I am 24 years old. I work in an office and interact directly with both coworkers and clients all day long. No one has commented on my lips, I believe mainly because I keep them under control well enough that they don't get the chance to look terrible most of the time. This means exfoliating them every 1-2 days as necessary. As I said, the aquaphor comes in handy both for masking the condition and for making the exfoliation easy and painless.
