What Causes Chapped Lips - A Short Science Lesson

The temperature is supposed to dip well below freezing at my house tonight. There is even the possibility of snow flurries in the forecast. I welcome the cold and snow because I like to ski. I'm not so crazy about the chapped lips that I get every winter. Perhaps you and your students feel the same way.

What causes chapped lips? What can you do to prevent your lips from chapping, besides using lip balm? The answers to those questions and more are found in a new Brain Stuff video titled What Causes Chapped Lips? The video is embedded below.

Applications for Education
I appreciate videos like this one because they address questions that many students are naturally curious about. This video can be brought into part of a larger health lesson on the importance of hydration.
