Lucas Papaw ointment in a red tube available on the net and trust me the medication I used to be on used to make them crack and bleed but this stuff kept them hydrated for hours. Its a staple in my kit for dry lips.

Keep hydrated.
Rub an old, dry toothbrush over your lips to exfoliate.

I was taught the secret that desert nomads use to stop their lips blistering by my friend Carol 'Caz' Cooney, who is reputed to be the best female off-road driver in the Middle East and has spent many years exploring the Empty Quarter and Djebels of Abu Dhabi and Oman relying on her driving and survival skills.


According to Caz, first thing in the morning before mounting their camels the nomads make their steeds kneel down by tugging with their right hand on the bridle while at the same time gently lifting the tail of the Ship of the Desert  and quickly kissing the little chocolate starfish underneath.



This doesn't cure the problem but it sure stops them licking their lips.

I often put suger in my Vaseline and scrub my lips then scrub with a toothbrush ...then just put some lip balm on! Works for me and I have big lips xx
Failure is not an option <3

I understand where you're coming from as the air in my work is really dry too, and combined with the harsh cold weather my skin gets really dry too! Use a rich moisturiser, exfoliate regularly and use lots of vaseline on your lips - works for me!

I swear by Carmex! 1000x better than vaseline and I dont even need to exfoliate my lips with anything. This is coming from someone who constantly had horrible dry lips and couldnt get away with wearing most lipsticks because of it. Ive got the cherry one that comes in a little pot, plus its dead cheap which is a bonus!
