Ive read that wounds heal faster when theyre moist. But that contradicts to leaving the lips alone (because when left alone the lips are extremely dry)
But i will do the steam for about a month, just because i feel the heat is good for my lips. And ill stop using the serum if been putting on my lips. If i see any major changes ill be sure to let to forum know.
But vunk even before your 5 day steam treatment your lips couldn't of been that worst than how they are now. Because 5 days is not enough time for you to make that much of an improvement (but i guess anything is possible)
