during a very short, sweet and hectic trip to the bay area, i was reminded of the allergies i had left behind. runny noses mean lots of nose blowing, which can mean chapped and sore noses and upper lips. enter acne-safe lipbalm.
i was able to get triple duty out of my trusted skinsalvation lipbalm (that right now, has our very "limited-edition, trial-and-error-new-name-that-won't-work" label lol) to save the day. moisture, SPF protection AND soothing, i simply smoothed it over the chapped areas and got near-instant relief.
so, if you're in a pinch and need extra moisture or spf, reach for your skinsalvation lipbalm and soothe yourself from sore skin and a sunburn!
ps - i also swear by neilmed sinus rinsing & puffs plus tissue with lotion. puffs doesn't have the cloggy isopropyl myristate that the kleenex brand has, but try it out and see for yourself.
