How to get rid of chapped lips?

Chapped lips are very irritating and painful. Several people turn to many different lip balms and moisturizers to try to rid or heal chapped lips. When I first met my boyfriend, his lips would be so chapped that they would crack and bleed. This article will tell you how to get rid of chapped lips without having to use several different types of chapped sticks and lip balms.

Get rid of chapped lips by using Neosporin.

1. Wet your chapped lips down with water.

2. Take a fingertip full of Neosporin and rub it all over your chapped lips. Make sure you get it in all of the dried cracks that are on your lips.

3. Let your lips dry, do not lick your lips. They will not taste very good.

4. Repeat the steps the following day if needed.

Get rid of chapped lips with Lotion.

If you are traveling or on the go with no Neosporin, you can heal chapped and cracked lips with Lotions. Any type of lotion will moisten your lips until you have access to Neosporin ointment.

My boyfriend showed me this tip on accident when I caught him rubbing my hand lotion all over his lips when he didn't have Neosporin.

Carmex, Blistex and chap sticks don't always work to get rid of chapped lips.

      Don't think neosporin is safe to consume and let into your mouth and or body. How do you get rid of chapped lips without using anything at all? No chapstick, water, or anything like that.

      @fashionforward Too much consumption of the Neosporin will make you sick. Thanks for reading.

      Thanks tammy for the tips. I had been using the Neosporin trick for a while now. It helps me more during my sleeping hours when I'm less likely to lick my lips. I had never tried the hand lotion one though.

      Ty fashionforward for your question. It is safe, however too much of anything is unhealthy. My boyfriend uses it on his lips all the time. It just doesn't taste like strawberries or any other flavored lip balm.

      Interesting. Do you know if Neosporin is safe to consume, in case you forget and lick your lips? Blistex usually works for me, but it would be nice to know if this is truly another option.
