Why do lips become dry?

Friday, 29 April 2016


Your lips have a high number of nerve endings making them super sensitive to touch, warmth and cold. But unlike the rest of your body, lips don’t have sweat glands, which is why they become dry so easily.

These are some of our favourite lip care products:

Blistex DCT

“I suffer from dry lips in the Winter months, and this product really changed my world this Winter.”

Labello Repair & Beauty

“I have a problem with dry lips and this definitely helped.”


Lip Ice Tinted Gloss Range

“This product is effective. It left my lips feeling smooth and soft, while providing it with a subtle shine.”

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream Intensive Lip Repair

“I love applying this to my lips at night just before I go to bed to wake up to softer, beautifully, healthy looking lips.”

    I need to try this – right now I don’t have great looking lips probably due to the weather.

    I always wondered about this and thought it was the harsh Winter cold or the harsh sun and my lips needed SPF. Love using Softlips lipbalm. It’s very effective and soothing.
