  1. I know there’s not actually a cure for it but what recommendations do you have for battling it. It’s something that’s always been a struggle for me no matter what I use. Help!
  2. Get your hands on the ‘Refresh and Prep Lip Scrubber’ from Sephora! So gentle but works SO WELL paired with any lip scrub. That thing is a life saver!

    For balms I cycle between the Sol De Janeiro lip balm and the Bite Balm or Lip Mask.

    You also might have luck with emu oil lip balms. You can get them on Amazon. They have a ton of great reviews, but didn’t end up working for me.
  3. lucas papaw. i dont know where to get them outside australia, tho
  4. Laneige lip sleeping mask at night and aquaphor during the day.
  5. Aquaphor, fixes all!

  6. I slather Homeoplasmine before I go to bed and it helps! My lips are smooth again when I wake up. One of my best buys when I was in France but I have seen it in on Amazon.
  7. I second the Laneige lip sleeping mask. Love it.
  8. I sometimes use the ‘sleep mask’ as a gloss during the day as well, it’s good IMG_1710.JPG

  9. I like Smith's Rosebud Salve (comes in a round tin). Also, drinking lots of water is important - at least for me I find that it helps.

    Wow! I’ve never seen this... what’s in the ingredients list? :heart:Hi

    As another poster said drinking water and generally eating healthy foods improves skin Hydration in general. I would also avoid long lasting lipsticks which are incredibly drying. A vitamin e capsule pierced and oil applied to lips before bedtime or with some hydrating lip tint should do miracles.
  11. You need to drink more water.
  12. Dr PawPaw balm is amazing! hydrating doesn’t feel greasy or sticky and does the job.

  13. When I worked in dermatology, one of the doctors recommended a lip balm with hydrocortisone. I can't remember the name of it, but i have found that Dr Dan's makes one. It is sold on the dermstore online and on Amazon. It is very effective in healing cracked, dry lips. It is also said to be hypoallergenic. I have also found that any lip balm with shea butter works well for me. Aquaphor may work well, but some Aquaphor products contain an antibiotic, and I had a reaction to the cream.
