I work outside a lot and when the weather starts to turn and the wind picks up, my lips and my hands are the first to suffer. I've noticed in the last couple weeks as we turn to Fall and the weather is dropping that my lips are already starting to dry out and split. I have a bad habit of licking my lips to try and fix the matter and it only makes things worse. The best thing for me is to put this on before bed and to be good about doing it on a nightly basis to give them a chance to heal. I've tried several brands and Aquaphor is by far the best at locking in the moisture. Give it a try. You won't regret it.
