Kissing is one of the biggest joys in life, but it sure does dry out lips. That along with some of the biting winter winds means that a girl needs to keep on top of lip maintenance. I see so many women (and men) applying Vaseline and other generic lip balms. Although anything moist gives instant relief, many of these mineral oil based products simply sit on the skin's surface. They may well provide a barrier, but they don't permeate and moisturise. What's more, they can cause blemishes around the lip and chin area because the surrounding skin can struggle to breathe. For this reason I suggest a natural and inexpensive alternative. I'm loving Burt's Bees Mango lip balm. It's beautifully scented and works pretty darn quickly too. Perfect to pop into your handbag for top ups.
