Benefits of Lip Balm
Lip balm should be on everyone’s list of beauty essentials and if it’s not, WYD?! Whether you need extra moisture, nourishment, a pop of color, or protection – the benefits of applying lip balm have you covered!
We all know that lips tend to look thinner and all lines are emphasized by 100% when they are dry. Keeping your lips moisturized will help keep your pout plump and soften those lines. Lip balm is key to maintaining youthful and supple lips
Keeps New Skin Cells Protected
When you sleep, your lips rise in temp so they can flush out any toxins and produce new skin cells (bet you didn’t know this!). This causes your lips to lose moisture overnight, so there are especially great benefits of using lip balm at night. Applying lip balm before bed will keep your lips nice and moisturized while they are flushing out toxins and the new skin cells being produced will be protected!
Soft Hint of Color
Some lip balms, aside from moisturizing, will offer a slight hint of color. This is perfect for days when you need a little extra oomph without having to apply lipstick! Moisture? Check. Flush of color? Check!
Avoid Painful Chapped Lips
One of the best health benefits of using lip balm is that you’ll avoid the pain of having extremely dry lips. When your lips have all the life and hydration sucked outta them, they can start flaking to the point where they will bleed… and it hurts! Using lip balm will prevent you from going through that dreaded pain.
Can Make Your Lipstick Look Better
Among the many benefits of applying lip balm, applying underneath your lipstick will allow your lipstick to go on as smooth as butter! If you’re going to apply matte lipstick, make sure you only use a thin layer of lip balm and let it dry before swiping on your lipstick!
It Has Other Uses!
There are many other problems you can solve with lip balm! Runners use lip balm around their noses in cold weather to prevent that area from getting dry/chapped. There’s more where that came from but we have to save some secrets for the future 😉.
