So whenever i am not ableto play a day i get extremely chapped lips. Its so bad that if i've been playing 2 hours a day for a while and i switch to just one for a day my lips start to get chapped. I've tried to use a vitamin e stick but it doesnt help that much.
This brought me to my current question. Can using too much lip balm have a negative effect? I'm an extremely heavy lip balm user, i always have blistexdct with me. Before that i always had chopsaver, and before that was vaseline. I literally use it all of the time.
I am wondering if this excessive use could have a negative effect on my lips. If it doesnt can someone reccomend something to solve my chapped lips problem. I would like to make a career out of trumpet playing, but it wont happen if these chapped lips can inhibit my playing on an almost daily basis.
(edit) Any similar stories or experiences would be much appreciated.
