Lips are very sensitive and the cooler, dry air to Autumn can dry out your skin and lips. The skin on your lips is fine and doesn’t contain the natural oil glands that other areas of your skin has.
One of the unfortunate side-effects of some chemotherapy is mouth ulcers and sore lips. Check your lips daily looking for cracks, sore spots on lips that could be cold sores or ulcers. They can just appear suddenly especially after a night’s sleep.
Keep your lips moist and feeling good. Lip balms are ideal to help prevent your lips from drying out and cracking. We add a Burt’s Bees Beeswax lip balm to our kit for cancer case. This natural lip balm is loaded with coconut and sunflower oils, rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids, to nourish, condition and soften lips. Beeswax seals in hydration. They added peppermint oil for a refreshing tingle.
Another tip is to keep a water bottle spray handy or suck ice to keep your mouth moistened.
Consult your medical team if your lip problems continue.
