Winter is coming which means it is time to go for lip balm shopping. If you are one of those who waits for your lips to chap, dry and screams for nourishment before investing in a lip balm, we’re about to change that forever. Because believe it or not lip balms are life savers and they do so much more than just moisturising your lips.

Below are 5 lip balm hacks that will make you stock up on some lip balms right away.

That annoying hair strand is ruining your perfect hairdo once again? Rub a little lip balm between your fingers and gently swipe the strand back towards your hair. It will also make your hair look smooth and shiny.

Remove makeup

Crashed at a friend’s place? Don’t go to bed with your makeup on. Grab that lip balm from your purse spread it over a cotton ball or tissue and get rid of all the makeup and dirt in a jiffy.

Use as a highlighter

Get a nice dewy finish by dabbing some lip balm on your cheekbones. Try Lakmé Lip Love in Pure Lipcare, this non-tinted lip balm will add subtle shine and instant glow to your face in just a few seconds.

Make your eyeshadow last longer

Still don’t have the eye primer everyone’s been talking about? No problem, use your favourite lip balm as a base. Its smooth consistency allows eyeshadow to blend seamlessly and makes it stay longer. For this hack we personally love Lakmé Lip Love in Insta Pink, because it gives a subtle tint and you can completely skip applying eye shadow! Just dab some at the centre and blend outwards.

Prevent blisters on feet

Painful blisters can make you hate a new pair of heels. Not anymore, take some lip balm on your fingers and rub onto the heels and sides of your feet before slipping your shoes on. The slick texture acts as a barrier and prevents rubbing and chaffing. Now that’s what we call a quick fix.
