According to Dr Aleksander Krunic, a dermatologist at Swedish Covenant Hospital, and dermatology professor at many prestigious universities, you should avoid lip balms with fragrances and artificial colour, which can cause lip irritation. Lip skin is far more sensitive than the skin on other parts of the body and is much more likely to become irritated.
He says to avoid lip balms with the following ingredients:
• Fragrance and artificial colours • Menthol, camphor and phenol, which cool and anesthetise the lips, but can cause dryness, redness and swelling • Alcohol • Salicylic acid – don’t use if allergic to aspirin • Aloe butter moisturises and soothes, but can irritate lips • Vitamin E is an antioxidant but can irritate lips
