8 Lip Balms That Are Kid-Safe & Parent-Approved


As the temperatures drop, dry skin is pretty much a given. Along with adding extra layers, the winter months call for giving the skin a little extra TLC. That's why it's more important than ever to make sure you are keeping your kid's skin hydrated and moisturized. If you want to keep your kids' lips from being dry and cracked throughout the cold season, you should know about the lip balms that are kid safe.

It's easy to remember to lather lotions and creams on your child's skin after bath time, but the lips are often a forgotten body part when it comes to moisturizing. But if you are diligent enough to moisturize your child's lips, you may be worried about the ingredients in the products you choose. After all, whatever you put on your child's lips will almost certainly end up in their belly once they've licked it off. Fortunately, there are lots of organic and natural lip balm brand alternatives that are made with ingredients that will put your mind at ease. And because they are natural, they're safe enough to apply to your child's lips several times each day.

So get to your drugstore and stock up on some of these lip balms that are safe for your kids' lips. Drop a tube in every backpack and handbag in your house. Trust me, your lips will thank me later.
