#HauteHack: How To Cure Dry Lips Without Balm

Sometimes even the best lip balms don’t seem to work their magic on weather-beaten, chapped lips. Especially in winter, when the cold, dry air causes the delicate skin on your lips to crack and harden. This is not only painful, but also not a good look on any girl. So before you go out and buy yourself a new (and expensive!) lip balm, try this.

Grab a teabag (green tea is better, but black should work just as fine) and dunk it in some warm water. Wait till it is fully soaked, then press it onto your lips for about five minutes. The tannins in the tea will soothe raw lips and repair dry and damaged skin cells on the surface better than any fancy chapsticks.
