Lipstick not working for dry cracked lips!
Kelley4321 posted:
We just returned from vacation hiking in the mountains. My lips are so cracked and dry I can't wear my usual lipstick to work.

What can I do to clear this up quickly and what should I use to prevent this from happening. Should I change my lipstick to something else for the winter?

Buy and use a lip moisturizer that has sunblock in it. Make sure you use it when you go hiking. Look for lipsticks with sunblock and extra moisturizers.
