hi mistyrae! that may not be a luppie thing, but also surely a weather thing. our locally famous tv/radio doctor just did a piece on this a few days ago - "chapstick/lip balm addiction". the more we have on and the often we put it on, the more we lick, making them even drier!
im the type that cant live without my balm!! i have several everywhere because it seems like yours. anyway, i thought i test the doc's (dr. dean edell in teh san francisco bay area) theory, and low and behold, he's more than a bit right! theres a transition period and i felt like my lips where going to crack off. the trick is to not pick/peel at them while this is happing. just leave them alone!. it'll get better!
hope this helps ???
