Lip Balm FAQs

How does lip balm work?

Lip balm, is a moisturising layer applied to the lips to lock in moisture and relieve chapped or dry lips. Lip balms often contain hydrating ingredients such as butters and oils which act as a barrier between your lips and the environment preventing damage to the skin.

What are the benefits of using lip balm?

Lip balm can be used to hydrate and nourish the lips, as well as to protect them from the sun, wind, and cold weather. It can also be used to soothe chapped or dry lips, and to provide relief from the pain of cracked lips. Lip balm can be applied before or after applying lipstick, and can be used to help lipstick last longer.

How do I apply lip balm?

To apply lip balm, start by opening the tube and pushing up a small amount. Then, gently rub it over your lips until the balm is evenly distributed. You can also apply lip balm with a lip brush for a more precise application. If your lips are particularly dry or chapped, leave the lip balm on and reapply as needed throughout the day.

How often should I use lip balm?

The answer depends on a few factors. These include the climate you live in, the type of lip balm you are using, and your lips' natural moisture levels. In general, it is a good idea to apply lip balm regularly, especially if you live in a dry or cold climate. This will help to prevent your lips from becoming dry, chapped, or cracked.
