    Cracky lips is an actual problem, especially when it becomes cold outside. Cracks from cold are much worse for me than when it is hot outside, what about you?

    During the winter months my lips are in terrible condition. They are always dry and the skin peels off. In summer I don`t feel that something is wrong with my lips at all. I think it depends on the organism.

    My experience showed that the problem of cracky lips depends not on the weather but on the absence of necessary vitamins. Lack of them leads to dryness of skin.
