Ask anyone - including men - what one skin care product they use the most and the answer will likely be one form or another of lip balm ("Chapstick", "Burt's Bees", etc.)
We all struggle with dry, chapped lips whether it's due to altitude, living environment or genetics.
And clearly, a mixture of healthy butters, oils and waxes will nourish the chappest of lips and bring relief and nourishment.
Keep your lip balm tube handy for these other hacks. You never know when you'll need them!
"Elephant Elbows" are elbows so dry, they look like elephant skin. Swipe some lip balm and apply to your elbows to make them look conditioned and nourished.
