Take our quiz to find the best natural lip balm for you!Posted on May 4, 2023 Written by: 100% PURE®
How many natural lip balms do you own? Some might call our lip balm collection excessive, but we NEED a lip balm for quite a few different lip-smacking reasons. Try the car to hydrate on all those sunny weekend road trips. Oh, and a purse balm for every day. Let’s not forget a lip balm by the bed to ensure silky lips when you wake up. And then obviously, we need one for our desk at work…just in case.
These are just some of the typical uses and places to have a healthy balm on hand – and lips! When you have the best lip balm to treat your lips with TLC, you might become just as obsessed as us. So, as you can see, we all know that natural lip balms are a must for healthy, soft lips in a pinch wherever you may roam. But which lip balm is right for your unique pucker?
Our lips are not sealed when it comes to singing the praises of our natural lip balms as your everyday beauty heroes for all the work your lips do and as protection from UV rays and other environmental assailants. Learn more – plus take our quiz to find your perfect natural lip balm!
It’s time to unzip our lips on why a natural lip balm is not only a beauty staple, but the unsung hero for a healthy, soft, and luscious pucker. Natural lip balms do lips service as the skin on our lips is way different from the skin on any other part of our body. It sheds differently and needs a little extra care to stay hydrated.
On top of that, just like our hands, our lips are movin’, movin’! We’re using them every time we, eat, drink, smile, give our honey a smooch, and if you’re a “Chatty Cathy, move and talk A LOT. This puts great pressure on our lips, like drying them out, which can cause cracks, sores, and even wrinkles. But do we protect our pouts from environmental factors?
As a matter of fact, our lips don’t get a lot of protection when it comes to environmental aggressors and sun exposure. When was the last time you applied sunscreen or an SPF balm to your lips?
It might sound odd to put something as strong as sun protection on the lips, yet sunscreen is even more useful for the lips because of lip texture and behavior.
As we mentioned before, the skin on our lips is different from anywhere else on our bodies; it’s much thinner. The added protection from SPF can really help shield lips from extreme light and heat, fierce howling winds, and icy cold temperatures. At the very least, if any environmental element aggravates your lips, use a natural, soothing and healing lip balm.
SPF in lip balm also helps protect and retain the natural collagen in the lips for a little more pucker and a little less pout. We believe in protecting our smoochers using organic ingredients, natural oils, and smoothing, silky butters that make our lips feel loved. And, the rest is lip-tory - but that’s after you find the best natural lip balm for a happy, healthy pout.
