Although winter is behind us, a lot of people still struggle with chapped lips. However, the culprit is not the wind nor the cold, but one detail that you are not aware of.
Probably, as everyone else, you begin your day with a cup of coffee or tea. However, dry lips with peeling skin are the first sign of dehydration while coffee and tea contain caffeine, a strong diuretic that significantly speeds up the removal of liquids from the body. Therefore, it is a better option to intake enough water and to have breakfast before you drink your coffee. Ideally, you should completely decrease the intake of caffeine beverages in order to avoid dry and chapped lips.
