Honey is a powerful ingredient, not only in our meals but in our skin-care routine. Packed with vitamins and antioxidants, honey has anti-inflammatory properties that our lips crave, especially in cold weather. As a natural humectant, it’s also great for helping lips lock in moisture. In addition to all these benefits, honey products tend to have a terrific scent and smooth application. With more than a 69 percent increase in search year over year, according to Spate, honey lip balms are more popular than ever.
