Better Ways to Keep Your Lips Moist
Valentine's Day is almost here and it's time to make your lips as kissable as they can be. Making them soft and supple is much easier than you think with our natural moisturizing and nourishing vegan lip balms.
Understanding what your lips need will get your lips ready for their close-up.
How many times a day do you apply your lip balm?
It’s been reported that the average person uses lip balm anywhere from two to 30 times a day. You read that right – 30 times. Lip balm is one of the most important moisturizing products you need for healthy lips, and when applied, it should get your lips smooth and soft instantly. If it’s not than you may need to take a look at the ingredient label on the lip balm you are currently using.
In order to have lip balm work properly, it should include ingredients that act as a barrier to prevent moisture loss, but it also needs to have ingredients that hydrate and draw moisture to them, as well as emollient ingredients that will condition, soften, restore and sooth the lips.
Lip balm has come a long way from good ol’ Vaseline (100% petroleum jelly), which is an oil byproduct that may contain carcinogens (depending on the company’s refining process) and cause allergic reactions. Though it might feel soothing upon application, petroleum jelly is a water-repellant that seals your pores so moisture can’t get in or out; it doesn’t offer your lips anything else. We have a better and healthier alternative for you!
