Lip Balms and Moisturizers

What it is and what it is for?


As its name implies, this is a care that helps to moisturize the lips so that they don't get dry or cracked. This type of product was designed to restore the lips in the shortest time.
Lip moisturizer is an extremely important product, especially for people who have thin and sensitive skin.
In addition, this product can be used daily, whenever necessary, being very useful on cold and dry days.


What are the most used ingredients and their function?


Lip moisturizers can have several ingredients, but the most effective and common are the following:
Lanolin, which contains a molecular structure that naturally resembles skin lipids more than any other ingredient, and in addition, this ingredient promotes a breathable barrier that allows the lips to hydrate from the inside.
Vaseline, which is very economical and creates a protective barrier on the skin of the lips that prevents the loss of moisture.
Beeswax, an ingredient that conditions the lips and acts as a protective barrier to maintain moisture, deeply hydrate and promote the flexibility and smoothness of the lips.
Shea butter, quite common and beneficial, as it is rich in fatty acids, such as vitamins A and E, which help to repair skin cells, moisturize and protect the lips from environmental aggressors. Contains anti-inflammatory properties that soothe, soften & nourish lips.
Natural oils, such as avocado oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil, olive oil, sunflower oil and sweet almond oil, which are rich in moisturizing fatty acids and antioxidants that neutralize free radicals, moisturize the lips and prevent premature aging.
Hyaluronic acid, an ingredient that attracts and retains incredible amounts of moisture to the skin, moisturizing and enlarging the lips.


Which types exist and what are their differences?


One of the most common lip moisturizers is lip balm that aims to nourish, protect and repair the lips, such as Cold Cream Baume Lèvres by Avène and Oh Yeahh! Lip Balm by Oh Yeahh!.
There are also moisturizing lipsticks, being Tendertalk Lip Balm by M.A.C. a good example. That is, it is a lipstick that provides hydration, softness and protection, while promoting a beautiful color to the lips.
Moisturizing lip balms are also very effective, because in addition to moisturizing and softening the lips, they offer protection against the harmful effects of exposure to UV rays, such as Eight Hour Cream Lip Protectant Stick SPF15 by Elizabeth Arden.


What is the most used packaging format and what are the most frequent sizes?


The most common packaging of lip balms is in jar and stick.
Usually, the jar is most used for balms and the lip stick can be a moisturizing lipstick, a balm and a lip balm. There are also lip moisturizers in the shape of a tube and lip gloss.
Lip balms have different quantities, depending on the brand and the packaging format, but the most common ones range from 2gr to 10gr.


What to take into account when choosing a lip moisturizer?


When choosing a lip moisturizer, you should know your skin type and see if the moisturizer you want matches it.
In addition, you must choose the most suitable type, that is, lip balm, moisturizing lipstick, moisturizing protector or moisturizing cream. When choosing, you must take into account the respective textures and purpose and choose based on what you really need.
It is also important to choose a moisturizer that contains any of the ingredients mentioned above.


What are the recommendations for use and tips?


The lip moisturizer can be applied whenever necessary, so choose to make several reapplications throughout the day so that it will always moisturize and protect your lips.
If you intend to use lipstick, prioritize the use of moisturizer underneath and let it act for a few minutes and then put on the lipstick. In this case do not apply too much moisturizer, especially if it is creamy, otherwise your lipstick will not be well placed.
Finally, if you choose a moisturizer in a jar, wash your hands well before using it or use a spatula to pick up the product and wash after use, as this avoids contamination of the product.


What are the pros and cons of using lip moisturizer?


Lip moisturizer is a very gentle and non-aggressive treatment. However, if you have very sensitive lips, you should check the composition of the product in order to be sure that it will not be harmful.
Depending on the purpose of the moisturizer you choose, it can bring numerous benefits, such as: moisturizing, nourishing and repairing the lips; protect the lips from the harmful effects of exposure to UV rays; promote more beautiful and healthy lips.
