A: Chapped and super dry lips aren't just a winter problem, and there's unfortunately so many culprits that can cause them and prolong dryness - licking them, certain foods, gum, toothpaste residue, dry climate, certain lip products..
👄The first place to start is check your #lipbalm
and avoid menthols, mint, camphor, cinnamon, and fragrances- all of which can exacerbate dryness.
👄After brushing your teeth or using mouthwash, make sure to rinse any residue off since these can also dry them out.
👄If you regularly wear #mattelipstick
make sure to use a rich balm often.
👄After chewing gum, eating spicy food, or drinking alcohol- give your lips a wipe with a wet damp cloth and apply a balm.
👄Use spf lip balms when outside, @suntegrity and @badgerbalm make excellent ones with and without tint.
👄For hydrating, I regularly use and recommend @henneorganics or if you need a emergency last minute option try aquafor lip balm.
