Our lips tend to always be one of the most sensitive parts of our body, but after the harsh cold of the winter and the strong winds of spring, saying they have taken a beating tends to be an understatement. They wind up chapped, peeling, and oh-so-wrinkly that we’re often embarassed by them.
Luckily, there are plenty of ways to both soothe your lips and cure them as well as to keep that awful chapping from happening. Read on below for some of the best lip care products out there.
