The secret to getting rid of chapped lips is so simple

Make it a habit!


( Having chapped lips is never attractive. It's a curse. You can never really feel 100/100 when your lips are dry, peeling, and worse, bleeding. Trying to hide them behind lipstick will just make the situation worse—it's not sexy when you have a red pout that's full of slits and dead skin. Ew!


So how do you get rid of chapped lips? Rachel Gulmi of shares that applying lip balm before going to bed is the secret to getting soft and healthy lips. "Your skin goes into 'spa' mode during the night and rises in temperature to flush out toxins, produce new skin cells and more. We naturally lose moisture in our skin throughout the night so that's why it's so important to moisturize before going to sleep." She adds, "Just as you would moisturize your face, you have to moisturize your lips with lip balm, or else you’ll be waking up with dry, flaky lips."

The best part about this is lip balm isn't super duper expensive. You just really have to make it part of your skincare routine. Find one that has SPF for extra protection during the day.


A friendly reminder: Before applying any lip makeup, make sure to put on lip balm—it gives a good dose of moisture. You don't want your pout to look like a drought!
