Chapped lips is a common beauty problem that a lot of girls face—especially in a tropical country like the Philippines.

And get this, Candy Girls, the Korean's secret to great, smooth lips only involves two steps! Scroll down and find out how you can combat your chapped pout without breaking a sweat!

ONE: Exfoliate
