Consider this when going on a trip:
- Does my lip balm contain sunscreen?
- Is it light enough to use on my face if the flight is long enough and the cabin air is drying out my skin?
- Is it tinted?
- Have I checked the TSA website to make sure my lip balm is either a part of my 3-1-1 ziplock or can I just carry it normally?
An area often forgotten are the cuticles. They get dry and beat up from carrying your luggage and from the lack of moisture in the cabin air also. I've used lip balm on my cuticles and felt the "ahhh" moment of my fingers being happy again.
You can choose for yourself but if I had to recommend something my top two suggestions would be either Kiehl's #1 Lip Balm (in stores or online) or regular Vaseline Petroleum Jelly (classic).
