With summer finally here you’re probably packing your bags to hit the beach, the road or just your back yard. There's nothing like burnt & chapped lips! Now you can ensure your pucker is always on point this summer with these pocket-sized travel essentials from Carmex and tips from Shannon Tor, Director of Research & Development for Carma Laboratories, the company that makes Carmex lip balms!
- Soaring temps can leave your lips dehydrated because “your lips don't have any oil-producing or sebaceous glands so the only moisture they get is from saliva,” explains Shannon Tor. Saliva in turn “evaporates quickly and enzymes in which dissolve oils, which can actually lead to dry, chapped lips.” Be sure to pack Carmex Lip Balm ($1.59) in a tube to keep them hydrated!
- Hotter weather can leave your makeup melting so this summer go lipstick-free and instead sport well moisturized and protected lips with the Carmex Protecting Lip Balm Sticks ($1.59). Plus, Shannon Tor explains that your natural lips are designed to be flaunted “since your lips have fewer layers of skin than the rest of your body, underlying blood vessels, blood-filled capillaries, are close to the surface, giving your lips a reddish or pink tint.”
