Chapped Lips Remedies

The outer area around my lips is dry and somewhat bumpy. What can I do to make it better?

I believe your chapped lips have to do with not being hydrated enough. "8-10 oz" per day is not sufficient to be well hydrated. Think 6-8 glasses of 8-10oz to be well hydrated with little activity....more if you are quite active.

The other thing to note is that your lips adapt or get used to chapstick over time, so that your lips stop producing their own protection and pretty soon you end up needing chapstick all the time.

I was told that alot of lipsticks that say they are "longlasting" actually dry out your lips so if you are wearing them you need to wear vaseline on your lips at night and when you are not wearing lipstick. That's what I do and also drink tons of water!!

I personaly use Avon`s " care deeply" lip balm

I also use vaseline ,just plain old fashion petroleum* jelly.

I also take meds that dry my lips out and alternate between the 2.Good luck.

In the winter time you do need more water then the summer time, but i also found out with dry up skin you should take vitaman B. That is what i use for dryed skin. I get dryed hands a lot & i take vit. B in the morning & night.

I use just a dab of Vaseline and some sugar and it really exfoliates my lips! Give it a try!

I have tried so many lip products. I have used chapstick, vaseline, carmex, cortizone, olive oil, honey, burts bees, shea butter, just plain old water, bliztex, nothing seemed to really work. But then, I went to the doctor. They told me to use Aquafor. It has made my lips so much better. I haven't had a problem with them ever since.

The above poster just really saved me. I've had the problem that my lips adapted to my chap stick,actually I still have the problem. I can't do anything without my chap stick. So my advice is use it only when necessary. When you're lips are fully recovered leave the chap stick on the table.

I have the best chapped lips product, ever. Please go to my site, www.myhealthylips.com and check it out. I had a free sample program but too many tire kickers requested samples. If you are sincere and tell me you are from here I'll consider a free sample for you!

I use Blistex or Lypsyll. I use a cream rather than a chapstick.
