Top 10 Best Lip Balms in 2021 (Dermatologist-Reviewed)

A smile is the best accessory one can have. When dry, cracked, or chapped lips mar that smile, it can negatively affect one's appearance. Likewise, a pair of healthy lips can frame your face, render youthfulness and vigor to it, and enhance your looks.


Our lips tend to dry due to factors such as cold and windy weather, extreme heat, and dehydration. While trying to find the top lip balms available, we realized that the best chapsticks not only moisturize your lips and offer protection from the sun's UV rays but also keep them healthy and hydrated. We found that these qualities could be found in Burt's Bees' Lip Balm. Read on to see what else made our list.

How to Choose a Lip Balm - Buying Guide

Before you choose a lip balm, a closer examination of the state your lips are in is required. Additionally, the sensitivity of your lips, the weather you are subject to, the ingredients used, and the type of application are factors you also need to consider. 

Choose a Lip Balm Based on Your Current Climate and Conditions

An ideal lip balm should have the best hydrating and nourishing properties. Some people need extra hydration with protection based on how they maintain their lips and the climate they live in. 

Search for Effective Moisturizers for Dry Weather

Search for Effective Moisturizers for Dry Weather

Lips balms that offer intense protection and hydration to lips are required for those with lips prone to excessive drying, since they sink into your lips throughout the day. The concentration of the ingredients required to hydrate and protect the lips depends on the person. 

Ingredients like shea butter, cocoa butter, jojoba oil, and avocado oil can work for most people. They have high moisturizing properties and can soften your lips. They also do not irritate the lips and are absorbed quickly.

A beeswax-based lip balm can also be a great addition to your cosmetic bag. Being a humectant, this component prevents the loss of moisture from the lips. It is also a natural anti-bacterial and will not dry out your lips.

If your lips are dry or chapped, choose a lip balm that is greasy and ointment-based with hydrating ingredients. These will provide moisture that lasts throughout the day. You want to apply several times throughout the day if you're especially dry. This can also help protect your lips from anything they may come in contact with. 


Beeswax lip balms also help provide hydration to the skin, but propolis (the active ingredient) is a common cause of allergic dermatitis.

Petroleum Jelly Can Help Dry, Cracked, or Chapped Lips

Petroleum Jelly Can Help Dry, Cracked, or Chapped Lips

Petroleum jelly or petrolatum, an occlusive component found in lip balms, protects the lips and prevents moisture loss. A lip balm containing petrolatum is great for windy days and for treating chapped lips. A hydrating lip balm with petroleum jelly in it works well for your lips when the weather is cold and chilly.

Products with mineral oils can also prevent chapped lips from further losing moisture, but it's not an effective cure for them. You could use this in combination with other balms, or find further moisturizing ingredients with the addition of mineral oils to find a better hydrator.

Petrolatum jelly is simple and effective at helping with dry lips. I recommend using this to my patients who have allergic contact dermatitis since petrolatum is very bland and does not have many additives. It's extremely hydrating and can trap in moisture. It also serves as a barrier to protect the fragile lip skin from the environment.

Make Sure to Pick a Balm With SPF in Sunny Weather

Make Sure to Pick a Balm With SPF in Sunny Weather

The skin on your lips is as sensitive to the sun’s rays as your facial skin is. To protect your lips, use a lip balm that offers protection from the damage of the sun’s UV rays. Those with SPF 30 or higher will be best to defend your lips when you are out and about. 

Lip balms containing vitamin E can help fight free radicals that cause ageing. Furthermore, they can protect your lips from UV damage caused by the sun's rays. They also have great hydrating properties.

SPF in lip balm is a must, especially when on a sunny vacation or with lots of outdoor time. The lower lip especially is a common place for skin cancer or sun damage (actinic cheilitis) to occur.


Both of these conditions require extensive treatment. Skin cancer on the lip in particular can be life-threatening. Wearing SPF on the lip can reduce your chances of having skin cancer or severe sun damage on your lip.

Stay Away From These Ingredients, No Matter the State of Your Lips

Those with extra sensitive skin can be allergic to even the most basic ingredients, so do not give in to the tempting product descriptions. Deciphering the ingredients list might not be that easy, but it's best to avoid going with balms that have components known to be unsafe for regular use. 

Camphor, Menthol and Peppermint Can Cause Dryness in Large Amounts

Camphor, Menthol and Peppermint Can Cause Dryness in Large Amounts

Ingredients like camphor, menthol and peppermint in lip balms can cause a cooling and tingling sensation to the lips, which can feel soothing on cracked lips. However, the ingredients are actually removing the protective layer of the lips. 


This can further cause irritation and dry lips. So, if the lip balms you're looking at contain any of these ingredients, make sure it's in a small amount (towards the end of the ingredient list).

Dr. Lauren Levy

Dr. Lauren Levy

These ingredients can feel good on the lips and provide a cooling sensation, but they should not be used frequently because they can result in dry lips. They are also common causes of allergic contact dermatitis on the lips. Additionally, sometimes mint products can trigger perioral dermatitis - a small, bumpy, acne-like rash around the mouth.

You Don't Need Acne Fighters on Your Lips

You Don't Need Acne Fighters on Your Lips

If you find salicylic acid as an ingredient in a lip balm, it might not be for you. It works by sloughing off the flaky and dry skin on the lips, but it's an ingredient commonly used and usually only effective in treating acne; otherwise, it can be quite drying

Dr. Lauren Levy

Dr. Lauren Levy

Avoid lip balms with acids since these can be very irritating to the sensitive skin of the lips. The only benefit of adding an acid would be to help remove any crust or scale that develops on the lips, but this is better and more safely achieved by moistening the lips with an oil-based balm or petrolatum and gently washing the lips.

Should You Go for a Lip Balm to Wear Under Lipstick or Over It?

Should You Go for a Lip Balm to Wear Under Lipstick or Over It?

In general, lipstick acts as a pigment on the lips and the balm is the moisturizer that holds the pigment in place. But there is a rule of thumb to follow when you apply both a lip balm and lipstick.


Apply an emollient lip balm (that has hydrating properties) on your lips before lipstick application if you are applying a hydrating or moisturizing lipstick. If you are applying a long-lasting or matte lipstick, apply the balm beneath the lipstick and on top of the lipstick for extra staying power and hydration. 


There are also tinted lip balms that can eliminate the need for multiple products if you’re satisfied with only a bit of color. They moisturize and add a slight tint to your lips, so they're useful on casual days.

Some Extra Advice on Lip Care

Some Extra Advice on Lip Care

Are you drinking enough water? Chapped, dry or cracked lips can actually be caused by lack of hydration and applying lip balm and lipstick on dry and chapped lips can give an unpleasant appearance to them. It's best to go with a lips balm that offers intense hydration for those with lips prone to excessive drying so you avoid this. 


It's also a good idea to scrub away dead skin before applying lip balm to make them appear smoother. If your lips have a lot of dead skin, we recommend using a lip scrub to exfoliate them before using a lip balm. Exfoliation and removal of the dry flakes and dead skin can also help the lip balm penetrate the skin’s protective layer and rebalance it.

Summary

The skin on your lips can be a lot more sensitive than the rest of your face. Even the most well-hydrated lips still require regular maintenance by applying a lip balm every day and night. The key lies in the product that you use, especially when there's a lot to choose from. 


Remember that lip balms with ingredients not suitable for you can only make things worse. In cases where you're unsure of what is 100% best for you, consult a skin specialist or dermatologist for recommendations. When you make the right choice and treat your lips with some love and care, you'll feel and see the difference in your pout.

In the Western world, think "glow" or "dewy finish."
