Look After Those Lips with Natural Lip Balm

If you're looking for natural lip balm that will improve the condition of your lips then this is the place for you.

I can't be without lip balm because I get sore and chapped lips, even in the summer. I was very surprised however, to learn that you can become addicted to using lip balm, lip salve, or chapstick, or at least develop a compulsion to using it!

Also, over-use can have counter effect and your lips can start to dry out very quickly if you stop using it. They become very painful, crack and bleed in no time at all. That's why some people can't live without it. Although this doesn't sound like a big problem, it isn't a good thing.

There's even a self-help site about it!

However, it is necessary and important to protect your lips from both the cold and hot weather by using lip balm. Lips burn easily in the cold and then dry out and the sun burns them too.

Below are some organic and natural lip balms as I figure steering clear of chemicals whenever possible is always wisest! I also found some great homemade recipes too.

Keeping your lips feeling and looking great has many advantages and one that fascinates me is that waitresses who wear red lipstick earn more tips!!

How to Improve the condition of your lips

This video is about a care routine. She has great lips and she and her remedy works immediately to relieve flaky or dry lips.

Exfoliate: An easy and cheap way of doing this is to apply a layer of Vaseline nice and thickly on both lips and rub then very gently with a soft toothbrush. Do this for about 2 minutes once a week. against them for about two minutes. Do this about once a week.

The video shows you this in more detail. You need some lip balm, hot water and a face cloth - hold the cloth over your lips, then with a clean mascara wand gently rub off the dead skin. Then add you lip balm - then add you lips tick over the balm.

Lemon

If you really want to stay natural and not use lip balm at all, apply the juice of a lemon on you lips before bed. Chapped lips gone!

Drink more water that will help

Organic Chapstick

There are many organic sticks on sale that work very well. Some are packed with flavors, others are colored and look like lipsticks.

I have picked out this one because it has a lot of very good customer reviews but there are others on Amazon.com. Just click on this one and you'll be taken directly to the Amazon site.

This one has no color or flavor, which works great for me. Sometimes I just want to know that the product is working hard to improve the quality of my lips without worrying about the color.



Can you use lip balm again after a cold?

Yes you can because you are immune to that strand of cold once you've had it. But obviously you would never share your lip balm with anyone!

Here's a great way to protect your lips!

Balm or Gloss?

Do not make the mistake of confusing lip balm with lip gloss because they are completely different products. The gloss is only cosmetic, it makes your lips appear shiny. A balm is a treatment that conditions your lips.

Lip Balm for Travel & Sport

If you're a traveler or are going somewhere where the weather will be starkly different to what you are used to, then lip balm will be an essential part of your survival kit.

Mountains and altitude will damage your lips, the wind and cold will cause painful sores and chaps and the thin air will let the sun's rays get to you faster, so you will need a high SPF or total sun block lip salve, which should also be applied to your nose and cheeks.

Beyond Coastal Active Lip SPF 15 Balm with Chap Wrap (.15-Ounce) and Sun Bum SPF 30 Lip Balm, Banana, 0.15-Ounce are strong - for people who are outside a lot.

My 13 year old son...

My son is probably not alone in this - he will not put on lip balm - I think he thinks it's lipstick - he just won't be told! So I have devised a great method! When his lips get sore I smear it on his mouth when he's fast asleep! Ta dah!

Homemade Naturl Lip Balm - Really easy recipe

Avoid Licking Your Lips

Strange as this might seem saliva actually dries lips out!

Excuse the pink!

Great DIY Lip Treatment - This guy knows what he's talking about! But I hate those pink lips!

If you're looking to improve the condition of your lips then this video is great. It's even better if you're into making your own natural products. But it is very interesting anyway.

The beginning doesn't look promising, but stick with it because he's very knowledgeable about vitamin etc.

Kehis Works immediately to soften your lips - but it is not organic - all the other products I have picked out for you in this article are.

I've included it because the guy in the video recommended it so highly.

It will really help you if you need to improve the condition of your lips urgently!

Deal of the Day

Please do leave a comment. I'd be very interested to know if there's a great lip balm out there that works well for you.

It's always great to hear from people who have tips and advice too.

Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Are you addicted to your lip balm? - Is it really such a problem? Which one do you use?

      Fortunately, I don't have a dry lip problem, likely because we live in a very humid climate and I drink a lot of water. Good to know about the healthy choices, though.

      @Donna Cook: There's a video on this lens where a young woman shows you how to make petroleum free lip slave and she uses beeswax. Perhaps you could try her recipe? Thanks very much indeed for your visit and comment.

      Great lens! Absolutely addicted to lip balm. My parents always put Vaseline on my chapped lips and was so glad to find Chapstick. I use the generic from Rite-Aid due to price and it works terrifically. Would love to find a home recipe as I live near several apiaries.

      @Merrci: Thanks Merry - I don't think lemon stings unless your lips are chapped. It's worth a tentative try!! Thanks so much for your visit.

      I use both of your brands here, Kiehls and hurts' Bees, but I really want to try the lemon juice. You'd think it would sting. Can't wait to see how it feels. Lemons are on the list. Good idea for a lens.
