The Best Lip Balms for Dry, cracked and Chapped Lips

Dry, chapped are annoying any time of year, but the problem becomes more prominent in the fall and winter. Thanks to frigid temps and less humidity in the air, any natural moisture in your lips simply evaporates, leaving you with dry skin, flaking, or even cracks.

As tempting as it may be, the last thing you want to do is lick or wet your lips to try and find relief. This will actually makes things worse, since that moisture will also evaporate and leave you feeling drier.

That's where a hydrating lip treatment comes in. I'm happy to report that, along the way, I found some products that have made my chapped lips a thing of the past.
