I am having trouble with dry skin around mouth.. like the corners of my lips and under my lips I have tried many different moisturizers and it just makes it red and then drys up like 20 mins later.. I don't know if its the facial wash i use or the water that i use .. but its really bad looking and uncomfortable
To eliminate possibilities I suggest you discontinue use of the cleanser you are using and try something else. In the meantime I suggest you treat the lip area with Dr. Dan's CortiBalm. Please contact me with further questions.
CommentsI had this problem! by Randoll
I too had the peeling and irritation around my mouth. For me, I found it was because that area was unable to withstand the exfoliation and other treatments the rest of my face could. I started avoiding that area and using a more gentle cleanser there and it faded away! If I am lazy and allow my exfoliation products to get around my mouth, it happens again.
I hope that helps! You're not alone! :D
