We occasionally see people with dry, cracked, or chapped lips. Cracked lips are a symptom of dry, peeling, or chapped lips. Breaks on the surface may appear, and the lips may become painful and bleed. Chapped Lips are a big problem when the lips become cracked and get cuts. Despite the fact that the seasons are a major cause of chapped lips, many people are more affected than others.

Common causes:

Common causes of cracked lips include: 

  1. Weather: The exposure to cold or dry weather is a common cause of cracked lips. Other than cold weather, hot sun can also cause sunburns, leading to cracked and bleeding lips.
  2. Deficiencies: Water deficiency or dehydration is another common cause of chapped lips. Dehydration is a serious matter and long term or severe dehydration can become a threat to life. If the lips stay chapped for long, they can indicate less intake of water. Vitamin B2 and B3 deficiency also causes chapped lips. These vitamins both soften and heal our lips. Vitamin A and Zinc also play an important role for someone to have chapped lips.
  3. Ailments: Common cold is the most common disease to call for chapped lips. It’s a vial respiratory infection.
  4. Personal Habits: Continuous licking of the lips, and breathing through the mouth are those personal habits that can lead to having chapped lips.
  5. Consumption: Alcohol intake and chapped lips are friends because alcoholics are deprived of B vitamins, the ones that heal our lips. Eating lots of flour products like bread, pasta, cereal, crackers and, waffles etc can cause chapped lips because they are deprived of B vitamins.

Preventing cracked lips:

  1. Regularly applying lip balm
  2. Using sunscreen when spending time outdoors
  3. Drinking plenty of water to stay away from dehydration
  4. One of the best foods is egg yolks. Egg yolks have the B vitamins, the vitamin A and also, Zinc so that's what is mostly recommended.
