Dry, chapped, lips can plague you any time of the year. The sun and heat remove moisture, cold winds chap, and working out further exacerbates irritations. Keeping your lips smooth and pain free is an ongoing battle. Let’s look at some of your options for natural lip care. Look for lip-quenching oils such as olive and sesame to moisturize and shea butter or wax to seal and protect.
If you’ll be in the sun, seek out a lip balm with an SPF of 15 or higher to block out harmful rays. Brands like Kiss My Face and Alba Botanicals make lip balms perfect for day’s outdoors.
Lipstick, in luscious colors, can do double-duty as lip balm. You no longer need to choose between the two. You can have long-lasting color with safe and natural protectants.
Getting kids (ok and adults) to apply and re-apply lip balm can be a challenge. Fun flavors can help. Crazy rumors makes 4 and 6 packs of balm in flavor assortments from “festive” (candy cane anyone?) to soda pop. And, we just love the adorable moose-smooch lip balm tins and HerbsPro’s got them at a crazy-good price.
If you happen to be finishing up your holiday shopping, lip balms make wonderful stocking-stuffers. Individual balms also are perfect for tossing in your HerbsPro shopping cart to push you over the cutoff point for a discounted shipping promotion.
