  1. I mix organic coconut oil with Vaseline lip therapy 50/50. That way the coconut oil doesn’t absorb into my lips so fast, it’s thicker, and the vaseline lip therapy seals my lips and protects them from the elements.

  2. I have extremely chapped lips and I used more Chapstick than possible so I will try the honey and sugar thanks for the suggestions ??

  3. Comment:my own chapped lip is the worse. I’m soo addicted to peeling it and i get injured. I’m really bothered about it. Thanks for the tips. Will try any of them

  4. All of a sudden my lips are BADLY chapped. Like peeling, bleeding, and crusty. So gross. I’ve been using coconut oil, but it’s so thin and seems to just make my lips temporarily wet.. and then they’re dry again in 30 mins. I tried the sugar and honey scrub on here. I think the ratio is a bit off, cuz it was so clumpy and hard to put on my lips in the first place. Will try a ratio of 1:1 next time. Just my suggestion!
