Chapped Lips Can Ruin Winter Claims Sharon Kleyne

Radio Host Kleyne Offers Help for Dry Lips. Water Life Science® Founder Shares Tips To Help Chapped Lips.

Chapped lips are the perfect example of a malady that is not life-threatening or even serious, according to many. Yet, once you have them, you think differently. Chapped lips are painful and unsightly and international water researcher and educator Sharon Kleyne can help you rejuvenate your lips. Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, suggests that paraffin-based lip balm can effectively soothe and heal chapped lips. However, this lip balm only works if it is applied correctly.

According to Kleyne, chapped lips, or cheilitis, are the result of excess evaporation of water from the lip skin. This loss of water vapor can include swelling, inflammation, peeling and cracking. Winter, when the cooler air is not able to hold as much natural water vapor, is the most serious season for chapped lips. The forced air heating and cooling in an automobile, blowing directly at the face, can also cause unwanted outbreaks of chapping. Other high risk conditions include exposure to wind, sun and dust, and airline cabins where the relative humidity may only be 3% to 5%.

Kleyne, founder of Bio-Logic Aqua® Research Water Life Science®, teaches that lip skin is thinner than body skin and contains no sweat glands, hair follicles or moisture-sealing oils. As a result, lip skin tends to dehydrate much more quickly than body skin. Kleyne believes that a good strategy to prevent chapped lips is to drink at least eight glasses of water a day. She also suggests that you avoid situations that promote chapped lips. In addition, Kleyne warns, avoid licking, touching or chewing your chapped lips.

Kleyne points out that there are many products for soothing chapped lips and most of them contain an oil-or-wax-based moisture sealer in addition to an additive such as menthol to comfort and cool. Some may even contain an anti-inflammatory or anti-bacterial medication. Kleyne cautions that lip balm or petroleum jelly can be helpful, but only if used correctly. Kleyne also points out that that lip balm is a moisture sealer only. It helps hold water content in the skin but does not replenish water lost to evaporation skin. To lubricate and replenish the lip skin, Kleyne suggests using pure water on the lips before applying lip balm so the sealer has moisture to seal in.

To supplement and replenish chapped lips, Kleyne suggests Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® and Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, which are ideal for providing supplemental, pH balanced water to chapped lips and skin. These products, which have no competition in the global market, contain 100 percent pure Trade Secret tissue culture grade water and are applied to the lips, eyes and face as a patented micron-size mist from a personal, portable hand-held humidifier. Kleyne believes that there is no reason for suffering with chapped lips when soothing relief is close at hand.

Chapped Lips Want More Moisture Says Sharon Kleyne

Water Advocate Kleyne Tells the Truth about Chapped Lips. Sharon Kleyne Brings Relief for Sufferers of Chapped Lips.

Unlike many serious diseases and afflictions, chapped lips will not usually threaten your life or drive you into the hospital. But there is no denying the fact that chapped lips can be painful, annoying, unattractive, uncomfortable and difficult to ignore. As the weather turns cooler and winter fast approaches, you know that it’s likely you’ll experience some cracked, dry and even bleeding lips before summer comes again.

International water educator and researcher Sharon Kleyne is well aware of this cycle and she has some advice that will soothe your lips and ease your mind. Kleyne, host of the nationally syndicated The Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water, Global Climate Change and Your Health on VoiceAmerica sponsored by Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, wants to reassure you that paraffin-based lip balm can help immeasurably to soothe and heal chapped lips. However, balm will only work if you apply it correctly. Kleyne recently reported on the causes of chapped lips and the proper application of lip balm.

Chapped lips, or cheilitis, occur because the skin of the lips experiences excessive evaporation. This evaporation might be accompanied by inflammation, peeling and cracking. As stated earlier, chapped lips are most likely to occur in winter when the cooler air is not able to hold as much natural water vapor. The forced air heating and cooling in an automobile, blowing directly at the face also causes frequent chapping. Other high risk conditions include exposure to wind, sun and dust, and airline cabins where the relative humidity may only be 3 to 5%.

Because the skin of the lips are thinner than body skin, and contain no sweat glands, hair follicles or moisture sealing oils, Kleyne explains, lip skin tends to become dehydrated much more quickly than body skin. If you want to prevent chapped lips, drink at least eight glasses of water a day, in addition to all other liquids, and avoiding prolonged exposure to lip-drying situations. Also, do not lick chapped lips!

But what do you do when chapped lips occur despite your best efforts? Fortunately, there are numerous remedies and products on the market. Most contain an oil-or-wax-based moisture sealer, plus an additive such as menthol to soothe and cool. Some may contain an anti-inflammatory or anti-bacterial medication. Lip balm or petroleum jelly, says Kleyne, can be helpful but only if used correctly. Above all, Kleyne points out, remember that lip balm is a moisture sealer only. It holds water content in, yet it does not supplement or replenish water lost by the lip skin. Kleyne recommends replenishing the lip skin’s natural water content before applying lip balm so the moisture sealer has something to seal. Kleyne suggests using a personal, portable hand-held skin or eye humidifier that emits a 100% fresh water mist. The ideal water would have a 5.5 to 6.5. pH that is compatible with human skin. Most tap water is not skin-compatible and will not be beneficially absorbed. Kleyne’s Research Center products, Nature’s Mist® Face of the Water® and Nature’s Tears® EyeMist®, are ideal for providing supplemental, pH balanced fresh, pure water to supplement dry, chapped lips and skin.
