• What can you do for constantly chapped lips besides always apply chap stick or vaseline?

    It seems like I am using blistex, carmex, clapstick or vaseline all the time but they never really help. Any suggestions
    I knew you guys were going to say drink more water. I think I get plenty though and it goes right through me . I don’t have time to use the restroom 20 times a day at my job.

      This sounds silly but – drink more water — your skin is dry and lips are cracked because you need more water in your system (especially this the winter)
      Oh – and don’t lick your lips too much =)

      drink lots of water. . . . . two weeks ago, my lips were severely chapped and i started drinking lots of water, and of course applying vaseline and in about 5 days, my lips are nice and smooth again.

      What you should do is take an old toothbrush and put Vaseline on your lips then brush your lips with the old toothbrush let it stand for a couple of minutes (5-15) then wipe off.
      See if it helps you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      try aquaphor by eucerin it is very good for chapped lips or extremely dry skin check out their range of products too you might find something that will work for you very well , eucerin products just like aquaphor produts are designed for dry skin conditions and also dry and chapped lips. They should have them at any cvs or any drugstore.

      I don’t like any of those because they are too hard and hard to apply and they don’t really heal your lips very well. Plus they don’t make your lips feel that good anyway. And Vaseline just sounds disgusting. . .

      I like Neauties. It’s very creamy, feels great on your lips, it makes them really soft, and heals your lips fast. Once I started getting the beginning of chapped lips so I put some peppermint Neauties on and they stopped hurting and were healed in less than an hour. Not kidding. This is not a joke. I am dead serious. . . serious as a heart attack. This is a true story. This is really the most wonderful lip gloss ever! I like the cherry and the peppermint the best. The strawberry is good too though. . I just don’t think about it because I just started using it.

      If you are looking for something to HEAL your lips then I suggest the peppermint Neauties. . . it heals extremely fast and temporarilly stops your lips from hurting. . .

      If you are looking to keep your lips moisturized just pick one because they all work great. I think the strawberry is the shiniest though. . . just a little tidbit for you.

      I will never buy anything again. . . It is the best.

      Exfoliate your lips, you do this by putting oil such as olive oil onto your lips, then you use a wet wash cloth to gently rub your lips to get rid of any dry skin, makes your lips much softer and gets rid of ragged bits that you may have a tendency to bite.

      Try treating your lips overnight too, if you mix half a teaspoon of honey, half a teaspoon of lemon juice and half a teaspoon of castor oil and apply it to your lips before you go to bed it should help condition your lips, the honey is also a mild antiseptic so will help fight off infection if you have split lips. If you don’t want to try that then just some oil such as olive oil or coconut oil.

      No licking your lips as it makes chapped lips worse, instead carry a small pot of lip balm at all times to use when your lips are dry, homemade lip balm is good as you can pack it with moisturising ingredients (shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil), or just go for a store bought lip balm – in particular get lip balm with sun protection and try to go for a good quality brand that is particularly thick, so look at tubs rather than tubes or chapsticks.

      Do NOT use vasaline, it causes skin to become dry once the application wears off because it acts as an impenetrable layer that also causes the skin to produce even less moisture than it should, although in the short term it may protect your lips and make them seem moist in the long run it does more harm than good. I suggest for chap stick try something like Burts Bees – nice natural ingredients that moisturise your lips well. . . blistex, carmex, vaseline, all are pretty bad for your lips long-term.
