10 Genius Ways To Heal Dry Lips Without Lip Balm

You use your mouth for a lot of things. Talking, eating, breathing, kissing… the list goes on. In the grand scheme of things, you probably don’t really think about how much your lips do throughout the day, which means you also don’t think about taking care of them. But you should, because dry, chapped, unhappy lips are kind of the worst. Regardless of the season and the weather, your lips need extra special attention – and I don’t mean the kind that comes from a significant other. Sure, lip balm is great, but there are so many other ways to heal dry lips that you need to try.

You probably have a go-to lip balm, whether it’s basic ChapStick or something flavored/medicated/tinted/scented that makes you feel like you’re treating your lips right. Surprisingly, certain lip balms can actually make your chapped lips worse. Make sure you’re checking the ingredients; additives like glycerin and hyaluronic acid actually dry your lips out when not balanced with enough moisturizing ingredients. On top of that, lip balm that soothes chapped lips is known to be a little bit addictive, which is kind of a bummer. Take a break by turning to one of these alternatives to protect your pucker! You’ll thank us during your next makeout session.
