You’ve witnessed it before: flaky lips goopy with gloss or heavily wrinkled pouts with feathering lip color. Luckily for the offenders, therapeutic lip treatments abound that exfoliate, hydrate and protect from further chapping and UV damage. And if lips are looking a bit lean, a bevy of lip plumpers stand at the ready to increase the size of thin puckers.  Full, smooth pout? That’s something that should be on everyone’s lips!
