Get Soft Now
To buff away stubborn flakes, dip a damp toothbrush in baking soda and gently massage it over dry lips. Rinse, then pat dry and follow with a swipe of a balm infused with lanolin, which draws in moisture, says Francesca Fusco, MD, a dermatologist in New York City. One that's light is Rosebud Strawberry Lip Balm ($7, drugstore.com).

Stay Smooth Forever
Three ways to keep chapping at bay: (1) Avoid licking lips; saliva contains enzymes that break down skin. (2) Instead of wearing long-lasting stains, which are especially drying, use conditioning balms and glosses. (3) Drink eight cups of water daily; H2O hydrates skin cells from the inside out, plumping lips with moisture.
