okay so i was thinking of how to make this treatment better. And the thought of glycerin passed my mind. I use glycerin by itself last year, & it helped a little but didnt solve the problem at hand.
Glycerin is suppose to attract water from the envornment & from lower levels of the skin (dermis) increasing the amount of water in the surface layers of skin.
So i was thinking it might work best under this steam treatment because of all the moisture in the steam. Maybe if we put glycerin on our lips 5 min before we start the treatment our lips will soak up 10x more moisture, maybe leading to faster healing. And it is also natural, so it wouldnt hurt.
