Licking the lips while fasting


1. Can I lick the skin outside of my lipline during fasting?

2. I was told that because spittle can unintentionally go on my lips when talking, I can lick it. Does this apply to when the spittle lands outside of my lips?

A: It is better not to.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
