Your lip balm can be used for more than just preventing your lips from becoming too dry and cracked. Thanks to its moisturizing ingredients, as well as other properties, these are some clever uses of lip balm.
1. Tame Your Flyaways
Forget using water on unruly hair or eyebrows. Instead, rub some lip balm on these stray hairs to keep them from flying away again.
Your lip balm is your lotion-on-the-go, which is great since it is much smaller than a bottle of lotion. You can use it on any part of the body with dry skin, like knuckles, elbows, and even dry cuticles. You can also apply it to the skin under the nose, especially when you have a cold. Blowing the nose with a tissue can leave this part flaky, dry, and painful. You can rub some lip balm there to soothe it.
3. Stop Zippers From Getting Stuck
If a coat or piece of clothing has a zipper that seems to always get stuck, add some lip balm on the grooves. You should be able to zip it up and down again easily. This trick also works with tangled necklaces. Just rub some lip balm on each knot to get them apart.
4. Remove Very Tight Rings
A painful and easy way to remove rings that are stuck on your finger is to rub some lip balm on the finger. It will allow the ring to slide right off.
Keeping some lip balm in your bag is a great idea, especially considering how useful it can be.
