I have always been overprotective about my lips during winters. My lips have a tendency to get overtly chapped, which leads to frequent bleeding and pain. I have been using Vaseline to guard my lips since school days; however, in the last few years, I have used Nivea chap sticks and Maybelline lip balms – these are good products, but are not natural. Once I stopped using these, my lips got drier, which made me apply in double proportions. Not a great thing, eh?
