A lip balm is part of everyone's basic routine (even men!). Its main function is to keep our pout supple and become a smooth canvas for lipstick. But the biggest selling point of all is its ability to heal extremely dry, chapped lips.
You see, chapped lips happen when your body lacks hydration and vitamin B, and a lip balm provides instant repair.

Below, we round up the highly effective lip balms we tried to soothe peeling lips.
