2) Lip ointment - may be Bad
Everyday fragrances found in numerous products can cause dry lips with some people. You don't have to touch these products directly with your lips to cause them to become dry; just being around the fragrance may be the cause. If you suspect fragrances are causing you dry lips, stay away from using perfumes, body sprays, deodorants, scented candles, scented plug-ins, aerosol air-fresheners, car air-fresheners, and anything else scented or containing fragrances. If you encounter a fragrance, simply drink some water and lick your lips, using the water to remove the fragrance and to remoisten your lips. Avoid using unwashed hands to wash your lips as they may contain fragrances or others chemicals that can further cause drying. Read the ingredients label to find out if the product in question has an added fragrance. Just remember: unnatural substances can cause the body to react unnaturally.
Artificial flavors and other unnatural chemicals are likely to be in your lip ointment or lip balm. These lip ointments may bring temporary relief, but if you're sensitive to chemicals, like many people are, you might actually be causing your dry lips to persist or even get worse. A more natural and simple lip ointment or balm may be best for you. Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm is a highly trusted lip balm that uses natural and effective ingredients to remedy dry lips.
