Yes i have. As a matter of fact im still doing that as of right now. Im just doin it in a different way. I use a serum that suppose to help promote collagen & i dont peel skin till its ready. & i put gentian violet on my lips once in a while.
But the key to leaving your lips alone is to know get it wet & soggy. When your in the shower try not to wet your lips. You want the deadskin to stay on as long as possible, so the skin underneath can have time to heal.
Mines have came a long way since a year ago, but i still need more healing. But i know it will come in time.
