Collection: Lip Care for Dry and Cracked Lips

Treat and prevent dry and chapped lips with lip balm.

If your lips are red, dry and stinging, it's often a sign that they lack moisture and protection. Skin irritation around the lips or at the corners of the mouth can also be caused by cold sores, fungus or sunburn.

We guide you to the best lip care for dry and chapped lips to make them soft, moisturised and irritation-free again.

Why do I get dry lips?

Dry lips can be caused by several things. Wind, weather and sunlight are typical factors that can trigger dry and chapped lips. Sunburn of the lips is not uncommon and can be both stinging and painful.

Cold weather during the winter months is also often the cause of chapped, red and dry lips. The cold air dries out the skin - and the lips are no exception. It is therefore important to take care of your lips all year round, as dryness and burning can occur in both summer and winter.

If you have a bad habit of licking your lips - perhaps in an attempt to moisturise them - it can make things worse. As the water evaporates, it leaves your lips even more dry and exposed.

To care for your lips properly, choose a lip balm with a high fat content that keeps your lips protected from drying out.

What is lip balm?

Lip balm is essentially a cream for the lips in a very solid form. This is due to the high fat content that lip balm contains. The fat content is high because lip balm is meant to form a film on the lips, protecting them from moisture loss and external factors that can lead to burning and dryness.

If you suffer from dry lips, chapped lips, or if they are red and stinging, you are not alone. Most people will experience dry lips at some point in their lives, as the skin on the lips is thinner and more delicate than the rest of the body. However, by incorporating good lip care into your daily routine, you can minimise dry lips and other irritation, such as burning and redness at the corners of your mouth.

Which lip balm should I choose?

There are many lip balms on the market, but we recommend one that is based on natural ingredients.

Lip balm with Tea Tree Oil not only moisturises and protects the delicate skin on the lips, but also minimises the discomfort of redness, for example at the corners of the mouth. Tea Tree Oil has a soothing effect on irritated skin, and you can therefore use the lip balm for the daily care of cold sores, fungus on the lips, sunburned lips or similar skin irritation.

Lip balm with Tea Tree Oil is based on natural ingredients and is free from mineral oils. Instead, the lip balm is enriched with natural moisturising ingredients such as Castor Oil and Shea Butter.

How do I use lip balm?

Lip balm is quick and easy to apply, and it's a good idea to take some with you on the go so that you always have some on hand should the need arise.

The lip balm with Tea Tree Oil from Australian Bodycare comes in a 3-pack, so you are sure not to run out or forget your lip care during the day. For example, carry a lip balm in your bag and place one on your bedside table and in the bathroom so that you remember to care for your lips several times during the day. This will minimise and prevent red lips, dryness and irritation at the corners of your mouth.

If your lips are very dry and chapped, you can apply a generous layer to your lips and the corners of your mouth before you go to bed at night, so that the moisturising and softening ingredients can have time to work during the night.

Lip Balm from Australian Bodycare is dermatologically tested and can be used by both adults and children from 3 years of age.

Healing Ground

The story of healing tea trees dates back thousands of years and it originates from the Aboriginal people of Australia. Their legends describe lakes surrounded by tea trees. Falling leaves and twigs from the tea trees leached their essential oils into the water and turned the lakes into antiseptic baths. The local Aborigines used these natural, healing spas to treat a number of conditions, such as skin infection, burns, cuts and insect bites.

They named the land with tea trees “Healing Ground”.
