To heal chapped lips


Our lips get thinner with each passing year, but top that with moisture-sapping winter elements, and they’re left feeling dry and looking extra deflated.

A-list secret to stunning: Aquaphor Lip Repair ( “I can’t live without Aquaphor. I put it on my lips like it’s going out of style,”

Drew Barrymore has said about the lip hydrator. “I have the tiny tube, I have the industrial tube, I have the tub—I have all of it.”

How it works: The ointment’s glycerin draws moisture from the air into skin to rehydrate lips, its shea butter has fatty acids that further hydrate while castor oil’s antioxidan­ts repair damaged skin cells to mend chapped skin, says dermatolog­ist Erum Ilyas, M.D. What’s more, castor oil’s oleic acid stimulates collagen production to plump lips for a fuller, more youthfullo­oking pout. To do: Apply a layer of the balm onto lips twice a day. Repeat daily for hydrated and plumper lips in one week.
