In New Zealand, weather can be extreme. The burning summer sun and harsh winters strip our skin of moisture. Because the skin on your lips is more sensitive than the rest of your skin, it can be quick to complain. Dry, peeling, cracked lips are a sign that the barrier function of lip skin has been compromised. And if you frequently lick your lips, the problem is exacerbated.
Originally, petroleum jelly was found coating the bottom of oil rigs in the 1800s. It’s a by-product of oil production, which means it’s unsustainable, and some of the components removed from petroleum jelly in the refining process are carcinogenic. Most importantly, when applied to the skin, it creates a water-repellent barrier that clogs your pores and seals in the dirt. It keeps moisture in the skin, but doesn’t actually have any moisturising properties.
