Balms to Nourish

by Amanda Wright

November is National Healthy Skin and there could be no better timing with winter approaching fast.

Richer than creams and lotions, preservative-free and multi-purpose—for dry lips, cracked hands, all-over rough skin—balms are your best beauty bet when temperatures drop this winter. Because they are oil-based and highly concentrated, a little goes a long way. Here are some of our favorite new launches.


Soapwalla’s The Balm
This balm protects perfectly against harsh, cold winter winds. Made with moringa and prickly pear seed oils, the November weather won’t stand a chance at chapping or damaging your skin.

The Good Home Co. Recovery Balm
Specially designed for those receiving radiation therapy, The Good Home has created a balm that is soothing and rejuvenating, with healing botanicals such as shea butter, coconut, olive, borage seed, and a hint of calendula. For every jar sold, $4 will be donated to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center to aid in their fight against pediatric cancer.

Maya Chia Waterless Wonder Balm

All-natural and multi-purpose, this is a must-have lip balm that you’ll want to toss in your purse or carry in your make-up bag.

Dr. Bronner’s Baby Organic Magic Balm

The newest addition to this organic line-up of skin-protecting balms, Baby Unscented provides instant relief for babies and grownups alike. Made from an organic blend of beeswax, coconut, avocado oil, jojoba oil and hemp oil and the perfect on-the-go remedy for chapped or chafed skin this winter.
