With most beauty products, healthy choices become clearer after a scan of the ingredients. But tiny tubes of lip balm, and their equally tiny labels, can make this difficult. To avoid putting unwanted dyes, petroleum products, and preservatives near your mouth, mix up a batch of balm yourself. It's surprisingly easy, and the results beat many store-bought salves. Add peppermint and eucalyptus oils to heal a chapped kisser, or opt for a soothing vanilla- and rose-scented version. Either way, you'll have lip-softening relief right in your pocket.
