The Cure for Chapped Lips

I am a self-professed lip balm addict.  ‘Tis true.  I’m convinced it all started when I was a little girl and used to eagerly await getting that strip of Bonne Bell Lip Smackers in my stocking each year.


These days, this is my favorite brand, and I still use a lot of it.  I love the way it tastes, feels, and the condition in which it leaves my kisser.  Good stuff.  Most of the time?  I manage to avoid chapped lips.  Even through the sunny days of summer and the dry indoor heat and biting wind of winter, I fare okay.


But about two weeks ago now, I was suddenly dealing with chapped lips that no amount of balm would cure.  Seriously– OUCH.  And icky.  I kept slathering the stuff on, but it wasn’t making a dent.  I was chalking the whole thing up to hopeless.  Until I found the cure.


Do you want to know what completely cured my chapped lips and left my mouth smooth and fresh and happy?  Are you ready?  It’s a super fun cure– I promise you.  The cure is this:


An extended smooch-fest with hubby.  Five o’clock shadow not required, but useful nonetheless.


I’m not kidding.  I never would have believed it.  Quite frankly, I didn’t FEEL much like kissing given the state of my lips.  But I’m ever so glad I got over that.


Got lips that could use some exfoliating?  My advice is you skip the washcloth/toothbrush/etc. advice and grab your man.


He can thank me later. ;)
