I recently returned to an old love… and he’s the sweetest pony! It’s been many years since I was able to ride consistently and this fall, I made the commitment to get back in the saddle. But although I adore riding, all of that extra time spent outdoors and has resulted in some seriously chapped lips (and it’s not even snowing, yet).
Recently though, I had read that some lip balms can actually hurt chapped lips, more than help. In the WebMD article “Could You Be Addicted to Lip Balm?” Stephanie S. Gardner, MD explains, “Some ingredients in lip balm can themselves dry or slightly irritate the skin of your lips. This can also push you into a pattern of more and more use.”
So, it’s best to avoid products with drying ingredients such as camphor, eucalyptus, lanolin, menthol, and salicylic acid. Luckily, my new Lip Balm from Lindi Skin – the sensitive skincare experts – relies on castor seed oil, beeswax, carnauba wax, and Vitamin E for a product that soothes dry, chapped lips completely.
Lindi Lip Balm was actually specially formulated for the unique needs of cancer patients (so you can imagine how gentle it is) and is excellent for anyone looking for a non-irritating balm.
The Lindi Lip Balm comes in a tiny 1/4 oz. jar that easily fits into a tote, handbag, and even the front pocket of my riding breeches! Even with multiple uses daily, this jar should last about a month.
Plus, this product is great for nails and cuticles, too. Simply use a Q-tip and massage in well for softer cuticles and less brittle nails. (With all of the grooming and barn work I’ve been doing lately, my hands are appalling. So, this is a major bonus!)
The Lindi Lip Balm retails for just $10.00. And, it’s part of a larger collection of skincare products designed for the most sensitive skin. A few of my favorites include the Soothing Balm, Body Lotion and Face Serum. To see the entire line, visit Lindi Skin.
