The scientists behind the new book Can You Get Hooked on Lipbalm? who blog at http://www.thebeautybrains.com/ have used their insider knowledge to investigate beauty myths.
Here is how lipbalm hooks you:
Applying it regularly confuses healthy cells into thinking that dry lips are sufficiently moisturized, causing a drop in new-cell production. Balms with the greatest potential for "addiction" contain high levels of pretrolatum or beeswax, which are the most efficient at keeping skin moist.
I guess this makes sense. I've been using Burt's Beeswax lipbalm since the 10th grade. I honestly can't use anything else, however, when I don't use it my lips just feel way too dry and I panick and reach for my lipbalm. I guess I need to find something new to nourish my lips.
What do you use to keep your lips smooth. Have you experienced the same things I have? Let me know!
