· Chapping : To Prevent Treat, Apply Balm daily so that it slightly overlaps the edges of the lips. Look for a balm with sun protection, vitamins A, C Or E, And AHAs.
· Splitting : Cracks often occur after sleeping in dry air. To prevent this, be sure to apply balm for going to bed, and use a humidifier.
· Lipstick Blending : This Begins as the skin around the mouth loses collagen and elastic tissue age, or is aggravated by smoking. Using a waxy lipliner to outline lips will help contain your lipstick with line. When cosmetics no longer help, the more permanent (and pricey) solution is to have collagen injection to fill cracks.
· Cold Sores: Caused by viral infections, these look like blisters or open scabs. To avoid reinfection, use cotton swabs to apply lipstick while sore is visible.
