I think everyone has memories from their childhood of that one kid with overly dry and inflamed red lips. Remember? It looked like he or she was wearing those big wax red lips all the time.
Maybe that kid was you (we won't tell).
Either way, dry skin on your lips is no fun.
Your lips are very delicate and contain several sensitive nerve endings. When the skin breaks from cold sores, fever blisters, injuries, or dry skin, it's hard to get the pain off your mind – it's almost omnipresent.
Fortunately, you don't need to use bitter-tasting conventional treatments on your lips or anywhere else (and you really shouldn't) because nature provides plenty of plant-based – and effective – solutions.
It's important to figure out what's triggering your flare ups. This isn't exactly easy, and it might take quite a bit of trial and error. Doctors aren't sure what causes eczema, but you can identify what triggers your flare ups.
The skin on your lips and eyes is much thinner and more delicate than skin elsewhere on your body. As a result, these areas are much more susceptible to infections, blisters, and dry skin.

Fake fragrances, lotions, and antibacterial ointments often contain chemicals that can make eczema worse. That's why using natural products for eczema – especially in delicate areas like your lips and eyes – is so really worth a try.
Plus, conventional treatments don't have the same multifunctional properties that natural substances do. Since natural ingredients work with the body instead of in spite of it, they help from several angles:
Manuka oil is one of the only substances to contain all the properties above – but other natural ingredients are potent, too (especially when combined with manuka).
Here are some of the best natural solutions for relief. Yes, all of them are safe to use on your lips. If you experience some stinging with neat (undiluted) essential oils, simply dilute them a bit with a carrier oil like coconut or sunflower oil.
