As a brass player this problem is very annoying to me for any sound that i produce are being produced by the vibrations of my lips. When all my skins have peeled, too much air and vibrations go into the instrument what leaves leaks in the corners of my mouth. A thick skin has more stability that leaves no leaking air, but for the mouthpiece to cooperate properly i have too push it too hard against my lips. Somewhat in the middle of the peeling process my lips feel perfectly fine and i can play at my best. I don't use any balms or chap sticks because they only seem to weaken the skin on my lips even faster and eventually when playing (or sometimes even before that) they start peeling of.
To be honest i often have midnight snacks which are not particularly healthy and could definitely worsen my lips due to digestion problems. Besides that i eat after 7 pm i cannot believe that this causes the problem. I can find myself with lack of vitamin D and/or E and that i smoked weed for 2 years as an explanation.
I started out running for an average 6 km a day which leaves me with an extreme energy boost. But still no change with my lips. I am clean for 5 months now and had hoped there would be some positive outcomes.
Via google i found this forum and i was very intrigued by all the answers and questions that stand here. The only question remaining is how to perform a Liver Flush or cleansing??? I olso have migraine (when usually happens when i have too much gal in my liver) could this be my problem? I figured that if gal is stored in the liver maybe this could help me out with returning my lips to their former glory :).
Srry for the bad English i tried my best. Good luck to all of you and hopefully i get a reply on how to perform a liver flush.
