Beeswax Lip Care: Are you hooked?
One of my desert island essential items that I carry with me everywhere, apart from my phone, Mastercard and Keys is a Beeswax Lip Balm. Some may see that as an odd addition to my pocket or bag, but it is something I have got used to carrying since I was at school, and that was now many decades ago. Is a lip balm one of your essential items?
Looking after your lips is super easy when you think about it, you just need a good balm to keep them hydrated and soft. Not only does it stop them looking dry and feeling tight and uncomfortable, but you can easily layer a balm over a lipstick to help maintain the staying power of your favorite shade, something I have done for years! The Burt's Bees Lip Care Lip Balm with Beeswax is perfect for everyone to carry with them, a product currently on my bedside table right now. It is designed so even people with sensitive lips can use it, and it is formulated with not only Bee's Wax but with added Vitamin E and Peppermint.
This one is my favorite from the range, it's the original and I find it layers well over lipstick if needed for some extra moisture and shine. It leaves my lips soft and the added peppermint has a lovely cooling effect which I like. Burt's Bees offer many different varieties of lip balm so they are worth a little browse when you need to replace yours. They have some with a tint, some with specialised ingredients for a lip concern you may have, some even have a slight taste.
Looking after your lips is super easy but is not something you should pass on. If you don't keep them moisturised they can become dry and cracked, causing a horrible uncomfortable feeling and sometimes pain. It is also unsightly to have uncared for lips, as people will notice instantly when they look at you as the face, and therefore lips are one of the first things people see. Using a lip balm also helps create a protective barrier between your lips and the harshness of daily life, keeping away damage that can be caused by horrible weather, strong foods, UV rays and kissing boys. The skin on your lips is very delicate and has no glands meaning they don’t naturally moisturise like other parts of the body, so we must give them a little help.
A quick swipe of a Beeswax Lip Balm is my easy go-to for lip care and very is very cost effective, whether I am in full glam or just lounging around the house I always have one close to me. They’re a perfect recommendation to look after and protect your lips. Is a lip balm one of your go-to products? As it certainly is mine!
