DONT USE CARMEX!!!! Its not good for your lips and will make them more chapped overtime. Try using Vasoline or Patrolium Jelly... these work great and theyre gentle enough to use on babies. Make sure you DONT lick your lips like i used to do... unless you enjoy looking like you just got done drinking a gallon of RED gatorade<<< which is also not good for your lips. Drink lots of water

You definitely need some sort of chapstick. They have medicated chapstick that can help a little more. I heard though if you use the cheapest chapstick, it doesn't work well and just keeps your lips chapped. I use Nivea Chapstick and it has worked great so far.

Use Carmex it really works and try to stay away from foods that have a lot of acid or salt in them it can make them really irritated!!! Good luck !!:)

Carmex is the best chapstick ever but it has menthol in it which is addictive for your lips so I use it only when my lips are actually chapped. For everyday I use chapstick true shimmer.

Do not lick your lips at all as this will keep your lips chapped...alot of chapsticks have menthol in them and will cause discomfort. I use a chapstick made by Cover Girl and it has a color tint in it as well... Love it!

What is it actually???

Lanolin is the natural oil that is on wool. They take it and purify it, and then it can be used to sooth sore skin. It is an ingredient in some of the really good lip gloss and chapsticks, but I like to buy it pure because it helps so much.

Oh, and it used to be really inexpensive but lately I notice the price has gone up...I get it in the pharmacy section at supermarkets sometimes, or I just go to a pharmacy until I find one that sells it at a reasonable cost.

There are several good lip balms out there. Carmex is good, Nivea is wonderful, and there is one by Aquafina that is also very good. I have the same problem, and I keep a lip balm stick with me wherever I go.

Carmex is cheap but not good for ur lips over a long period of time. Get some rosebud strawberry salve, it's awesome and lasts a long time. All the girls I know use it. U can buy it at sephora or online. I think it's like $7 for a tin.

Licking your lips is not an option!!! You can put burts bees or vaseline to help your lips. This will help a lot. Try not to eat spicy and salty food. Foods with acid aren't helpful either. I garantee you that this works
