Now that winter is upon us and I’ve been getting so many queries on lip balms to buy. We all use lip balms to keep our lips moist and supple.
But do you know that certain mineral oils like petroleum jelly can leave the lips feeling even more drier? It actually creates a layer on the lips that can hinder in the production of moisturizing lipids, leaving the lips even drier and chapped.
So opt for natural balms like cocoa butter, which is rich in antioxidants and helps to heal dry, chapped lips. Even Shea butter is an amazing ingredient for lip balm. It’s rich vitamin A and E, and helps to soothe and moisturize the chapped lips.
Beeswax, again, is an excellent ingredient for lip balm. It’s a natural, safe way to use wax, which helps to create a barrier to seal the moisture into the skin and save it from environmental toxins and irritants.
So now you know what look for when choosing a lip balm to take care of your lips this winter.
