If, like me, you can look outside and see snow right now, there's a good chance you're also dealing with a chapped lips problem. The biggest culprits, obviously, are the cold, windy weather and bone-dry indoor heating (a humidifier would be a great investment to combat that)—but you should also be careful to avoid licking your lips and even sleeping with your mouth open. Staying hydrated helps too: in the winter, try drinking your water at room temperature (it's easier to get down that way) or swapping it for caffeine-free herbal teas.

Now the fun part—what to slather on your poor, chapped mouth. Here are my top five winter favourites:

From left to right:

1. By Terry Baume de Rose: Expensive, but SO worth it. Non-sticky, extremely long-lasting and delicately scented with real rose extracts. Bonus: you can also apply it to your cuticles. At Sephora stores across Canada.

2. The Lip Scrub by Sara Happ: If you like chocolate, you will DIE. So much more enjoyable than trying to buff off the flakes with an old toothbrush. At BeautyMark in Vancouver or beautymark.ca.

3. Clark's Botanicals Ultra Rich Lip Balm: This cult favourite is full of plant-based ingredients (aloe leaf, sweet almond oil, shea butter), lasts forever and REALLY repairs. Order online at clarksbotanicals.com.

4. Green Beaver Winter Lip Balm: Two reasons I'm fan: it's 100% Canadian and 100% natural. This has a smooth, emollient texture without being oily (hello, Kiehl's). See here for locations.

5. Bioderma Atoderm Lip Balm: This just landed on my desk and I'm already loving it—it's fragrance-free and shiny enough to replace your favourite lip gloss. At drugstores across Canada.
