Help!!! My Lips Are Not Ready for A Baguio Trip!!!

I have extremely dry skin. And if you are a reader of this blog, you probably have come across my battle over eczema. I say now that it's a battle and not a win because eczema apparently never heals. So by the time I stopped medication, it just returned after a while...and now both ankles have it! I can't continue using a strong steroid cream the whole year round!

So, the last thing I need is dry lips! Having to slather moisturizer on EVERY part of the body and reapplying at least twice EVERY single day is just terribly tedious... and now, lip balm?! Come on!!!

Anyway, here's a photo of how dry my lips are:

(notice dry patches of my face too?)

That and I'm in Manila! Imagine how sore and chapped my lips would be when we go up north and stay in Baguio for 5 days later this week?!

I've been using Burt's Bees Rejuvenating Lip Balm with Acai berry and even though it's a good lip balm, it doesn't really work for the kind of lips I have.

I'm torn between buying Carmex or Vaseline Lip Therapy...Your thoughts?

your every woman,
