Question Issues with lip skin sloughing off

Maybe there is a less awkward sounding way to title this

I'm not sure why but about a third of the time when I wear lip balm/stick/gloss, after a little while the skin of my lips will slough off and I'll have what appears to be white gunk gooped up here and there on my lips.

My lips don't actually seem dry generally, only unless I've recently worn something drying like a stain, or some of my lipsticks.

Have you tried gently exfoliating your lips? Before I get in the shower, I apply a thick layer of lip balm. After I get out, I wipe it off with a towel in circular motions. Then I reapply lip balm.

Do you wear a moisturizer and/or a primer under your lipstick? That might help as well.

No, I'll try doing that.

I usually apply my moisturizing lip balm over my lip gloss, etc. No primer.

Are there moisturizing lip primers?

Thanks for the input!

I'm sure there are, but I don't personally use any. I have seen videos on YT where the lady applied chapstick, then concealer (as a primer) and then lipstick.

On rare occasion I have used my toothbrush to exfoliate. I actually did that Saturday morning and this situation happened to my lips a couple hours later. I may have been too rough. Not sure if that was a factor though, since this happens to my lips at other times.

I'll laugh if it makes a difference, but I'll start applying my lip balm under my lip makeup.

And good point about making sure the toothpaste is out of it, I was in a hurry...didn't bother.

sew and sew, I have the same issue with my lips. Even when I wear lip balm, after about a half hr/hour it gets cakey/peeley on my lips and I have to scrub it off with a paper towel and reapply. I'm not consistent with exfoliating, but I'm unsure if that would really help, since my lips have been like this for as long as I can remember. It's weird trying to describe it, but I'm certain that we have the same thing goin on!

The same thing happens to me too. TBH, I just rub my lips with my finger to get off the skin. I have heard of using a toothbrush though. Sorry if I'm not much help, but sometimes it helps to know you're not alone!
