According to dermatologist Dr. Adam Friedman, honey has antibacterial properties that help soothe chapped lips, and heal wounds. For best results, he says dampen your lips with lukewarm water, then apply a thin layer of honey. Once the water dries, apply a layer of petroleum jelly, and let the mixture sit for about 15 minutes before removing it with a moistened cotton swab. Do that once a day, and Dr. Friedman says your chapped lips should be healed in no time.
