My lips are constantly dry and cracking and it quite painful if I dont soothe them with non-medicated lip balm. Every couple of days or so large pieces of skin on my lips are noticeably sticking up and I carefully peel them off. This was going on before I started spending a lot of time outdoors on my bicycle but has worsened. If I dont put on some sort of lip balm every hour or so the skin starts coming off.
