The most versatile moisturizer you own; ChapStick?

We all know the importance of moisturizing. Sun block every day, day cream, hand cream, cuticle cream, lotion, body butter, in shower moisturizer, hand/feet creams, & night cream.

It is as important to keep your skin young and plump with these little bottled miracles as it is to drink lots of delicious, nourishing water.

But the smart Domestic Goddess knows that ChapStick can be the most versatile of all!

It is no secret that we should all (and usually do) have a good ChapStick or Lip Balm handy.

I have been known to use it on my cuticles, elbows, knees, and even as a last resort eye shadow primer...

This list can also help coach you to use ChapStick when you are really in a pinch, because us Domestic goddesses know how to think on our toes and look fabulous while doing so!

Many uses for ChapStick include:

You can apply medicated Chapstick to blisters to eliminate pain and promote quicker healing. You can also use Chapstick to avoid getting blisters by applying to sensitive areas on feet or heels to prevent friction buildup.

Applying Chapstick liberally to chafed areas not only stops the friction causing the chafing, but also helps promote healing due to its medicinal ingredients.

Applying a tiny amount of Chapstick to eyebrows or to your hair will keep them in place all day long.

A quick dot of Chapstick over a mosquito or insect bite will relieve itching.

Chapstick works great for removing rings that are stuck. Simply apply Chaptick around the ring and the finger and it will slide right off. 

To prevent gardening tools or scissors from locking up or rusting, simply apply a thin layer of Chapstick. You can also prevent erosion on car battery terminals by applying some Chapstick to the terminals.

Need a quick last minute shoe polish? Apply some Chapstick – a quick buff and you are ready to go!

Chapstick is the perfect quick easy solution for nicks and cuts caused by shaving. It will stop the bleeding quickly.

Chapstick is great for helping to heal irritated skin under a sore nose caused by colds. Try applying a thin coat on sore areas a few times a day as needed.

Applying some Chapstick to a stuck or hard-to-close zipper will have it moving up and down with extreme ease.

If you trace your hair line with some ChapStick before you color your hair or rub some on your hands, the color will not stick to your skin!
