now what do you all think abotu this theory..... a friend once told me that some lip balms work against you... in other words your lips become dependent on the moisture the blam provides and you need more and more and more.... so you buy more and more... she used the aveda lip stuff as the example.... i have not found this to be true but funny enough my husband and I were in colorado and the air is so dry there and we were both chapped as hell but ever since then he has been chapped and uses that burts wax that he started using in vail but I was not using it.. he cannot be without the stuff and i am fine... ??????
I was on medication that made my lips EXTRA DRY.. always cracked and once I strated using Pocket Vaseline . If ur in LOndon, boots (chemist) have them, they're pocket sized... and they're obviously not sticky :P
All of the above mentioned products are great. What I find helps me though also in conjunction with using a lip balm is to soflty exfoliate away the dead dry skin. I usually do it in the shower with a soft washcloth usually like every other day. This seems to help loads.
I've heard the theory about lip balms working against you. I'm kinda suss of the Hemp Bodyshop one that I have been using. But have just re-found Blistex which is FAB, my all time fav. Also AndiMAC's suggestion of exfliating seems to help. My friend just suggested using your toothbrush in the morning when your brushing (might be a bit rough thou...). I'm set to give it a go so will keep you posted.
