10 Best Lip Balms for Dry Lips in India|| Say goodbye to chapped lips

Lip balm is the first ever beauty product I used and that was ages back when I was in school. I used to carry a Vaseline tube with me and it did a decent job of saving my young chapped lips and then  I slowly started experimenting with different lip balms like Himalaya, ayur etc. Back then I wasnt a beauty junkie but now I have become a lip balm hoarder of sorts specially since I seem to have forever dry lips.

I have used many different lip balms from various brands over the years and today I will be listing down some of the best lip balm for dry lips easily available in India. If saving chapped lips is your main concern you should go for lip balms which heal and protect rather than tinted lip balms which add colour to your lips. You can apply these non tinted lip balms in the night before going to bed and use a tinted lip balm with SPF during day time. If you have peeling and flaky super chapped lips you should try exfoliating with a DIY lip scrub atleast twice a week along with applying lip balms.
