Lip balm - it is one of the most common cosmetic products found in almost every woman's handbag.
Since most of us have problems with dry and chapped lips, especially during the winter, nourishing lip balms are a real salvation! Wind and cold are one of the main causes of dry and chapped skin, including lips. The skin of the lips is particularly sensitive to external influences in the winter, so we often have a feeling of dryness and tightness of the lips as a result of excessive exposure to cold.
WHY USE LIP BALM?
BEESWAX - one of the main ingredients
Bee products can slow down the aging process of the skin and restore its structure. Beeswax has long been used to treat wounds and skin diseases, and thanks to its regenerative, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, beeswax is still used today in medicine, pharmacy, cosmetics and industry.
It is an almost unavoidable ingredient in many cosmetic products, especially in lip balms because it perfectly combines all the ingredients in it and gives it a characteristic structure. Vitamin A and F in it prevent the skin from drying out, enable the achievement of smooth lips, but also the necessary moisture.
Unlike lip balms, which contain Vaseline and paraffin, those based on beeswax help the lips to keep hydration for a long time and do not dry out the lips.
No lips deserve to be chapped or dry. Whether you use lip balm every day or in certain situations, remember these common but natural ingredients, and how they can help your lips feel healthy, beautiful and well-groomed.
From beeswax to Vaseline - people come up with a variety of ways to prevent their lips from drying out and cracking, especially when the colder days come. The inhabitants of ancient Egypt used beeswax, olive oil and animal fats for the purpose of cosmetics, for skin and lip care.
