For chapped, dry lips this is the trick

Submitted by Missy

Ok. we've all been through the day that we had the worst looking lips for a picture or something right. so a quick fix would be to put Vaseline or chap stick on them right? 

Wrong. In chap stick there are chemicals that can infect your lips when you have bits of open skin (chapped lips). So put some honey on your lips let dry for a bit then without moving your lips, that's important, put on some Vaseline on top. Do this about 2-5 days in a row to get rid of chapped lips. I've needed to do it many times for auditions and commercials. Only leave that on for 10-15 minutes then with a Q-tip dip it in hot water and in two strokes take off the mixture.

I woke up with chapped lips one morning about a month or so ago. I never got chapped lips, because I live in Hawaii, and it's really humid over here. I tried SoftLips lip balm, Medicated Blistex, but they never worked...there was no improvement.

I bought honey and vaseline today at the store, and just tried it. So far, so good! My lips feel normal! :)

This really didn't work for me. I've had chapped lips for 2 years now. I had used chapstick, vaseline, cortisone, carmex, bliztex, burts bees, honey, olive oil, shea butter or just plain water, and nothing seemed to work. So, I decided I would see my doctor. They told me to use Aquafor. I've used it ever since and it works perfectly for me. I love it! You guys should try it out!

I coach softball during the summer and my lips became really dry and cracked over the season. I tried the honey and vaseline and it's really helped!

Oh, on a side note though put your hair up before you put the honey on your lips. ;) lol
