    lip care when cycling - and other cycling beauty tips

    Hi,

    I generally have really cracked lips.

    I drink a lot of water and use blistex regularly.

    Could it have to do with cycling in the wind?

    What are some other cycling beauty tips

    I keep a huge bottle of moisturizer at work for my hands and face cause they're out there being blasted by hot dry summer air or cold dry winter air 2-3 hours a day. Lip balm is essential, blistex is the best, if you're a girl, get blistex infusium, it goes on really nice and leaves a nice gloss, my gf loves it.

    I wasn't bragging!!!

    Though I did just buy a small tub of some women's facial cream for getting rid of wrinkles and spots. It was $30 for that or $30 for a bottle of scar remover cream, which it turns out by the ingredients is no more than liquid lip balm. So I figured, the facial cream with all the scientific names, vitamins, and chemicals, has to be by default at least a bit better than the lip balm crap.
    Its creepy the amount of dark scars that I have.

    Taking a tip from Siu Blue Wind, I too am typing a lengthy passage of text down here to demonstrate the enormous amount of space available should one wish to use it-- in sharp contrast to the avatar text above this part.

    Hear in the drylands, we learn to stash lip balm everywhere and use it constantly. Here at work ,I count five different moisturizers at my desk and three different lip balms. It's a constant battle. Once you can get your lips healed, it will be much easier to maintain them.

    Carmex is so addictive. Good ol' Chapstick works for me. I also use sunscreen on my face and neck(it's red enough already) and on my arms. Legs magically stay chicken white.

    My lips usually don't chap but they go through phases where they crack and get dry and what not .
    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.
