the Buzz on Chapped Lips

One big beauty DON'T this year is dry and peeling lips.  I've compiled a few pointers to keep your lips hydrated and fabulous. Protect your pucker from whatever Spring throws at you this season- the cold, the sun, the the wind- and keep them looking their best at all times. 
  • Drink plenty of water. Dehydration is a huge factor in chapped lips so make sure you keep yourself hydrated.
  • Make sure you are not allergic to anything in your lipsticks. If you notice extra dryness after applying your favorite MAC lippie, find out what exactly is irritating your lips and toss it!
  • Avoid licking your lips. This does not- repeat does not!- moisturize your dry and chapped lips. It only just further irritates them.
  • Apply lip balms with bees wax, petroleum and/or SPF!
I've noticed that some glosses, especially Chanel glossimers and Chaneticalle,  often leave my lips feeling moisturized and soft but nothing cures a chapped lip better than my bedside best friend Burt's Bees lip balm.  Check out their latest addition to the Burt's Bees family, their new Tinted Lip Balm which offer up a range of shades from neutrals to berries. Pictured below are my moisturized and soft lips slathered with Burt's Bees tinted lip balm in Tiger Lily. What's your favorite remedy to chapped lips? Leave your thoughts in the comments.


  1. One of the most important things is exfoliating! :)

  2. I have such a problem with chapped lips. So far I have found that the blistex medicated relief cream helps me the most.

  3. I use Burt's Bees religiously! Their pomegranate oil is superb!

  4. I saw these at the local Walgreens but didn't pick it up due to the price. I heard they are like the same as the original with very little pigmentation. Love it on you though!

  5. Awesome post! My boyfriend could definitely pick up some of these tips, lollolololololl!

    I also LOVE Burts Bees products! Been using their chap sticks since high school haha! :)

  6. Great post.. I have THE dryest lips out there, nothing seems to help, although my biting them must be really bad!!
    Thanks for the tips! I should try that Burts Bees stuff.

  7. i had a burts bees minty lip balm but it was waaaay to minty and it actually stinged my lips LOLL. so i gave it to my boyfriend he likes the feeling.. idk maybe hes kinky like that haha. but nice pointers :) i definitely need to drink more water!

  8. Favourite remedy is the Blistex range! (: love your blog xx
