    • Clarifying How To Use the Report Feature   06/29/20

      Hello. I have noticed a great deal of confusion regarding how to use the report feature and what is expected regarding reports, so I am making a clarification announcement to users who may be unfamiliar with how the report feature works. Please note we have this rule regarding reports: 16.  Do report. Do not make frivolous reports (such as "I don't like this person"). Frivolous reports will result in a warning and possible ban. a. When reporting, please give a reason. Reports citing what rule the post is breaking and giving some information are way more valuable and will get the issue resolved faster. (Reports with no explanations sometimes require mods to go through and skim the entire thread to find out what's going on. Please save us time if you can). b. Don’t waste the mods’ time. Report people for breaking the rules, otherwise don’t report. [Rules in their entirety can be found here.] We also have a wonderful tutorial on how to use the report feature created by one of our former moderators which you can find here. In essence, we enforce the rules as they are written. In a rare occasion there may not be a direct violation but the user is still conducting themselves inappropriately and how we handle that is up to the moderators discretion. We do our best. We also encourage you to use the report feature to report posts that have been edited down to nothing or if you double posted and would like your double post hidden. Also, please note that we do not provide updates on reports. We get far too many to be able to keep up with every one. You are welcome to message a moderator to ask about your report, but please know that we cannot and will not divulge any information on whether we banned the user you are reporting. Simply that we have taken appropriate action. I hope this helps provide further clarification on how to use the report feature. Should you have any questions not clear in these instructions, please feel free to message me or Nyx. Thank you. *Please allow up to 3 business days (as we tend to be slower on weekends) for a response and for reports to be cleared.

Dealing with dry lips

40 posts in this topic

I've had this problem for ages. I used tons of lip balms, scrubs for lips, tried applaying normal moisturizer but nothing works :alpacaworry: 

Maybe someone has some tips for reaaaally dry lips? I've searched the internets, but I couldn't find any solution that would work for me :alpacadone:

Maybe you read it already, but have you tried honey on your lips?
I heard this from my doctor the other day when she saw my lips...
Just apply some honey to your lips and leave it on there for quite a while, but be sure not to lick it off.
Also you have to drink enough water to make sure your lips don't dry out.

Sorry, nothing special I know. :alpacaworry2:
Probably you heard/read all of this already, but the honey always helps me
Good luck!

You should think also about the food you eat. There are tons of reason sometimes, or you lack something and also how much water you daily drinking.

Could you specify what should I eat? I've never actually cared about my diet so I think that could be a reason behind my problem

I read about scrubs using honey and sugar(? I'm not sure). And simple methods are the best :3 I will definitely try :alpacacrush:

Describe me what you normally use to eat.
(Even when everybody's body is different there are things which work. For example I know when I shouldn't eat specific food in certain time.)
And also was thinking about more things. Do you sleep with your mouth open? If yes try a humidifier.

Nah, mouth closed.

I eat basically everything. A lot of bread, chocolate and sweets, but also huge amounts of vegetables. Not much junk food.

Sorry if this doesn't help, I'm awful at keeping track what I eat :alpacadone:

Yeah, sugar is the biggest reason for skin to age fast too.
Just reduce it first until your body and lips improve and then you can eat it from time to time :D

i get dry lips often because i use matte and satin lipsticks and hate having moist lips so i use mint julips lip scrub from lush. you can make your own with less ingridients like honey and caster sugar. It makes my lips really soft and if you're like me and hate having moist lips then try using a lip balm (preferably with honey) at night when you're asleep.

Lush has some really good lib scrubs, and they've worked well for me (I also have really dry lips). I think using those occasionally, and drinking more water would help a lot.

Yup. The sugars found in fruit etc. also contribute to aging. In general high glucose isn't too good for that... The sun is the number one source of aging (keep in mind UVA rays penetrate through glass so even if you're inside) but sugar is pretty major too.

I've actually had to go to the doctor before for extremely dry lips they were that bad lol. He gave me some free samples for things. Stuff like aquaphor is good.
