Does Lip Butter Work?

Do you use natural lip balms and butters? If not, you really should be. The skin on your lips is very thin, and it doesn't have the oil glands the rest of the body has. That’s why your lips dry out unless you keep them moisturized. Here are reasons natural lip butter is the perfect product to keep your lips hydrated, soft, and supple.

  • When the weather robs your lips of moisture, lip butter helps. In the winter, low humidity and harsh weather can make your lips crack. In the summer, heat and sun exposure dry out your lips. Lip butter replenishes your lips’ moisture, whatever the season.
  • Lip butter repairs unsightly chapped or flaky lips. Applying lip butter regularly on your lips keeps them looking smooth and moisturized.
  • Lip butter protects your pout. When people age, their lips get thinner and need extra protection. Lip butter not only provides a protective outer layer, but it also makes lips appear plumper.
  • Lip butters are multitaskers. Use a colorless variant on your cuticles or dab a tinted shade on your cheeks! 

Of course, when you’re choosing something to apply on your lips, you’ll want to pick something free from toxins and dangerous ingredients. That’s why it’s so important to choose cruelty-free and vegan lip products with nourishing essential oils and other nutrient-packed ingredients.
