SOOTHE THOSE CHAPPED LIPS
Clinical Herbalist Reviewed on January 6, 2011 by Paulina Nelega, RH
Chapped lips are painful this time of year with the cold weather setting in. And licking them just makes them worse!
A quick and easy tip to soothe those cracked lips is to apply Shea Butter to them. Shea Butter penetrates the skin and moisturizes at a deeper level. Shea Butter is also rich in Vitamins A and E which help to heal cracked and chapped lips.
To seal in the Shea Butter, try covering it with a coating of a beeswax chap stick.
