Lip balm is one of the top essentials that any woman must carry along. Our lips need to stay hydrated and moisturised in both winter and summer, these weather fluctuations affect our skin as well as our lips.
Most of us find that lips are first to become dry, chapped and start to peel which can be very bothersome. Hence, finding something natural and friendly for your lips is important, in fact there are so many options to choose from but not all are guaranteed to be natural.
Therefore, it is best to create your own lip care product using 100% natural ingredients that will keep your lips soft and protect them from the sun and the cold. It’s a simple process that will cost you less time and money that could be spent otherwise on artificial products. You can produce homemade lip balms for you and your friends that are very practical and unique.
