    Keeps lips moisturized

    The skin of your lips is thinner and more sensitive than your facial skin and so it calls for extra care. If you won’t keep them moisturised enough all day, they won’t look good and you won’t feel great. While your lip balm may hydrate the lips for a few hours, glycerine will keep them supple all day long. You don’t need to re-apply glycerine all the time.

    Prevents flaking and bleeding

    Dry lips flake easily and picking on them can cause bleeding. It not only looks unsightly but also causes pain. Heal your lips using glycerine so that you don’t have to be embarrassed.

    Prevents irritation

    Extremely dry lips are itchy and irritating. Scratching can tear the protective layer of skin and cause bleeding. Instead of using your teeth to pick on the dry flakes on lips, use your hands to apply glycerine there.
