Dry and chapped lips

I use lip balm every day and night but I wake up every morning with dry, chapped and sore lips. I don't know what else to try to make them more hydrated. Is there anything you would suggest that I try to resolve this issue?

Re: Dry and chapped lips

Use an unfragranced product - some of the lanolin based products are good. Alternatively nipple cream made for nursing women can be very good for lips. If not better, see your doctor to discuss anti-inflammatory treatment
