I've suffered from very dry lips since I was 16. I haven't worn lipstick since my first breakout. I can only use Vit E chapstick or coconut oil on my lips. I've been trying to figure out what's causing it. I was paleo starting in April when my most recent flare up started, then in Aug we moved onto our land and went back to SAD b/c I only had 1 skillet to cook out of for 5 people and my lips cleared up. Now that I have my stove back I've gone back to paleo and my lips are acting up again. Thanks for the info in this thread.
