Chapped Lips - Soothing & Repairing

For the last two weeks my immune system seems to have taken a hit and one of the results has been severely chapped lips. I have never known or had anything like it. I have been barely able to open my mouth, it has felt so tight and dry. My lips have had thick skin peeling off of them and anything that goes near them seems to have stuck like glue. The pain was horrid.

I was desperate for a solution, I tried lanolin based products, my usual balms and nothing worked to improve them. I drunk copious amounts of water in an attempt to rehydrate myself and it all seemed to no avail. Finally, I picked up a little pot of Vaseline Lip Therapy with Aloe Vera and this has been my chapped lips saviour. Instantly soothing it soon got to work softening and repairing my lips back to their usual smooth and luscious self. I also gently buffed my lips to remove the dry skin with a wet flannel (don't pick the skin as you run the risk of infection!)

Vaseline say

Locks in moisture to help lips recover from discomfort

It took about 3 days but I finally got there. My lips are pretty much back to normal now thank goodness.
