Collection: Lip Balms

The skin on our lips is very thin, extra sensitive, and puts up with a lot of wear and tear through eating, drinking, breathing, talking, kissing, etc. This delicate skin produces little melanin and does not contain sebaceous glands or sweat glands to protect against environmental assaults such as cold, heat, wind, or even acidic or spicy foods. 

Our lips want gentle, natural ingredients that will condition and soften. Ingredients that will penetrate and heal the skin—not simply coat the skin’s surface.

More About Lip Balms:

Winter extremes and summer sun can damage the sensitive skin of your lips, leaving them dry, chapped and flaky.  Petroleum based lip balms provide a quick fix for dry chapped lips by simply trapping moisture. This prevents the thin lip skin from breathing and ultimately causes greater irritation.

It is important to pamper and protect this particularly sensitive skin.

  • Moisturize throughout the day with a natural lip balm
  • If your lips feel dry and flaky exfoliate with a simple lip scrub. I mix 1 tablespoon brown sugar and enough honey to create paste. Gently massage the paste into lips and allow it to sit for a minute or two. Gently rinse with warm water and apply a lip balm. 
  • Avoid touching or licking your lips
  • Drink plenty of water

Since lip balms are applied on the lips, you will probably ingest some of the ingredients. So be sure to choose a lip balm with ingredients that you don't mind eating! ;-)
