Thanks to all friends. Another cause for dryness and scaling of lips is our own tooth paste. Normally we all paste and wash our mouth with lots of water. But inadvertently, most of us do not wash the thin film of tooth paste sticking to our lips( I may be excused for making this observation) If we consciously rub off the invisible film of tooth paste formed on the lips by light rubbing of the finger with some water, I observed that lips do not get dry. And for better results apply immediately after brushing a little ghee or coconut oil to keep lips moist. This often prevents dryness and scaling. Also I have noted many people wetting their lips with tongue to clear the dryness. The saliva left on the lips by the tongue wipes out what ever little natural moisture is present on the lips and makes it further dry. Never try to moisten dry lips with saliva on the tongue. more
