Hey people, its been a while since ive been on here but ive actually found something that works works great. Most of you will think im retarded but just try it. Since our winter began all ive been doing is studying but i recently got a new job 2 months ago and what i do is i am out all day going to different stores and working in them. Do to the cold weather, I wore a scarf around my mouth to protect my lips. What i have found is that putting somthing around your mouth, even when your inside your house, and breathing normally through your mouth, actually helps them strengthen and I dont have any problems talking or smiling or laughing. It makes them normal, I suspect it is the moist air being trapped in the scarf. BUt try it, do it for 15 minutes three times a day, and it makes a world of a difference for me. Also the breathing through the mouth with a scarf helpes them peel much better, the skin just comes off once hard.
