Don't let school stop you from taking good care of your lips. Spending the whole day in an air conditioned room plus dehydration can give you chapped lips so make sure you bring you favorite lip balm with you.

 9  Water bottle

Stay hydrated even when in class by bringing your own water bottle. Don't be like Harry Styles here and conserve Mother Earth by using a reusable one, just kidding! Bringing along a reusable water bottle will save you money too!
