Many commercial lip balms contain artificial ingredients that might be harmful and can actually dry out lips. Using natural ingredients to soothe and protect the delicate skin on and around your lips is a much better way to face the elements. Because camphor is mildly antiseptic, it numbs the peripheral nerves, easing the pain of dry, cracked skin. And beets—which are often used in natural makeup products for color—give the balm a luscious red tint.
