Chapatick Withdrawal - Breaking the Habit
As all of you must have done, at one time or another, was to break the chapstick cycle.
For people that don't get this, I know that this seems weird, but your lips do produce their own moisture, and when you supplement the moisture with chapstick, your lips do not continue to produce this moisture.
I tried to go without chapstick for ONE day -- couldn't do it. I thought I was crazy - but I'm not.
After speaking to a doctor on this - he says to really break this cycle, you have to keep from using ANYTHING on the lips for 2 weeks in order for the moisture balance to become restored.
Not for me! No Way!!! If I don't use chapstick, it feels like my lips will actually tear apart - ouch!
