Ok ive had this for years, lips go white blah blah blah.
Ive experimented and this is what i know:
1. Applying moisture = MORE SKIN GROWTH
2. Going outside(more moisture in air) = MORE SKIN GROWTH
3. Staying at home = LESS SKIN GROWTH
4. Applying NO moisturizer = LESS SKIN GROWTH
5. Breathing through the mouth = MORE SKIN GROWTH
So the problem is obviously moisture (IM NOT SAYING THATS THE ROOT CAUSE) but moisture makes it worse. This suggests to me that its a fungus or something.
I know one way that would 100% cure this but its quite impossible to do it. *Stop blood supply to the lips* and whatever is effecting it will die but as i said its quite impossible.
The lips are a tricky spot because when we talk we are applying more moisture to the lips (breathing warm air on them)
I have tested these theories so i know i am correct, for example i went outside in the cold weather and came home in about 3 hours and my lips were full of skin when i washed them.
Second example i went outside with a scarf covering my lips and came back home and the lips had little or none skin in 3 hours.
The idea is to TRY and starve the fungus or whatever is living on our lips.
BTW i dont leave the dead skin on because that makes it worse also, your giving the fungus a nice enviroment to live in.
