Women give lots of care and attention to their skin, some even practice the 10-step Korean skincare routine.

To make matter worse, lips have no sebum glands for to lubricate skin naturally.
Some lip balms might work for some and not for others, because certain ingredients could be potential allergens to those who have sensitive-prone skin. To keep your lips soft, look for emollients which are hydrating ingredients that absorb well into the skin while preventing moisture loss. The best emollients are natural oils like squalene, shea butter and lanolin.
Chapped lips are not sexy, so here are the top 10 lip balms to keep handy in your bag, and you’re guaranteed a plump and kissable pout. Just remember to exfoliate dry lips with a soft toothbrush or a lip scrub before showing it some TLC for best results.
