Chapped lips are horrible. They look bad, feel bad, and always make me feel rubbish, so I’ve been hunting out exactly why they occur, and what I can do to put them at bay for good. After all, who doesn’t want soft, sexy lips? The top four reasons for chapped lips surprised me… here they are!
1. Lip Balm
Which lip balm do you use? While wax based ones look and feel like they are much more moisturizing; petroleum based ones are actually much better. They only need to be applied once or twice a day, and they last much longer, moisturizing your skin and protecting it. Need a new one? I’d recommend Aquaphor Healing Ointment, which you can get from any chemist… it works like a dream!
