Say No to Chapped Lips with These Lip Balms

Since lips don’t contain oil glands like other parts of the skin, it is more susceptible to drying out and becoming cracked. The solution? Lip balm…

Increased sun exposure in the summer can worsen cracked lips. And it can still get even worse due to our own habits. Yes, habitual licking of the lips actually strips away moisture and causes more dryness. So, here we have curated a selection of lip balms to help you keep your lips properly moisturized all day and avoid chapped lips.

Formulated according to the ecobiology principles through the heart of NAOS, the Bioderma approach respects the skin’s own ecosystem and preserves its health. The Atoderm Stick lèvres restores dry, chapped lips thanks to its nourishing active ingredient: Shea butter, which biologically repairs and regenerates weakened lips, leaving it supple and soft.

Featuring a rich blend of honey, cacao seed, and vanilla, Sensatia Botanicals Cocoa & Honey Lip Bliss softens lips with a sweet chocolatey aroma. The natural emollients provide deep hydration, restoring moisture to parched lips, while antioxidants help protect against damage. Lips are left looking and feeling satiny smooth.

Using Shea butter—which is known to help protect moisture levels, restore suppleness, and improve the appearance of dry skin—together with squalene in replenishing the skin barrier, Kiehl’s Facial Fuel No-Shine Moisturizing Lip Balm is made for men to nourish their lips.
