The use of lipbalm in winter is well known. Tubs, tubes and sticks of it are carried around by Brits in a bid to salve chapped lips that suffer from the harsh weather. However, we didn’t realise the full extent of uses suggested by SheKnows, which we list here:
Harsh weather can play havoc with the skin on our hands and nails. It’s not messy and it’s easy to apply. If it can hydrate lips, why not your cuticles too?
Fingernails aren’t the only things that dry out. Use lip balm to smooth the ends of hair, especially in the winter when hair is dry. It is great for curly or very porous ends that need a little extra attention. A little goes a long way.
Just because you’re using other products on your lips doesn’t mean you have to skip the body part lip balm was made for. Lip balm should be used even when you’re using lipstick, it fills in cracks and makes an even surface for the next product being placed on the lips!
Also try lip balm on other features. Lip balm can be used lightly on the eyelids with eyeshadow to give a shimmer.
I know a lot of people who get dry noses from having a cold during the winter from those darn scratchy tissues! I tell people to get a medicated chapstick and simply write «N» (for nose) on the top, so you don’t use it for your lips, and use that on your nose when you’re done blowing. It soothes the skin around the nose so that it doesn’t dry and get flaky, and since it’s in a stick you don’t have to put your finger to apply it to your nose for sanitary reasons.
Use lip balm to tame eye-brows gone astray. Stick some lip balm on as a brow tamer, along with a spoolie brush/wand.» Simply apply a little to the eyebrows and use your eyebrow brush for shaping.
