The Benefits of Regularly Using Lip Balm

There's a well-known expression about licking your lips in anticipation of something good happening. Yet, many people find that developing a habit of licking their lips too frequently can leave them feeling dried-out and uncomfortable. This is particularly true when the climate is quite dry, hot or cold - each element can adversely affect the surface of the lips.

An interesting truth about your lips

You hear many different descriptions of a person's lips, ranging from thick and luscious to thin and drawn tight. However, such descriptions can often be used to describe the behaviour or attitude of an individual. In reality, the skin on human lips is actually quite thin, which can easily lead to a dried-out surface.

It's believed that this thinness has developed as a key human characteristic to aid with managing the intake of food or drink. Another likelihood is that this offers the pliability necessary for speech.

What lip balm adds

Lip balm is thicker than an ordinary body lotion, making application easy and retention more likely. Its use delivers a layer that both moisturises and then protects; both actions are very valuable when lips are regularly exposed to the harsh heat and dryness of our typical Australian climate.

Such protection also allows lips the chance to gently heal if they have been harmed by this exposure, or by other events such as the ingestion of salty or highly-spiced food, or even tiny cuts suffered when eating.

Protecting our environment as well as your lips

When choosing a lip balm, an increasing commitment to protecting our planet - as well as our lips - can make natural, vegan & cruelty free products an obvious choice.

Of course, there are other ways to make the best of our lips. Actress Audrey Hepburn suggested: 'For beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness'. To be frank, Roman poet Ovid probably didn't have lip balm in mind two thousand years ago when he said that 'Lips, however rosy, must be fed'. But it's not a bad mantra to have for keeping your lips in the best of health!

COLD PROCESSED SOAPS
COLD PROCESSED SOAPS

June 26, 2022

One of the main benefits of cold process soap making is having complete control over ingredients. This is why we chose this process. Like all of our Scrubba products, we are very particular about what goes into them. Cold process soap has no added detergents, which strip the skin of its natural oils and can cause allergic reactions. Additional ingredients are also added to increase the skin loving benefits, like oats, kaolin and a bunch of other botanicals. Depending on the ingredients you use, cold process soap making typically yields a long-lasting bar of soap.

A LONG WEEKEND IN NEWCASTLE

We love our city and with the QT Newcastle opening on Thursday (they’ll be stocking some of our products!), we’ve been thinking about how amazing it is to have another beautiful hotel in the city. Then we were thinking about how great of a place for tourists our city is, with so many things to do. I’ve just had friends visit from out of state who were shocked with how many amazing restaurants, bars, beaches, and general cool things there were to do around Town. So I thought I’d put together some of my favourite places to go, things to eat, drink and see.
