Chapped lips is a problem I have had in the past. Chapped lips give new meaning to the expression "crack a smile." When your lips are sore, red, and peeling, even a little grin can crack them wide open. Now when I was little Vaseline was the cure for just about everything. When I got older I graduated to Blistex . That little green tube is a wonderful thing. Now I tend to use cosmetic balms. Bath and Body works has all sorts of balms. I have about 5 that I use.
Before you go out—and several times while you're out—coat your lips with a lip balm. Since lips don't hold anything on them very well, reapply it every time you eat or drink anything or wipe your lips. Do not lick your lips. That only makes them more chapped. Just remember, apply the balm. Balm is good! Just keep that mantra going.
You can chase a butterfly all over the field and never catch it. But if you sit quietly in the grass it will come and sit on your shoulder.
