Lip balms can be a serious addiction. A quick peek into my every day you can find lip balm in every handbag I own, on my nightstand, in my car... ev.er.y.where.
I know I’m not along in my addiction. In fact, if you were ever about to be stranded on an island and could only take with you 3 beauty items, I’m going to guess that your favorite lip balm is probably on that list. I mean– on a hot, dry, island? It’s a no-brainer… BUT did you know that, that lip balm may just come in handy for a variety of other uses on that island and in your every day life?
Below are a few lip balm hacks that may or may not save your life
Fly-aways are THE. WORST. I personally have these teeny tiny baby hairs right up front that do not grow… they just exist for the simple purpose to torture me on the daily. Much to their dismay though, I’ve found that a little dab of lip balm put’s them in their place.
Give A Little TLC to Dead Ends
The summer sun, salty ocean and pool chlorine can really do damage to our locks, leaving ends brittle and dead. Putting a little lip balm on the ends of your hair can soften them up a bit. You can even apply it to your ends before you head out to the pool or beach for a little added protection.
We’ve all had to touch up our own roots or turned to good ol’ box dye at one time or another. Adding a little lip balm around the frame of your face before you start will save you from getting stuck scrubbing dye off your skin!
Perfect That Mani
Lip balm is ultimately a moisturizer, yea? Well turns out it moisturizes your cuticles just as well as it moisturizes your pout! This can also come in handy when prepping for a DIY Mani. The lip balm will keep paint off your your skin!
Extend Your Fragrance
Ever put on your favorite perfume in the morning, only to find the scent completely vanished by noon? Adding a little lip balm can help; just add a little to your wrist or neck before spritzing your favorite perfume will extend the scent.
