I know it's the middle of winter and we are all dealing with chapped lips, but with another set of winter storms coming, I reached out to my mom friends to get some new ideas.

So, who's ready to hear about four ways to FIGHT chapped lips? I knew you would be!

Prevention is key. Arm yourself with several balms (they get lost easily!). Use a treatment product specifically formulated to eradicate chapped lips. Did you know sun exposure can also lead to chapped lips? So, make sure you're protecting them with SPF. We posted this question in our Ski Mom's Facebook group and here were the top picks.
