If my lips are really chapped I'll make a gentle scrub with honey and turbinado sugar.  Then apply coconut oil.  Josie Maran's infinity cream also goes on any place of mine that's dry/chapped

WATER, water, water. Cannot stress that one enough!

 

And uh, Dior Crème de Rose is a lifesaver. It smells amazing and lives up to the hype of its claims.

 

ALSO, I tend to stay away from Vaseline these days, or any other products (usually drugstore, i.e. Nivea lip balms) that contain petrolatum. They just sit on your lips. That can be a feature you want, but not when you want to ABSORB all of a product's benefits!

I second the recommendation for the Rosebud Lip Salve. It makes my lips feel so much better.

I really wish Sephora carried Nuxe, because their Reve de Miel balm is amazing! 

I'm also a big fan of Jack Black, Anthony Logistics & Dior Lip Glow.

& Don't forget to exfoliate your lips with a sugar scrub.

Be sure not to lick your lips, use an unflavored balm if you find yourself doing this. Licking causes the moisture in your lips to dry out, causing further chapping. If you are out in the wind which makes you want to lick your lips, use a scarf.


I like Fresh sugar lip balms, and Blistex Moisture balm if you want to save money and go the drugstore route.

My first line of defence is always prevention - try drink water, avoid licking, and use lip balm all year round.

 

Blistex Lip medex (the one that comes in little blue jars) works wonders for chapped lips, so does vaseline, carmex and 8 hour by elizabeth arden. I find that lip balms that come in little pot or tube forms are more moisturizing than stick forms (less wax I presume). My advice is to apply a thick layer of lip balm at night, and apply often during the day. Meanwhile, avoid lipsticks altogether - personally I find the wax in lipsticks will complicate things, and use lip gloss if they don't dry out your lips. For myself I prefer the Stila lip glaze - extremely sticky, but it does form a protective layer on the lips.

Pure vitamin E oil. You can find it at any health food store. You can apply it many times over and not worry about swallowing any chemicals.

I'm gonna third (or is it fourth) the Fresh Sugars... and, when things get real rough (after snow days etc...), their scrub is amazing.

 

But, as other posters said, nothing will work better than increasing water intake.  I'm off to fill my glass again...

Buddha Balm lip balm, they have 6 different flavors available and you can only purchase them in packs of 4 under $13 with free shipping in different flavors or specific ones.  I recommend this brand because I can't remember having chapped lips after using them.  These balms are flavored but they aren't to waxy like Burt Bee's.

 

 

 

Remember to drink water and apply lip balm regularly

Both Vaseline and sugar fresh are excellent products. They also have some nice tinted shades to choose from.

I noticed my lips feel super chapped and uncomfortable when I do not drink enough water (because I am too busy at work to get a drink of H2O) or when I do not apply lip balm (because I left it home).

 

So to fix it so speaking I make sure I drink enough water/tea to stay hydrated - which is not only good for your lips but for your whole body and carry a cute little lip balm with you (cute or good smelling things we tend to like more often and do not forget to apply them :smileywink: )

 

My recommendation besides drinking water, and not licking your lips is to get a good lip balm and may be sugar lip scrub to get rid of some dry skin; here are some of my suggestions:

 

Carmex (is my lip saver when I have an emergency so speaking, sometimes I even use it in combination with another lip balm)

Vaseline  (Shea butter or rose scented)

milmac gave good advice. Also, Fresh makes really great lip scrubs and their lip treatments have saved me already a few times this year. They last so much longer on the lips than Chapstick or Carmex. Highly recommend for you :smileyhappy:
