Looking to unlock soft, smooth lips this season but dealing with dry skin is getting in your way? Well, you’re not alone. There are so many factors that can lead to dry skin like harsh weather conditions, dehydration, low humidity, which cause your lovely lips to lose moisture and become dry.

Dealing with dry, chapped and cracked lips is no fun and unfortunately, it’s par for the course when it comes to caring for your precious pout. If you’ve been trying to figure out ‘how to get rid of dry skin on lips?’, ‘why are my lips always dry and peeling?’, or ‘which lip care is best for daily use?’, look no further! Vaseline has got you covered with some top tips on the best lip care for dry lips, to help you relieve dryness and restore your lips lustre.

Dealing With Dry Lips

Just like when you experience dry skin on your body that can begin to crack, become flakey and cause discomfort, when you’re dealing with dry lips, it’s much of the same. Dry lips can become chapped, cracked, flakey and begin to peel, causing any mouth movement - eating, speaking, smiling - to hurt. So to put a stop to you having to stress about how to heal and care for dry lips, we’re sharing the best products to help you preserve a perfect pout.

But first, let’s cover some of the dry skin causes to avoid so that you can keep your lips looking and feeling their best.

Causes of Dry Skin on Lips

When it comes to skin, the reality is that anything that strips it of moisture can be a risk factor for skin dryness. So when dealing with dry lips, it’s no different in that there are a host of factors that can sap the moisture from your smile. But here’s a list of the top three factors:

  1. Excessive licking of lips
  2. Dehydration
  3. Harsh weather conditions

Caring for Dry Lips

While factors like harsh weather conditions may be unavoidable, preventing dry lips and promoting a soft and smooth pout is more than possible, thanks to the power of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly.

There’s a reason why Vaseline is a household name when it comes to caring for and healing skin, and locking moisture in, to keep your skin hydrated and happy.
