Lip Balm for Chapped Lips Often Incorrectly Applied Reports Water and Health Researcher
Date:11/8/2013

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) November 08, 2013

Chapped lips are not life threatening but they can be annoying, unattractive, uncomfortable and difficult to ignore. According to water and health researcher Sharon Kleyne, paraffin based lip balm can help immeasurably to soothe and heal chapped lips but only if applied correctly. Kleyne recently reported on the causes of chapped lips and the proper application of lip balm.

Sharon Kleyne is Founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research, a fresh water and health research, education and product development center. Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, the company’s global signature product, provides a soothing mist of 100% fresh water vapor to instantly soothe dry skin and chapped lips. Kleyne also hosts the globally syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio show on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes.

Chapped lips, or cheilitis, according to Kleyne, are the result of excessive evaporation of water from the skin of the lips. This may be accompanied by inflammation, peeling and cracking. Chapped lips are most likely to occur in winter when the cooler air is not able to hold as much natural water vapor. The forced air heating and cooling in an automobile, blowing directly at the face, says Kleyne, also causes frequent chapping. Other high risk conditions include exposure to wind, sun and dust, and airline cabins where the relative humidity may only be 3 to 5%.

Because the skin of the lips are thinner than body skin, and contain no sweat glands, hair follicles or moisture sealing oils, Kleyne explains, lip skin tends to become dehydrated much more quickly than body skin.    

A basic strategy to prevent chapped lips, says Kleyne, includes drinking at least eight glasses of water a day, in addition to all other liquids, and avoiding prolonged exposure to lip-drying situations. Do not lick chapped lips.

According to Kleyne, there are numerous remedies and products for chapped lips, nearly all of which contain an oil or wax based moisture sealer, plus an additive such as menthol to soothe and cool. Some may contain an anti-inflammatory or anti-bacterial medication.

Lip balm or petroleum jelly, says Kleyne, can be extremely helpful but only if used correctly. Above all, Kleyne points out, remember that lip balm is a moisture sealer only. It helps hold water content in the skin but does not skin water. To obtain maximum benefit, Kleyne recommends replenishing the lip skin’s natural water content before applying lip balm so the moisture sealer has something to seal in.

To re-hydrate lips and increase water content, Kleyne suggests a personal hand-held skin or eye humidifying device that emits a 10% fresh water mist. The ideal water would have a 5.5 to 6.5. pH that is compatible with human skin. Most tap water, according to Kleyne, is not skin-compatible and will not be beneficially absorbed. Kleyne’s Research Center products, Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® and Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, are ideal for providing supplemental, pH balanced water to dry, chapped lips and skin.
