When wearing lipstick, apply a protective lip balm underneath your lipstick. Reduce smoking as much as possible. Smoking dries out the skin, making your lips more likely to get chapped. Drink plenty of water. Dehydration can be a cause of dry and damaged lips. Adequately hydrating your body prevents the desire to lick lips, helps to soothe existing lip skin conditions and serves as a preventative measure against future lip problemsLip gels, balms or lipsticks that contain alcohol will usually make your chapped lips feel even dryer and more painful. Apply moisturizer before bedtime. As helpful as daytime moisturizers are, lips can become dried out overnight if you sleep with your mouth open. Applying agents such as Shea butter, sunflower seed oil or castor seed oil can nourish your lips overnight and help you avoid waking up to cracked lips. Lastly, use a humidifier in your home, especially at night. This is an effective way to keep your lips moisturized.
