My lips burning like mad (not sure whether it's dryness?) Watch

    This is very common. Try to REFRAIN from licking them as much as you can, you don't NEED vaseline if you do this but it helps. The outer skin should peel off or flake off after a few days because of the dryness and the pores will start to hydrate your skin more. Trust me, it happened to me like last week. Just remember NOT TO LICK, it's tempting but it will make it worse. Oh and if you need something a little more effective than vaseline, get a portion of chips from a chip shop, the oil from the chips will rub off as you eat them.

      Buy some vaseline, apply it at regular intervals and it'll eventually start to heal.

      Hey presto!
