Particularly hot and dry weather can make rough and cracked lips. Prior to protect lip balm. 40 percent of all women smear their lips daily or several times a week with it. The balms are made predominantly from waxes and oils. There are also ingredients that preserve, prevent the rancidity of the recipes or have a soothing effect. Many pens also contain mineral or chemical sunscreen against the UV rays of the sun.

In addition to the traditional nursing pins, there are many brands that promise additional effects, such as pens with the coenzyme Q10 against skin aging. Other products give the lips a little shine and a hint of color, the pins with a pearl or a RosÚton.
