    I tried applying a bit of eating oil today on my lips and it worked to some extent

    Hydration starts from the inside, so drink plenty of water. As for the outside of the lips: in my experience female french horn players have been consistently the best kissers. No lipbalm needed, but don't wear boxer shorts!

    LOL!!!!! I spit coffee onto my montior when I read that!! Funny, and true.

    Regarding hydration, I agree with VB's point about drinking lots of water, even when it's cold out. It means that you'll probably have to relieve yourself more often, but it's worth it...and restrooms are usually heated, so you get an extra chance to warm up.

    Get yourself some Chopsavers. It is no ordinary lip balm! You will like it!
