Urgent Dry Lip Situation!!!


I’m an ex chapstick/lip balm user and have for the past months been using vaseline on my lips. It’s been a temporary fix to a problem that I think I created?

When I don’t apply anything on my lips after showering or washing my face, my lips instantly feel tight, dry and sting. Due to this I have always turned to vaseline but it’s at this stage that even one day without it, before even washing my face it’d sting.

I really want to stop having to apply things to my lips. WHAT DO I DO? I’m on vacation and it’ll really suck if I have to smile with cracked and dry lips in my photos just because i need to overcome my obsession with vaseline. 😒
