Why do your lips get chapped?
The reason can be found in the structure of the lips themselves. The lips' exposed mucous membrane structure is actually different than other skin. Lips do not have the same protective outer layer, or stratum corneum, found in other skin; nor do lips have the same complement of oil and sweat glands. Sweat glands add moisture to skin, but the lips' only source of moisture is saliva inside the mouth. Thus, harsh winter wind, cold, sun, and dryness-indoors and outdoors-make lips a vulnerable target for chapping.
