Having chapped, dry lips aren’t sexy at all. Plus, it also really hurts when your lip cracks! Taking care of your lips is essential to prevent it from cracking and bleeding, especially when our lips are prone to sun exposure. Also, it's a sight for sore eyes when your lips are peeling with dead skin hanging out.

What is lip balm good for?

Chapped lips or not, it’s good to use a lip balm regularly. It works to lock in any moisture you have on your lips, preventing it from drying out and protecting them from exposing to the sun and harsh environment.

Besides, an air-conditioned setting, dry air and cold wind can dry your lips out fast. So if you’re constantly exposed to these environments, you should keep a stick or pot of lip balm with you at all times and reapply when necessary. Nevertheless, take a look at this list to find out which lip balm is suitable for you.
