Learning about Lip Balm…..Why should you use it during the Winter?

Lip Balm can be one of the most effective tools in fighting the elements, especially during the winter months.  There are many choices when you are researching lip balms.  A couple of factors to keep in mind, when looking for the right choice, are environment and use.  The ingredients contained within the tube are very important to help you choose the right one for you.

Our environment can be very harsh on our lips.  Cold, windy, and dry environments cause damage to our lips before we notice.  The cold temperatures cause our lips to lose moisture at a rapid pace and the wind amplifies the drying effect.  Lip Balm allows us to protect our lips. It provides a barrier that keeps environmental elements out and keeps moisture in.
Using lip balm is the best way to fight against cold, windy weather during the winter months.  Selecting the right lip balm to fight these elements is crucial. Our lip balm is made from 100% all natural ingredients with this purpose in mind.

The ingredients in our Cool Breeze lip balm are beeswax, almond oil, coconut oil, pure peppermint essential oil and menthol crystals.  These ingredients provide many benefits to our clients.  Beeswax is one of the main ingredients and it has been shown to have healing, softening, and antiseptic benefits as well as providing the barrier to keep the cold, drying effects of winter away.  Coconut oil gives the lip balm the essential moisturizing effect, helping give our lips that full, beautiful appearance.  Almond oil is the perfect compliment to coconut oil and aids in moisturizing your lips.  Pure peppermint essential oil has been used in treating such skin conditions as eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis.  The healing effects this essential oil offers are second to none. Menthol Crystals used in a topical form, such as lip balm, help to cool and refresh.  This cooling benefit is especially evident when eating spicy foods.
