Top 10 Lip Balms for Men

No matter what, you should always use a lip balm daily. Protecting your lips to keep them soft, smooth and healthy, it’s the skincare tool you can carry with you everywhere.  Of course, it can be hard to choose the perfect one with such a large range available to purchase. That’s why here at Mankind, we’ve chosen the very best lip balms for men for you to pick one. Still unsure of the importance of using one? Carry on reading below.

Why Should Men Use a Lip Balm?

There are plenty of great lip balms for men on the market, so if you suffer from dryness, irritation, or chapped lips, there’s no reason you shouldn’t pick one up for yourself. The skin of the lips is both particularly thin, and has a particularly high concentration of cold receptive cells. For this reason, when temperatures drop, your lips suffer particularly badly. Lip balms are without question the most effective way of dealing with this,

How Does Lip Balm Work?

Lip balm is usually a waxy substance which coats the lips. Featuring moisturising properties, it relieves chapping and dryness, as well as preventing it from worsening. Creating a barrier between your skin and the environment, it stops moisture from escaping, keeping them soft and smooth.

When to Use Lip Balm

You should use lip balm whenever your lips begin to feel slightly dry, or if you’re suffering with pain and chapping. Applying it before you go outside will also protect your lips from becoming damaged by the sun, heat, cold or wind.
