Do you really want me to explain all the things I tried? OK I will do a post, it will be long.....but I will do it next post. Please do not be disheartened. I coped by constantly moisturising them and then let them peel just by moving my lips about when I knew peeling day was due, then I would pretend I didn't have this .....thing and I would feel OK, until the next peel whilst also being careful not to eat anything that could upset the good condition of my carefully maintained lips the biggest culprit was spices, or spegetti Bolognese, or citric fruits. I consoled myself that there were others worse off than me healthwise, blind crippled,etc so I went dancing and having fun with one eye on the next peeling date due.
