Full Answer

In curing chapped lips, they should first be gently exfoliated with a damp washcloth. One the area is patted dry, a small amount of eye cream may be rubbed on and around the lips to promote moisture. The lip balm or remedy of choice is then generously applied, and as needed throughout the day.
