Chapped lips are a common problem, especially in the dry winter months. They can be comfortable, unsightly, and painful if left untreated. Thankfully, you can prevent it from happening with the use of lemon chapstick. It is one of the many products that can moisturize and soothe dry lips.
Moisturizing Properties of Lemon Chapstick
Here at Arizona Sun, we offer lip balm that moisturizes and protects your lips. It contains citric acid that can help exfoliate dead skin cells and promote the growth of new, healthy skin. Lemons are a natural humectant. Thus, it can lock in moisture and keep your lips hydrated. When it is combined with other moisturizing ingredients, like shea butter and beeswax, it can provide intense hydration to even the driest lips.
Refreshing Scent and Taste
Another benefit of this product is its refreshing scent and taste. Since it is lemon, it has a bright, citrusy aroma that can uplift the mood and invigorate your senses. It makes this product a great choice if you want a little pick-me-up throughout the day. The asset of lemon also masks any unpleasant tastes or odors in your mouth. It makes it a great option if you struggle with bad breath or dry mouth.
Great for Sensitive Skin
Many lip balms contain harsh chemical and synthetic fragrances. They are known to irritate delicate skin. But Arizona Sun’s lip balm is made from natural ingredients, like sunflower, safflower, jojoba, castor seed, and mineral oils. You can also wear it either under or over lipstick. With these natural ingredients, this product is gentle and non-irritating, which is perfect for sensitive skin.
You can use it in a variety of ways. In addition to moisturizing and refreshing properties, this product is also used as a lip primer. It can help in creating a smooth base for lipstick or lip gloss. It can also be used as a cuticle balm.
Is It a Good Treatment for Cold Sores?
This is a great choice if you want to keep your lips soft, healthy, and moisturized. However, it is not advisable to be used for cold sores. The reason for this is that cold sores are caused by a virus. Thus, you will need antiviral medication to treat this condition. It is also important to note that lip care does not cause cold sores.
When Is the Best Time to Apply It?
You can use it at any time. However, you should re-apply it every few hours. It is particularly useful during the summer months when the weather is hot and humid. Lemon has natural antiseptic and astringent properties that can help soothe and refresh your lips while also providing a refreshing scent.
Even though this product tastes like lemon, it is not acidic. It does not irritate sensitive or cracked lips. Rather, it offers moisturizing effects to your chapped, dry, or cracked lips. It can also help in exfoliating dead skin cells while revealing smoother and softer lips. Plus, if you have discolored lips, it may help lighten it.
