  • i have eczema, and extremely dry skin (so much so that about 2 minutes after a shower i have hives all over my body due to the dryness, and my skins reaction). needless to say i have trouble with my lips, so here is what i do.at night after I shower, or lay a hot wet rag on my lips for about 10 minutes, i take (weird i know) a heavy skin rasp (like for calluses) and gently get all the dead dry skin off.. it will make them feel a little raw and sore, but the dead skin will be gone to help. just before bed, i coat my lips with honey, which seals in mosture, and also is a strong antibacterial.when i wake up in the morning, i do a few good coats of vaseline..at that times my lips are soft... and then the rest of the day i hit them hard with carmex.. all day long..seems to help with mine. i suffer even through the summer.
