Re: Can some one use to much chapstick?
Yes, you can use too much Chapstick... or lip balm in general, no matter what brand.
Skin has to breathe, and it can't breathe when coated with wax 24 hours a day. Overuse of a balm or jelly creates a crust on the lips which traps bacteria and fungi creating a state of permanent inflammation. The lips become irritated and the temptation is to apply even more balm, which just exacerbates the problem. To avoid this condition, known as cheilitis, it's a good idea to leave off lip balms and jellies - rather than routinely applying them each morning - so you give your lips a chance to 'breathe' naturally.
