If you are living under dry weather conditions, the probability of your lips becoming dry is high, and they may get cracks due to dehydration. So, to protect your lips under these conditions, you can choose a good lip balm and apply over your lips. They tend to keep your lips moist to prevent dryness and cracks.
There are many varieties of lip balms commercially available in the local market. These lip balms are mainly made from the base of petrolatum which is nothing but petroleum jelly. Nowadays there are new varieties of lip balm that are made from other sources, instead of petroleum jelly, like:
• Shea butter
• Sweet almond oil
• Castor oil
• Jojoba oil
• Cocoa butter
How to choose the best lip balm? Well, it basically depends on what purpose you are going to use them. For example, if you want to use it every day during winter or dry weather conditions, you can go for common varieties that come at an affordable price. In case you are going for an amateur sport or similar outdoor activity, choose a lip balm with sunscreen and the desired SPF. For overnight purpose, you may not need lip balm with sunscreen compound. For children, it is better to buy lip balm with sunscreen ingredients so that their lips will get protection from sun damage.
Do you know that lip balm comes tinted as well as flavored? Flavored lip balms are certainly liked by anyone, especially by children.
In general, men have fewer tendencies to go for lip balm, so there is no special lip balm meant for men. If you are buying lip balm for men, choose something that is masculine styled.
Some of the best lip balms for chapped lips being recommended by cosmetologists are:
• Sweet Butter Sugared Rose Tinted Lip Balm
• Burt’s Bees – Beeswax Lip Balm Tube
• Lip Balm “French Vanilla” Spf 15
For gifting purposes you can even get the custom lip balms or the personalized lip balms.
