Are your lips feeling cracked and dry after those cooler winter months?! Well beauties, I have good news! Summer is coming AND I'm going to give you the tips that will literally SAVE your lips and get that pout perfect for some summer lovin'.
Firstly, dry lips are a sign of DEHYDRATION so remember if your pout is less than plump, focus on what you are putting in your body first, and stock up on lots of water and herbal tea!
Once you're hydrating from the inside, it's time to add a little more nourishment from the outside - the NATURAL way!
Why you must be using natural and organic lip balms!
What you may not realise is that many mainstream lip balms are petroleum based! Petrol lips? Yuk! These chemical nasties can act as endocrine disruptors, cause immunotoxicity and have even been proven to be carcinogenic. But not to fear! We have some amazing alternatives that will moisturise, nourish and protect your lips without compromising your health!
