I have dry skin and chapped lips, is there any way that swimming in chlorinated pools all my life had any effect on my natural oil production?

In brief: Maybe from UV light

The uv light rays in sunshine cause damage to skin.
Lips don't have a thick skin covering, so may be more vulnerable to the sun. A dermatologist can evaluate and make some recommendations for lip care from this time onward. Also, one should be sure he or she is not having a reaction to any of the ingredients in lipsticks or lip balms.
