People often think that chapped lips only happen to those who live in cold and snowy climates, but chapped lips can happen any time of year. The skin on your lips is thinner than anywhere else on your body. They do not have the ability to create melanin to filter out the sun’s rays, and they have very few oil glands to assist with hydration. For these reasons, sun, wind, and dry air can make your lips dry and cracked when you least expect it.

Caring For Your Smile

Your lips are a prominent part of your body; you use them for smiling, talking, and of course, kissing. That’s why it’s important to take care of your lips right from the start. Before they even have a chance to get chapped, keep them hydrated and soft by applying a 100% natural lip balm every day, and every night before you go to bed.

We stress the importance of using a lip product that is 100% natural because many contain synthetics and chemicals that can cause increased irritation and can be harmful to the body. Some products to avoid include:

  • Petroleum. Many chapsticks contain petroleum which is used to moisturize the lips. Though petroleum is listed as a “safe” ingredient, it has the potential to be contaminated with carcinogenic materials that can be absorbed into your bloodstream.
  • Fragrance. Some chapsticks add fragrances that can be irritating to the skin and make chapped lips even worse. Plus, the term fragrance can mean a number of things. Phthalates are potent hormone disruptors that have been found under the label of fragrance in some cosmetics.
  • Parabens. These are another common addition to chapsticks and lip balms. They can limit bacterial growth and lengthen the shelf life of a product, but parabens are known to mimic estrogen in the body and cause hormonal disturbances.

Be Beautiful Naturally

When looking for 100% natural lip care, look for products that contain some of the following ingredients. These are chemical-free additions to chapsticks and lip balms that can not only hydrate and heal but will make your lips look even better with no harm to you.

  • Vitamin E can soothe and even the appearance of the skin tone. It also decreases inflammation and helps chapped lips heal faster.
  • Zinc oxide protects against sun damage naturally, but virgin coconut oil also has natural sun protection.
  • Beeswax is a great barrier that protects your lips from the elements that can dry it out.
  • Natural oils are instantly absorbed into your lip skin and can moisturize on a deeper level than synthetic ingredients. They also contain fatty acids that protect and plump.

Our lip balms are 100% natural and contain many of these ingredients to help heal and protect your pucker. You won’t find parabens, petroleum, or any synthetics here. With the addition of natural essential oils, like peppermint and lavender, you’ll get a smile that looks and feels beautiful. Use daily.

META – Avoid hidden chemicals in your lip balm that can cause irritation and harm. Use products that are 100% natural to heal and protect with beautiful results.
