I am currently trying this for 8 weeks now but have intense burning pain. Do any of you have this pain from not putting anything on the lips? This is the part of the "leave alone method" that no one ever mentions. The pain is so intense that it is hard to function at times. I did have bad cracks that went up my top lips that have healed though since putting nothing on the lips. But because of the pain I am thinking of returning to putting some sort of moisture on them and just not manually peeling.
