Check out this article at MSN, posted this morning. Here’s my favorite part: “To prevent and repair chapping, use a lip balm or petrolatum-based ointment (Vaseline, Aquaphor) to seal in moisture and form a protective barrier.” We avoid the petroleum products around here, but we definitely have lots of lip balm to choose from! There are some other great tips here, including breaking the “lip licking” cycle and making sure to keep hydrated. There’s also a reminder to help your kids keep their lips moisturized: they can be “encouraged to use lip balm by selecting the fruit-flavored varieties.” Hey, guess what? We have lots of kid-friendly flavors, too!
