With the winter weather on it’s way out, chapped lips need to be on the way out too. The only problem? That’s much easier said than done. To get soft lips you need to to exfoliate and moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. The key to picking a good lip balm is finding one with the best ingredients typically shea butter, vitamin E, and jojoba oil.
