Lip Balm

One would think lip balm is just for vanity purposes. But this one had been recommended by the doctor when my kids were confined for dengue fever. Both kids experienced dried and chapped lips because of high grade fever. I’m also using this once in a while to moisten my lips especially when the weather is dry and humid.

Lip balm or lip salve is a waxy substance applied topically to the lips of the mouth to relieve chapped or dry lips, angular cheilitis, stomatitis, or cold sores. Lip balm often contains beeswax or carnauba wax, camphor, cetyl alcohol, lanolin, paraffin, and petrolatum, among other ingredients. Some varieties contain dyes, flavor, fragrance, menthol, phenol, salicylic acid, and sunscreens. – wikipedia
