Is it OK to wear lip balm all the time?
You should try to use lip balm in moderation. In fact, some dermatologists believe that overuse could cause your lips to stop producing natural oils. They also caution that you could feel dependent on the balm for moisture. Despite these warnings, it’s still safe for you to use lip balm every day.
How long does lip balm stick last?
You’ll likely use it up before it does, but ChapStick only lasts for two to three years.

Can you be addicted to lip balm?
Using Lip Balm Can Become a Habit You might use it a lot because you enjoy the feeling of smooth, moist lips or the tingling some ingredients, such as menthol, can cause. But if your lip balm use doesn’t disrupt your life, relationships, or work, it’s not really a behavioral addiction. It’s just a habit.
Does lip balm make your lips bigger?
While a traditional lip balm won’t increase lip size, it will keep lips hydrated and moist. Be sure and apply balm after eating and before you go to bed at night to maximize its effect.
What is chapstick made of whale sperm?
No whale sperm, nor any whale product, is used in lip balm. Nor is any other creature’s sperm for that matter. In the past, and to a small extent still today, ambergris, a waxy substance found in the intestines of sperm whales, was and is used in the production of certain perfumes.
When should you throw away lip balm?
Lip balm does expire, but there isn’t a “one time fits all” expiration date. When it comes to lip balms containing sunscreens and skin protectants (i.e. zinc oxide or titanium dioxide), both ChapStik and Burt’s Bees recommend tossing the balms after one year.
Do lip balms dry out lips?
“Lip balms containing ingredients like phenol, menthol and salicylic acid actually make your lips drier. So you apply more, and it becomes a vicious cycle.” Some of these product also cause a tingling feeling when you apply them. This either causes irritation or removes outer layers of the skin, like an exfoliant.
