So many superstitions have occurred, which to this day make people think about seemingly simple questions. For example, why do the lips burn?

These are cabbage, beet, tomatoes, carrots and potatoes beloved by many. Even the water after boiled potatoes - a kind of medicine for the lips, hands and nails. Do not pour it out!
  3. External influence. Maybe you were too long on the street, in the wind and lips just weathered. Remember if you ate something spicy? Hot pepper can be very irritating to the skin, especially as tender as on the lips. Or perhaps you were kissing too passionately the day before? Agree, it is very much in common with national signs, only in this case, the lips do not burn before the kisses, but after them! In this situation, softening balms or plain olive oil will help.
  4. Lips can burn when it is a symptom of a serious disease - herpes. If itching in the lips does not go long enough - hurry to the doctor. This is not a commonplace cold, as many believe, but a serious viral disease.
