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!
