Dry lips even during summer...

Before I would always have dry lips in the winter but not in the summer. But now it's summer and my lips are still dry! If I don't put chapstick or vaseline on, they eventually start cracking from being so dry. Does anyone know how this could be?

Are you drinking enough water everyday?

Maybe the solution to this problem is as simple as increasing your water intake, how is your diet overall?

Well, it's pretty much the same as it's always been, and I think I might even be drinking more liquids than I did in past summers when my lips were fine.

dehydration is the only thing I can think of too. Other than that get some chapstick.

Personally, I would buy a lip balm with emu oil in it, emu oil forms a protective barrier on your skin which prevents moisture loss and protects against the weather, wind etc. I would also try not to lick my lips as much.
