Why do lips start to stick together when closed for long times?

In: Biology

We use our tongue to keep our lips moist and when we don’t do that, lips lose their moisture- this also happens when we are dehydrated. So when the moisture on the skin of the lips dry up, the left over thin coating which is made up of a sticky substance which comes from the mucus of saliva makes the lips to stick together.
