Chapped lips: To prevent chapped lips you can apply honey or coconut oil to the lips several times a day. Or you can apply fresh cream to your lips for ten minutes. Wash off with tepid water. Always hydrate well with water.

Chapped lips: Drink more water to ensure that you are not dehydrated and use a lip balm or even petroleum jelly (vaseline). Some medications or medical conditions may also be a contributing factor. Therefore consult with your own physician if the first two methods do not help.
