Admit it, the worst part about summer and winter are dry, chapped, peeling lips. Sure, you need to up your water intake, but it could be days before your lips get back to ther naturally supple state.

For über chapped lips, Pecheux swears by two products (you'll have to click through for the second one.) Gently exoliate your lips until they're smooth— or "baby's bottom" as Pecheux likes to call it— and follow with his favorit balm (see slide 2).

Pecheux always recommends that you do your lipstick last. During fashion week and on shoots, he swears by this baume to keep model's lips moisturized and smooth. Her recommends that you apply lip balm over night to lock in hydration and apply it before your do your makeup for a quick moisture treatment. If you're wearing a matte, be sure to wipe it off before you apply your lipstick, as lip balm may make matte lipstick look creamy.
