Who else gets really chapped lips? If you answered “me,” then I have a treat for all of you. I’ve always had dry lips so I do my best to keep them at bay. I drink a lot of water, scrub them down, and of course, moisturize them. Whether you go online or in store, there are so many lip balm options to choose from. They come in a variety of packagings with different promises. If you find these overwhelming, there are still some that are straight to the point and fuss-free.
