Compared to you all I don't know much about coffee but I am truly a skin and beauty geek, so here I can reply.

No coffee doesn't dry out your skin. Caffein is good for the skin and is a skin care ingredient in many skin care products. Left over coffee is also a very good skin scrub.

But cold weather is horrible on skin. That is definitely what is drying out your lips. Get a very fat and rich lip balm - that will do the trick.

Anytime :) I would get a proper lip balm instead of the pure oils. I don't know what is available downunde but something with a lot of mineral oil and lanolin. That's pretty standard and should be quite cheap.

Good luck - take good care of your skin in that weather, that is horrible for skin!
