Winter is coming fast and along with winter comes dry, chapped, cracked lips. To avoid this, make sure you keep your lips moist and hydrated at all times with the best natural lip balms you can find. Many lipsticks, glosses, and lip balms contain chemicals that believe it or not, contribute to dry lips. Ask yourself a question: How often are you reapplying your lip balm? If you’re applying it constantly, let’s say, every half hour or so than obviously this product is not working for you.
Many are now claiming this as a “lip balm addiction” when in reality, the product is simply ineffective. Watch the ingredients and instead opt for a natural lip balm without drying chemicals. One other thing. Head on over to the cosmetic safety database, plug in your favorite lip products, and take a peak at the chemicals you may be swallowing every day.
I’m here to help you so here are just a few all natural lip balms that will do the trick:
