    This is odd, but over the last 5 days ive had dry lips and they've been pretty dry...what can this be the result of? Im going now in 10mins to local pharmacy to get some lip balm because my lips aren't behaving themselves at the moment - just odd that all of a sudden i am having lips that are cracking, very dry etc...

    it's coz it's cold and the weather's dry.happens to everyone.try slicking on loads of lip balm when u go to bed at night.conditions the lips so they're softer n less cracy n stuff in the morning.also try using lip balm n drinking water when ur lips feel dry and chappy.

    wizard, do you smoke? It could be windburn or just the sudden cold snap!
    Blistex in the little pot works a treat, but Vaseline also works too.
    Honey too, but don't lick it off

    Licking your lips makes them dry, as does the weather. Try vaseline or something.

    nah i don't smoke - well i've just purchased some lip balm, so hope this does the trick - it must just be the cold weather.

    Thanks...

    Oooh, you know what is so annoying. Mouthguards, Dont wear mouth guards if you want to keep your lips all soft and supple and luvly. I have lyk loadsa trouble wiv keeping my lips not bleeding and then i go and wear a stupid mouth guard in a fight which sticks to my lips and tears them all up.
