We all feel like a prisoner to our red, inflammed, generally nasty lips. It is a debilitating condition. I have had this curse on my lips for 15 years and I am on the verge of a psychological meltdown.
Interestingly, I have my very best results on Aquaphor. However, it doesn't heal my lips. It just makes it easier to gently exfoliate them with water. I honestly don't know how I would have made it the last 15 years w/o Aqyaphor or Vaseline Lip Therapy. They (1) make it easier for the lips to peel and (2) keep them moisturized during the day.
