and the Uvistat is the perfect partner for when going outdoors to give that much needed protection.
Hello Jo I found this enlightening about the different products for dry lips as I have suffered for years with dry lips, and tried numerous different types of lip balm without much joy!..I can say Uvistat sp50 helps when I am out by day to protect them and stop them drying out, and Ameliorate Intensive Lip Treatment have given me a lot of relief and comfort to keep them moist….I wouldn’t have found the Ameliorate Lip Treatment had I not come across your site therefore I will be a regular reader.
I work in an office with air conditioning and find that it doesn’t matter how well hydrated I am I still suffer from dry lips, I am dreading the winter and winds which will exasperate the problem! But having read your recommendations of different lip balms & oils to try I am hoping to have found a solution to this problem. I will keep you posted.
Ameliorate Intensive Lip care gets me through the harsh winter months. My lips can become really painful and sore but since using Ameliorate winter hasn’t been such a nightmare for my lips, highly recommend.
