THE BEST NATURAL LIP BALM FOR A SMILE THE WINTER CHILL CAN'T CRACK

The Best Natural Lip Balm For A Smile The Winter Chill Can't Crack

During the summer we may like to casually daub on tinted balm just for the sake of vanity (and SPF protection), but come winter a no-nonsense moisturizing lip salve is an absolute requisite for leaving the house.



Before we expose our mouths to dry, brisk air that ravages our lips and leaves them peeling and cracking (ick), we like to know we’ve slathered on the best lip balm out there. When it comes to uncomfortable chapping, we err on the side of caution. Shivering while sidestepping snow banks and puddles is bad enough without wearing a shriveled up pout.

If you're like us and you're cautious about what you apply to your über-absorbent smackers, you'll love this recipe for organic Mandarin Honey Lemon salve. For a full tutorial on how to concoct this homemade lip balm, check out the video below, starring YouTube personality Nap. Not only is the mixture amazingly effective, it also produces enough lip balm tins to cover you, your spouse, and the kids, along with a few extra tins to use as stocking stuffers come Christmastime.

If you'd rather just grab and go, click through the slideshow above for an expert's top picks for store-bought lip moisturizers. Prepare to pucker up, apply liberally, and kiss chapped lips goodbye.
