The use of a lip balm is the best way to defend lips against harsh weather conditions. The skin of the lips is thinner than in any other part (except for eyelids) of the body. They practically have no protection against wind, changes in temperature, humidity and UV rays and therefore require special care and attention. This is where lip balm comes to the rescue. It not only nourishes, protects and heals dry and chapped lips, but it also leaves them looking fuller and feeling fresh. Lakshmi often draws inspiration from Ayurveda to create its products. According to Ayurveda, natural extracts such as oils, flowers and plants can keep the skin soft and healthy for a long time. Our Ayurvedic lip care balms are 100% natural and contain a rich blend of ingredients. These lip balms have a pleasant fragrance and are not sticky; they are the ideal natural treatment for lips that takes into account the different needs of the three Ayurvedic constitutions: Vata, Pitta and Kapha. The Kapha lip balm contains nourishing vegetable butters and oils that leave the lips velvety soft; at the same time coriander has a toning and energising effect, while tea tree, propolis and neem purify and heal cold sores or those small unpleasant cuts in the corners of the mouth.
