Winter comes, and the lipbalm comes out. If, like us, you get instant chap as soon as the autumn leaves come out, you may well be wondering why your lips react to colder weather.
Your lips get chapped because they get dried out. In the winter the air is colder. Cold air isn’t able to hold moisture as well as warm air, so it’s naturally dry out.
Your lips don’t have oil glands like the rest of your skin, so they’re prone to getting drier, additionally, drier air, especially moving drier air is more able to suck the moisture right off of your lips (and skin). Similar to how a fan can keep things cooler by encouraging evaporation through moving the air.
This is actually how sweat works…in the winter it can really dry you out and make you colder, though.
If you lick your lips it can make it worse because the cold, dry air will suck that added moisture off. Lip balm will seal moisture against your lips and protect it from the elements.
