Dry/sun/wind/licking: Chapped lips? Hydrate well- water is best. You can apply lip balms with beeswax base or oil base creams. Remember that lips require solar protection just like your skin – apply & reapply balms or creams with a minimum spf of 15. Going skiing? - protect from sun & windburn by covering with a scarf or a ski / snowboard face mask with visor. Dry air? - use a humidifier. Try not to lick your lips!See 2 more doctor answers
Peel and chapped lip: By its nature, the peel removes older damaged skin. It reconstitutes from deeper skin structures. The new skin is often delicate, tender, and dry at first.

Medicated ointments may be the cause irritation and inflammation.

Before going out in cold, dry weather, apply lip balm w/sunscreen.
