Whether you live in cold or hot climate, dry lips can be anyone's worse enemy. Fortunately, lip balms are some of the best pocket-sized skincare agents available for relieving dry, chapped lips.
Lip balms are moisturizers that contain either petroleum jelly, shea butter, coconut oil, beeswax or lanolin. Ingredients like menthol can be added to relieve irritation. Others contain antioxidants that neutralize radicals that do damage to the skin. If you spend time outdoors, lip balms can have sunscreens to prevent lip damage from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays.
Lip balms have changed over the years that it's worth taking another look at what's available for protecting your lips. Even better, check out the different scents now available for lip care!
