Lip balm: a lip moisturizer

With cold, wind, heat or other agents, the lips tend to dry out and flake. The solution to this problem is very simple, just hydrate them with the help of a good lip balm.

Lip balm is simply a lip product whose main function is to keep lips hydrated and soft. You may not know it, but lip balm is several years old. Specifically, it was created in 1880 with the aim of maintaining moisture in this area of ​​the face.

The skin of the lips is characterized by being quite thin and weak, since it does not have sebaceous glands or melanin that keep them moist and protected. Therefore, when applying the balm, the lips feel protected for longer as well as softened, regenerated and nourished.

Do you really know what balms are made of? Currently on the market, there are a large number of brands that market this type of product and that differ in terms of their packaging, texture or ingredients used.

Regarding the ingredients, the balms are made mainly of wax. This, in turn, tends to be enriched with other ingredients such as beeswax, lanolin, shea butter, aromas, perfumes, almond oils, calendula, aloe vera, hyalutonic acid, vitamins, dyes and protection factor. I advise you to choose balms that contain protection factor , in this way you prevent the damage that the sun's rays could cause in them.

You will also have been able to see how brands have been developing new balms with different formats. You can find everything from lipstick-shaped balms to creamy or gel balms.

The same goes for its tonality. In the beginning, the balms used to be transparent and colorless. However, cosmetic brands have been concerned with creating balms that add color and shine to the lips. A great idea if we also want to use it as a makeup product!

Now you know everything about this wonderful product. In the next point, I will make you a recommendation of products that you will love.
