What causes dry cracked lips?
Lips don’t contain oil glands like other parts of the skin. This means lips are more susceptible to drying out and becoming chapped (cracked). Lack of moisture can make the problem worse, whether it’s weather-induced or related to a lack of self-care. Another common cause of chapped lips is habitual licking.
How long does it take for lips to heal?
Lip injuries often heal fast and can be treated at home with simple remedies to reduce swelling and minor bleeding. If you develop a busted or cut lip from an accident or injury, the healing process could range from a few days to a few weeks depending on the severity of the lip wound.
