Several months ago I took my son to the store to purchase even more lip balm for him. He has severely chapped lips and no matter what we tried, it didn’t seem to help. If he forgets his lip balm at home, by the time I pick him up from school his lips are often chapped, cracked and have a rosy red ring around them. I asked someone at the store what they recommend, and was a little surprised when they suggested Herpecin L.
Why was I surprised? I had always associated Herpecin L as being the product to use for cold sores. If we didn’t have cold sores, why would we need it?
It turns out, Herpecin L isn’t just the best cold sore remedy on the market, it’s also amazing to relieve dry, chapped lips. I bought a tube for my son because he needed something and other balms just weren’t cutting it for him. We’ve never looked back. In fact it worked so well for him, I ended up using it as well!
Herpecin L is a little jewel that’s been flying under the radar for awhile. I think a lot had my same mindset when it came to it. No cold sores, so why would I buy it? I was so wrong. Herpecin L is an everyday lip treatment that contains sunscreen to protect your lips even further. Herpecin L promotes healing without numbing too. When it’s applied, it literally feels like a normal balm, but it makes your lips feel smoother, and after a few days of using it, your chapped lips are a thing of the past.
If you happen to be one of the 50-80% of US adults who have oral herpes, Herpecin L is even better for you. And yes, that large of a percentage of US adults have it. It’s an incredibly common infection in the mouth area that is caused by herpes simplex virus type 1. According to the National Institute of Health, 90 percent of adults have been exposed to the virus by age 50. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. While I’ve personally never had a cold sore or fever blister – it doesn’t mean I won’t in my lifetime. But when and if I am exposed to it, I already know how to combat it.
Since discovering how well Herpecin L works on both my sons chapped lips and my own, I keep a tube on me everywhere I go. It’s more hydrating than other lip treatments I’ve used, contains SPF so our lips don’t get sunburned (those hurt!) plus it offers relief and speedier recovery time from cold sores, should you have them.
You can find this little lip gem in your local Walmart. Next time you stop in, grab a tube and give it a try. Your lips will thank you, especially during the chillier seasons when chapped lips are much more common!
