Makeup Tips From Bobbi Brown
What can I do for really dry lips? Lip balm doesn't work!
Lara Mitchell, Philadelphia, PA
Bobbi: It doesn’t help me either, but I’ve found tricks that do. First, drink more waterchapped lips are usually a sign of dehydration. Second, put some of your eye cream on your lips, as well (one without any irritating anti-aging ingredients). The eye cream’s moisturizers help to heal the dryness. Test out Lancôme Progrès Contour Des Yeux Eye Cream ($55; lancome-usa.com).
Finally, in the morning, apply a balm without camphor or menthol (I’ve found that they can be drying); then dab on clear gloss for extra protection.
