Lip balm makes our lips soft and supple, gorgeous and may we say, kissable too. In all forms, lipbalm is a must have in every girls’ pocket or purse, without which a day wouldn’t go. We are here today to talk about why natural lipbalms should be used. And we would also share lovely natural lipbalm recipes with you too.

Please read on and be well informed for the same, because DIY is the best way to save money and keep those lips supple and smiling too.

Why Natural Lip Balm?

Our lip skin is highly absorbent and hence needs the right amount of care, or else it would dry and chap. When you use too many commercial lip balms, the skin surrounding the lips would lose its elasticity. With plenty of dryness and low on elasticity, the lips would prematurely age as well and cause fine lines around the mouth region too.

Many commercial lip balms have chemicals in them which can be carcinogenic for the body.

  • They have parabens and fragrances that are harmful for your lips.
  • Traditional lip balms would have synthetic ingredients in them, some of which are petrochemicals which you really don’t want to put on your lips.
  • When it comes to the coloring part, traditional commercial ones have fake colors added to them.
  • Cruelty free beauty is what we fashionistas should aim for, and most commercial beauty companies test their products on unwilling animals.

Now that you know why we should use healthy natural lip balms made at home and not the commercial ones, let’s take a look at some easy weasy DIY lip balm recipes to try and make.
