Benefits Of Using Coconut Oil As A Lip Balm

  • Coconut oil is a natural moisturizer. It locks the moisture of your lips and makes them soft and supple. The oil forms a lipid layer on the skin that decreases water evaporation and the resultant dryness.
  • It contains SPF (Sun Protection Factor) and is, therefore, a natural sunscreen that protects the delicate skin of your lips from the harmful sun rays.
  • The oil is antibacterial and prevents the growth of bacteria and other germs on cracked lips.
  • It soothes your skin and treats chapped lips by reducing inflammation.
  • Coconut oil encourages collagen production – this aids skin repair and heals damaged lips.

There is nothing that coconut oil cannot do (okay, mostly). Just when you think it has enough benefits, you find out more! One cosmetic product that we use regularly is a lip balm, and when you know coconut oil makes for a perfect lip balm, why not try it out? Go for it, my friend!
