I am continually getting rough skin on my lips. A bit chapped

Resolved Question:

I am continually getting rough skin on my lips. A bit chapped but not overly. I use lip balm, however, I wonder if I am over using it or if there may be a better solution to this tiny issue.

Welcome to justanswer and thank you for your question.

Well, you should follow these tips-
-Avoid excessive sun exposure
-Avoid going out in dry, cold weather without putting on lip balm or lipstick
-You should try to keep the air in your home humid.

-You should use beeswax and petrolatum (Vaseline) on your lips.

-Rub a slice of cucumber on your lips. This would help cure dry and chapped lips.
-Application of aloe vera gel on the lips also cures a person suffering from dry chapped lips.

-Pure ghee or butter is also beneficial in treating dry chapped lips

You should use these tip-
In a tea spoon of glycerin, add a few drops of honey. Apply this paste on the lips and keep them overnight. This will help to keep the lips soft and smooth.

Hope this helped.
