How can I cure and/or prevent peeling lips?
In general, peeling lips is due to dryness. Avoid licking your lips as this would worsen dryness. Lip moisturizers or lip balms should be used, especially in the winter. Make sure you are not using irritating cosmetics/lipstick that could contribute to the peeling.
