Lips get much more sensitive than other parts of the face, which is why we must pay attention and protect them, especially during the cold season. The most effective way to do so is to apply lip balm two to three times a day.
Indeed, the lips, unlike the skin of the face, do not have a natural protective barrier. However, we know some lip balms can be quite expensive.
Therefore to save money and still moisturize your lips to prevent them from cracking, we suggest making your own lip balm.
