Chap Stick doesn’t seem to work too well for me. How else can I prevent chapped lips this winter?
For most people, Chap Stick is effective for keeping lips moisturized in the winter. There are many types of Chap Stick on the market with many different types of additives to make it smell good or look pretty. Unfortunately some of these additives can be irritating. If you do choose a Chap Stick product, make sure to choose one that has minimal ingredients to prevent this irritation affect. Other options to try would be to use Vaseline or Aquaphor.
