Lip balms are unfortunately the underdogs of beauty regime. Why? This is because a lot of women believe they can simply swipe a good lipstick over their pucker and brush aside the underlying damage on their lips. Well, here’s the truth. No amount of lipstick (even the most expensive one) can really conceal dehydrated, chapped and sun-damaged lips. Plus, it’s just mere injustice to your big-budget lipstick and you wouldn’t really want that, would you?
Here’s why you should take the chap stick more seriously.
Benefits Of Lip Balm
- A good SPF-infused lip balm protects your lips from toasty rays and keeps them from getting discolored and damaged.
- Say adios to dry, cracked lips or the pesky split lip, and get your lips acquainted with a hydrating and moisturizing lip balm. Period.
- Lips too thin? Well, ask yourself how many times you tend to your pout with a lip balm. Regular application of a heavy-duty balm can actually help plump your lips while also lessening the lines on your lips.
- If you weren’t aware, your lips flush out toxins to produce new skin cells as you catch your z’s during night-time. As a result, they tend to lose moisture overnight. This explains why it’s great to apply a coat of lip balm as you retire for the night to ensure hydration and protection.
- If you are looking to step out for a quick run but don’t want your lips to look dull sans a lipstick, opt for a tinted lip balm. It adds a pop of color and sheen without committing to a lipstick.
- A single layer of a lip balm, (thanks to its smooth texture) can make your lipstick glide like butter. Now who wouldn’t want that?
