Things to Consider Before Buying Lip Balm

It is the most consistent product we pick for healthy soft lips. The most important thing that you should keep in mind before buying a lip balm is to check the ingredients because, unlike other beauty products, you are directly ingesting the lip balm. So harmful chemicals are a big No-No in your lip balm.

Avoid phenol, menthol: The ingredients like menthols, phenol, and salicylic acid make your lips drier and urging to apply more lip balm; thus, it turns into a vicious cycle. If you can’t figure out whether these harmful ingredients are in your lip balm or not, then according to a dermatologist, you will feel irritation while applying such lip balms. So avoid wearing such toxic things on your lips.

Lip balm with at least SPF 15: We apply sunscreen on our face but have you ever thought, what about your lips? Lips also get tanned. So next time, before buying a lip balm for you. Try finding a lip balm with SPF at least 15 or more than that. Your lips also need to be covered with a layer for protection from the harmful sun rays.

Simple, Petroleum-based balms: Such lip balms are super healthy for your lips. These prevent future chapping of lips and checks on the reasons causing it.

Avoid excessively scented or flavored balms: The lip balms with intense flavors and scents can worsen your skin by drying your lips. Also, these contain strong chemicals that can make you allergic.


Lips are an eminent part of your face and body.

We have come a long way from using natural products to chemical-based products but now again trying to go back to some chemical-free beauty products which do not harm our bodies. The same goes with the lip balms too. Try using the products having natural ingredients rather than just looking at a well-established brand.

And no matter how many products you add to your makeup kit, never forget to have a lip balm in your ever teeny-tiny purse. So Blanket your lips with the sheer tint and whisper sweet nothings. Smile more because now your lips aren’t cracked.
