What do you use when you have a cold and your nose is chapped from how much kleenex you’ve been using? I use chapstick - either Burt’s Bees or Carmex. It rather stings after a moment, but it soothes the itch and burn before long. It’s miserable without it, so I am quite thankful for chapstick.
I have had a longstanding relationship with this ointment. I don’t generally drink enough water (although I do try and am getting better). Another trouble is that when I do drink plenty of water, my lips have the opposite reaction you would expect... they get really chapped. Thus, I have become rather familiar with the use of chapstick and hand lotion. The only two chapsticks that have had any longstanding effect of those that I have tried thus far are the above two. I would highly recommend them.
[Disclaimer: No, I have not been paid to advertise for Burt’s Bees, Carmex, or chapstick in general. I certify that the above testimony is true and correct to the best of my knowledge.]
So, as I am thankful for Electric Toothbrushes, I am thankful that God gave us such a thing as chapstick.
