Re: Chapped lips
do u think using carmex or vasiline every day would make The problem worse? or are There any better options?[/QUOTE]
I think it would make it worse from my experience. I have been using lip balm for a long time (chapstick, carmex, burts bees)almost every day and my lips have always been dry and cracked for years. I tried all the advice people gave me (don't lick your lips, drink lots of water, take vitamins, use vaseline before you go to bed, etc.) but nothing seemed to work. I then saw this lip treatment product called Labbri lip treatment in this month's Allure Best of Beauty issue and decided to look into it more. I found out that a lot of lip balms just coat your lips so your lips end up just drying up even more because moisture and oxygen can't get in. This product says that it doesn't coat your lips - instead it absorbs into your lips so your lips can get moisture and heal. I like that it uses all natural ingredients but the amazing thing is that there are only 4 ingredients in the entire product! And amazingly it's been working much better than anything else I've used so far. My lips can be so dry that the skin is peeling off but after I put it on, I've noticed my lips are soft and smooth within an hour or so. I've only used it for a week and and my lips are much better now and I don't need to use lip balm anymore - I've heard stories that companies put chemicals in lip balm to make them addictive and now I think they may be true because I've been using lip balm for so long and I never realized it wasn't making my lips better. If your lips are really bad like mine were, you might want to give this is shot.
