Cracked, peeling lips are certainly not uncommon at this time of year. You have to take into consideration that your lips, unlike your skin, don’t contain any oil glands so they are more vulnerable to dryness. That’s why it’s important to take steps to keep them well moisturised.
I’d suggest opting for an ultra-hydrating lip balm and, at least until the issue has been resolved, stay away from cosmetics like lipstick and gloss. Jan de Vries offer a number of excellent lip balms on their website with brands ranging from Burt’s Bees to John Masters to Dr Haushka so I would definitely check them out.
In the meantime, avoid licking your lips too much and make sure you’re staying hydrated. Hopefully, with regular and consistent use, your lip balm should ease the issue.
I hope this information helps,
