If your chapped lips have stolen your smile, this homemade tip will definitely work wonders.
Good old Vaseline is the best cure to battle the dry, cracked winter lips. The inexpensive petroleum jelly is the best cure for just about every dry body part you have.
In case of lips, scrub petroleum jelly into your dry and flaky lips with an old toothbrush several times a day. Trust me, this will bring back your 32 watts smile. Not only it will give your pout a glossy look, they will be in a more kissable shape than ever before.
Smear your lips heavily with vaseline before going to bed as well. You will surely wake up to wonderfully soft lips in the morning. However, if you don’t have time for this, wear a long stay lipstick and forget the gloss. Applying petroleum jelly throughout the day, will again give you softer than ever lips.
