The skin on your lips is thinner and more sensitive than the skin on other parts of your body. As such, when your lips get chapped, they get irritated and worsen quickly.
Dry lips are considered chapped lips, so as soon as you feel your lips become dry, especially in the winter months, it's time to apply some balm. If you let your lips get chapped to the point that skin is coming off, or your lips crack and bleed, it's going to take time to repair them. Your lips may also become infected, so it's important to keep an eye on any cracks that have opened up.
When choosing a lip balm, avoid the ones that use beeswax as a primary ingredient. This type of wax sits on top of the lips and doesn't penetrate them, so the lips aren't treated and don't heal. Instead, they are just covered in a layer of wax.
We use two butters and oils and an essential oil in our lip balms to ensure that your lips heal and stay moisturized. What could be better than having more kissable lips right before Valentine's Day?
