The arrival of football, marching band, and pumpkin spiced everything means that winter is around the corner. With that in mind, I would like to discuss a sensitive subject for all brass players, lip care.
First, it is important to stay hydrated! In fact, dehydration is one of the most common causes of dry or chapped lips. Next, it is important to frequently apply the lip balm of your choice. I prefer Blistex Medicated Lip Balm. I find it helpful to apply it throughout the day and generously prior to bedtime.
