Why Natural Lip Balm Actually Works | Hudson Valley Skin Care

If there is one thing we don’t have time for, it’s crusty lips. We all want our lips to be soft and moisturized, and lip balm seems like the perfect solution to your dry lip problems. The only problem is… most lip balms only further dry out your lips. We’re going to break down why you need to stop using regular lip balms, and exactly what you should be using instead.

Most lip balms only provide your lips with temporary relief, but actually end up leaving them more cracked and irritated. Part of this problem is the fact that the moisture the lip balm provides evaporates, and leaves your lips even more dehydrated. That’s why we created a lip balm with all-natural ingredients proven to increase the overall moisture and health of your lips. Our special formulas combine nourishing butters and oils to leave your lips soft and smooth long after application.

Sunflower Seed Oil

Sunflower Seed Oil is antioxidant and vitamin-rich, actually increasing the health of your lips rather than putting a temporary bandage on dry, chapped lips. Sunflower Seed Oil is also high in Linoleic Acid, an anti-inflammatory ingredient known to protect and repair the skin barrier.

Avocado Oil

Avocado Oil is another immensely effective skin hydrator. This ingredient has been known to decrease the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the skin, leaving your lips softer and plumper after application.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E is one of our favorite skincare ingredients. Vitamin E works to prevent and repair free radical damage, calming inflammation and redness while sinking necessary nutrients into your skin barrier. 

If you’re anything like us, lip balm never leaves your side, but choosing the right lip balm is key to hydrated, healthy lips. Our all-natural Lip Balms don’t leave your lips feeling dry or dehydrated once it’s faded, instead leaving behind supple, moisturized lips.
