don't make it worse!!

Using anything containing petroleum jelly such as carmex or vaseline continuously will only dry your lips out more and make them even worse. I found out the hard way. My lips have been severly chapped for the last month due to cold weather. I stopped using carmex 2 DAYS AGO and my lips have improved more than they have in the past month!!

Chapped Lips
suggested by Paul on Sunday, May 4, 2008

Most chapped lips are actually because the saliva has digestive enzymes that "eat" the skin on the lips. Then bacteria takes over, causing the itching and irritation. I've found that balms actually extend chapped lips conditions. The best cure I've found is applying hydrogen peroxide to the lips. Sometimes the lips are cured and silky smooth the next morning.

Just apply milk cream to your lips at bedtime for atleast 15 mins, and then wash it off. This will give a soothing effect, prevent cracks on the lips. If you want to add color to your lips, add a small drop of turmeric to the cream. The colour of lips will be maintained.

I developed severely chapped and dry lips. I discovered a combination of blistex medicated lip ointment spf15 and vaseline to be the best in term of pain relief, moisturizing and promotion of healing. I use this day and night and my lips are slowly but surely coming back to normal.
