I was at photo shoot Melbourne and I mentioned to the makeup artist that I couldn’t wear lipstick due to my reoccurring dry lips, she recommend Lanolin. I don’t wear lipstick because I find it dries and irritates the surface of my lips. During my normal day, I can reapply moisturisers every hour. I can assure you, I have tried everything on the market. Nothing has regained moisture for long periods of time. Until I was recommend Lanolin’s Lansinoh Nipple Cream for breastfeeding mothers!
Even though the name states cream, it’s actually a thick gel ointment that penetrates deeply into the skin and restores. Lansinoh provides a barrier that allows the skin to rehydrate from underneath the surface, therefore slowing down the evaporation of the skins natural moisture. It’s been medically proven to accelerate the healing of dry or irritated skin and is extremely safe. Like Paw Paw, Lansinoh can eliminate formation of scars and scabs. If you think about it, nipples are skin too… So why wouldn’t it work on your lips? I swear by this product and have introduced Lansinoh to both Men and Women! Lansinoh is comparable with Elizabeth Arden’s eight hour cream but for me this works better.
