Do you need lip balm?

Do you need lip balm? Can you get addicted to lip balm?

The answers are yes and yes!!

So, what should you use to prevent and treat chapped lips?

You need to keep your lips moist by applying a really good moisturizer if you don’t want dry looking lips that are prone to chapping. This chapping occurs because, structurally, your lips don’t have the same tough dead skin cell layer that other parts of your skin have, nor do they have oil glands to keep them hydrated. Dry climates and wind will quickly sap moisture right out of your lips resulting in unpleasant chapped lips. By applying a lip moisturizer, you can help protect your lips from chapping.

But, you can become “addicted” to lip balm if you use the wrong product.  The wrong lip balm is one that contains an allergen. Exposure to the allergen causes a lip rash that mimics chapping. The rash is really an allergic lip “rash,” but it looks and feels exactly the same as chapped lips. It forces you to keep reaching for your trusted lip product to find relief, which is a “beautiful world” for the lip balm maker who sells you endless tubes of product to treat your “chapped” lips.

That’s why we recommend only hypoallergenic lip moisturizers such as shea butter or even Vaseline, though the latter is not our favorite.

We especially recommend you avoid products with notorious lip allergens including:

  • Citrus
  • Mint
  • Tea tree
  • Eucalyptus
  • Camphor
  • Lanolin
  • Artificial flavors and fragrances
  • Some of the chemical sunscreens ingredients and vitamin E can be allergens to sensitive skin

To prevent annoying and painful chapped lips is why we are so particular about lip balms.

Types of skin cancer

Skin cancer is an abnormal growth of skin cells. It most often develops on areas of the skin exposed to the sun’s rays. Skin cancer affects people of all colors and races, although those with light skin who sunburn easily have a higher risk.

What does skin cancer look like?

  • Actinic Keratoses (AK)
    These dry, scaly patches or spots are precancerous growths.

    • People who get AKs usually have fair skin.
    • Most people see their first AKs after 40 years of age because AKs tend to develop after years of sun exposure.
    • AKs usually form on the skin that gets lots of sun exposure, such as the head, neck, hands, and forearms.
    • Because an AK can progress to a type of skin cancer called squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), treatment is important.


  • Basal cell carcinoma (BCC)
    This is the most common type of skin cancer.

    • BCCs frequently develop in people who have fair skin, yet they can occur in people with darker skin.
    • BCCs look like a flesh-colored, pearl-like bump or a pinkish patch of skin.
    • BCCs develop after years of frequent sun exposure or indoor tanning.
    • BCC are common on the head, neck, and arms, yet can form anywhere on the body, including the chest, abdomen, and legs.
    • Early diagnosis and treatment for BCC is important. BCC can invade the surrounding tissue and grow into the nerves and bones, causing damage and disfigurement.


  • Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC)
    SCC is the second most common type of skin cancer.

    • People who have light skin are most likely to develop SCC, yet they can develop in darker-skinned people.
    • SCC often looks like a red firm bump, scaly patch, or a sore that heals and then re-opens.
    • SCC tend to form on skin that gets frequent sun exposure, such as the rim of the ear, face, neck, arms, chest, and back. SCC can grow deep in the skin and cause damage and disfigurement. Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent this and stop SCC from spreading to other areas of the body.


  • Melanoma
    Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer.

    • Melanoma frequently develops in a mole or suddenly appears as a new dark spot on the skin.
    • Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial.
    • Knowing the ABCDE warning signs of melanoma can help you find an early melanoma.


Jane’s favorite things

Jane’s favorite things

We all have a product (or 10) that are our favorites each season, and Jane Iredale  is no exception! Here are a few of her favorites for this time of year to keep her skin looking hydrated and beautiful and her face party ready.
1 & 2. Jane never leaves her home in the Spring without Dream Tint and PurePressed Base on her face. Dream Tint is a leightweight tinted moisturizer with SPF 15 that keeps your skin feeling hydrated.

PurePressed Base provides a foundation, concealer, sunscreen and active skin care benefits all in one with SPF 20.

3. Jane always wears PureLash Extender and Conditioner no matter what the occassion is. A single coat of Lash Conditioner before applying mascara will help strengthen, lengthen and thicken your lashes, making the mascara twice as effective.

4. While she usually wears Espresso Longest Lash Mascara, for a really glam party she will switch to Black Ice. Longest Lash Mascara is designed to make lashes look thicker and longer naturally. Packaged in a squeezable tube with a NEW oversized brush that works with this formula to separate and define lashes, prevent clumping, create natural looking lashes

5. Jane Loves Moonglow for her cheeks, décolleté and even her legs. Moonglow is a golden bronzer, that can be used to subtly create the “Golden Goddess” look.

6. Of course she loves Champagne 24-Karat Gold Dust. Apply it to the cheeks, eyes and lips for a delicately gilded look. Mix it with a moisturizer for the décolletage; or into your favorite hair product for luminous locks!
