It is always better to prevent than to cure. Chapped lips can be caused by a number of factors, and many of them, such as being for a long time in a dry and cold environment, eating very salty dishes, or kissing outside in a windy weather ;) , can be avoided or at least minimized.

Other causes of getting chapped lips may be due to the thyroid hormone imbalances or B vitamins deficiency, which can be cured by a long-term adherence to a healthy, natural diet.

Chapped lips can also be triggered by your hypersensitivity to a new lipstick, in which case throw it into the garbage and never buy any product of the same brand again. No matter what the cause is, if you have already developed chapped lips, use the following tips to cure them as quickly as possible:
1 Step. Goose or Duck Fat …
Our grandmothers used goose or duck fat to facilitate the healing of chapped lips. Those are truly wonderful remedies, so next time when you are making a roast duck with apples, do not discard the fat, but keep it in the fridge as a traditional medicine. If you do not have any, do not despair - coconut oil, or olive oil, or shea butter, will work great, as well. Apply frequently until your lips heal.
2 Step. No Alcohol …
Do not use any gel, balm, or lipstick that contain alcohol or petroleum products - they for sure will worsen the condition and will make your chapped lips feel even dryer and more painful. Use only natural remedies. A good rule is to put on your lips only edible ingredients (this rule also works well for any other body care products, because the skin rapidly absorbs all contents of lotions and creams, both good and bad ). In other words, if you cannot eat it - do not put it either on your lips or on your skin!
3 Step. No Hot, Spicy, Salty …
Abstain from eating any hot, spicy, or salty foods for as long as your lips are still dry, cracked, and painful.
4 Step. Stay Home …
Avoid going outside if the weather is dry and windy. If you must, use a generous amount of natural oil to protect your lips from unfriendly environment.
5 Step. Be patient …
It may take up to a week for your lips to heal completely. In the meanwhile, be sweet and compassionate to yourself and make your boyfriend prepare a comforting dessert with a delicious and relaxing warm drink. Indulge in pampering your taste buds and forget for awhile about your chapped lips! :)

wow.. this really sucked.. nothing worked and its nastey 2 of them are real ones that people are looking for.. but they hell'a dont work

I have really chapped lips for weeks now. I started using chapstick, then BurtsBee's, then carmax. It gets itchy around my lips too and when it gets itchy my lips explodes. The corner of my lips are ripped and peeling. Now it's coming to a dark color. I've never had my lips this worse. What can I do!!!

I too had the problem around my lips. I had spent literally over 50 dollars for every single kind of lip balm known to man, then on another site I read it could be a yeast infection. Sure enough, I tried nystain/triancyilone cream I had left over from my babies diaper rash and BAMB, it is GONE! I have been plagued with this for a year. It took only 2 nights to clear up! yipee!

I have dry lips that peel. What should i do about them b/c of course when it peels, i peel it and it makes it worse! I'm constantly applying Burts Bees or Kiss my Face chapstick but it's not working. How do i prevent them from peeling?

hi i dont really have chapped lips but its around my lips. i usually put blistex on and it works really well but when it wears off there just dry again and it happens alot. and its not the weather either because its spring time. please help and respond thank you!

i have an other way...get some plastic wrap..then apply any kind of chap stick;i prefer cocoa butter, and put it all around the edges of you're lips and you're lips then cover your lips with the plastic wrap and keep it on for about 115-20 minutes and your lips will be softer!
