    • I drink tons of water daily, I haven’t changed my routine on skin care or toothpaste. My food intake has not changed. I’m not on any medication for anything. So I can’t figure it out frown

    • I was going suggest too little water or too much salt, but you’ve ruled that out.  Did you get them sunburned a little bit?  Not enough kissing going on at your house?  Don’t laugh, it makes a difference.

    • Hi Vikki, I too have noticed the same, not sure what it’s all about though but I plan on asking my doctor when I go to see him next week.

    • I don’t know. That’s the first time I’ve heard of it. Let us know if you discover anything, Vikki or Neicy.

    • Does diabetes affect the hydration of the skin? I’m anxious to know the results of your visit too.

    • i have had this happen to me to. in my case i have let my health get run down.  it does not help that i am going through menopause.  so i have been making extra effort to eat, sleep and exercise for my good health.  i also without fail use use use a lip balm.  for me i need extra pampering and i do take the time out to make sure i do it.  as for lips just apply and apply and apply.  it works for me.  or one other thing go and ask your doctor for a blood test.  see how you are biologically (uuummm i hope thats the right word.)i also find taking one multi vitamin supplement tablet useful.

    • That menopause is a pain in the arse!! Plaspak mentioned the vitamin, that could be a thought...get a blood test done and be sure they check your vitamin levels.  You could be deficient somewhere.

    • I’ve noticed my lips being dry enough to feel rough, which I attributed it to the weather. I usually use Blistex lip balms when I go outside (they have one with sunscreen), but since I’ve noticed the dryness, I’ve changed to their Medex (comes in a tiny blue jar). It’s supposed to replenish and keep moisture, so I tried it. First I took a paper towel and sort of sloughed off the loose, peeling skin, then I applied the Medex. Did it twice at night and once during the day last week. It’s been fine ever since.
