Re: SEVERELY chapped lips. What to do?

We have this problem every winter with at least one kid - they tend to outgrow the constant licking their lips outside in the cold by 9 or 10 years old.
We just get them to put vaseline on their lips before bed every night, then use lipsyl through the day (easier for them to carry in their pockets), until their lips feel better. Rinse and repeat, lol.
Lanolin would work really well too, likely.

The problem with some lipsyls too is that they taste good to kids, so that makes them lick their lips more - not helping the problem.
