Lips easily get effected in harsh environment and chapped lips are a turn off. The new Blueberry Lip balm packs in together the essential butters- Kokum Butter and Shea Butter for protection and round the clock moisture, Wheatgerm oil to fight discoloration and pigmentation and has a delicious blueberry flavor thanks to the natural blueberries which contain high level of anti oxidants.
What is the importance of Blueberry Extracts ?
Blueberries are high antioxidant and phytochemical carriers. These anti oxidants seep in the skin tissue and provide a shield against free radicals by neutralizing them. These free radicals cause a lot of damage to the tissues if not targeted. Blueberries fight early signs of aging and keep lips young, pink and supple. The vitamin C in blueberries helps in strengthening the blood vessels. Weak blood vessels are prone to damage and breakage. These make the lips sensitive and a perfect target for numerous allergies and discoloration. Vitamin C works at the capillary level and provides strength to the vessels beneath the skin surface.
