chapped lips.

One thing that comes along with cooler weather is dry, flaky, chapped lips. A couple tips to help make sure you can avoid this issue are:
  1. Wear a great lip balm
  2. Avoid licking your lips. (this causes them to loose moisture) 
  3. Look for products that contain conditioning ingredients and sunscreen. (petrolatum & oxtinoxate)
  4. Don't rely on gloss, (can be hard, I know) but this actually attracts the sun. 
For overnight repair, use a thicker salve.
