Lip balm, also known as lip salve, is basically a glossy/waxy substance that is applied to lips in order to soothe their dryness and give them a fresh look. This magical beauty product creates a protective layer on your lip surface, sealing the moisture on your lips to keep them soft and hydrated. Now a days, tinted (colored) lip balms are available in the market which not only provide your lips a hint of cool color, but also smell pleasant. However, you can make tinted lip balm at your home as all of its ingredients are inexpensive and easily available at your nearest market. Vaseline is the major ingredient of the tinted lip balm, which moisturizes your lips and gives them a glossy touch.
