What is Vaseline Lip Therapy Petroleum Jelly Original?
This Vaseline treatment is a solution for dry lips that helps to reduce dryness. Vaseline is petrolatum jelly, which originated as an ointment for healing burns in the 19th century. It is no longer used as an ointment as better treatments are available but it can help to restore moisture in dry, chapped lips. It can also help to keep skin moisturised.
What causes dry lips?
The drying of the lips can be caused by a number of different reasons, which includes:
- Hot and cold weather
- Breathing through the mouth
- Vitamin B deficiency
The lips are the most prone part of the body to dry out. This is because of the fact that there are no pores on the lips which means there is no sweat that can hydrate them. Also, the skin on the lips is thinner than anywhere else on the body.
Who is this Vaseline jelly suitable for?
This Vaseline treatment can be used by anyone who is feeling the effects of dry lips. It should not be used if you have an allergic reaction to petrolatum jelly. If you are using any form of medication, then you should be fine to use this treatment though you should speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product.
