I don't believe there are any muscles in the lips. Various muscles surround the lips and control them. I use ChopSaver and prefer it for general lip conditioning. Treatments such as Blistex are better suited for cold sores and similar problems.
I'm not a doctor, but I did stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
In the 70's when I was putting in a LOT of time on the horn, I tried rubbing vitamin E on my lips. It seemed to help them heal quicker, but wound up making them softer and more succeptible (-5pts spelling) to damage. But that was just me. What ever works, use it.
