I’ve mentioned that I don’t like to be uncomfortable. PTSD seems to have changed my skin, and made it more dry and tough. This is especially true for my lips, which often crack and peel!

I don’t recall having dry, cracked and peeling lips as often as I have in the last few years. I drink a lot of water, I’m not out in the sun much and I really don’t know what else to think except that I’ve noticed my skin has changed – and not for the better.
I tend to be a Chapstick girl rather than a lipstick girl, although I will occasionally wear lipstick for work or when out to dinner. Chapstick is my jam though, now that they make a Natural Lip Butter in Pink Grapefruit! https://amzn.to/2CgynMi
This has been a lip-saver for me. I ran across it at my local grocery store and bought it on a whim. It has worked so well that I now keep one on my dresser and one in my purse, and when I was traveling in November and lost my Chapstick, I could tell a difference – the regular Chapstick didn’t work as well as the lip butter (and certainly doesn’t smell as good).
You can also check out their Sweet Papaya (which I have but prefer the Grapefruit) and Green Tea Mint (which I haven’t tried) if Grapefruit isn’t for you, but whichever flavor you prefer, I highly recommend this lip care line!
