Does Lip Balm Dry Out Lips: Featuring Dr. Green

“Does Lip Balm Make Your Lips Even More Dry and Chapped? Here’s What Dermatologists Say” was featured on this afternoon, where Dr. Green was quoted several times.   Lip Balm in general is meant to help moisturize, but sometimes the ingredients can cause issues, especially in winter months.  “There is no rule of thumb as to how often you should apply [lip balm],” Green said. “[Lip balm] should be applied to the lips when they feel dry or chapped and can be re-applied throughout the day, [but certain] ingredients can lead to increased dryness when overused.”

And even in the cold winter weather, finding a lip balm with SPF 15 or higher can help protect your lips from sun damage.  Try to find lip balms with ingredients such as Hyaluronic acid, Petroleum jelly, Shea butter, Beeswax and Vitamin E.
