As the cooler months draw in, and the central heating is switched on there is an inevitable drying of skin and in particular lips. The reason; a lack of moisture in the air caused by the cold and moisture sapping central heating. Lips fail to produce hydrating oil (sebum) like the rest of the skin, so hydration needs to be sourced from elsewhere.

One of our favourite lip balm brands of all time; Burt’s Bees, creator of the legendary¬†Burt’s Bees Beeswax Lip Balm has just been unearthed as the no.1 brand in the UK Premium Sector for Lip Balm. The research was conducted by NPD Group, a leading global beauty market research company.

This timely award was a.) worth mentioning and b.) a good opportunity to point you in the direction of Burt’s Bees Lip Balm to ease any chapped lips now or over the coming months.

Available in a variety of ‘flavours’ from original beeswax through to honey. Comes in a tin or tube.
