I have always been very careful about choosing lipsticks because some of them make my lips dry. I have never smoked, but when I was younger, my lifestyle was not very healthy. I slept little and late, consumed too much junk food, and didn’t drink enough water. I guess I was often dehydrated, and living in a polluted city working long days — not a good combination for a healthy lifestyle with soft lips LOL
My dry and chapped lips were also a problem when I arrived in Spain. For the last years, I have tried to get rid of it with various brands of lip balms, but without success. However, some weeks after my arrival in Spain, I discovered a lip protection cream made from avocados on the Friday’s market in La Herradura. It’s produced by a nearby cooperative called Marmosa and comes in a tiny 5g container, and has become my favorite lip balm.
It has a very light, smooth, and oily texture. The color is like that of a very ripe avocado and the scent is not very strong. It’s made from refined avocado oil, virgin beeswax, and cinnamon essential oils. The product promises all-day protection and hydration for the lips, and it keeps the promise very well.
The first time I applied it, I felt a little stinging sensation that disappeared fast. In the beginning, I used it almost every hour due to an old habit. But that was not necessary for long, my lips soon became much better, just as I want them to be 🙂
It’s amazing that a problem I believed I had to live with for very long suddenly became history. A tiny container of cream with natural ingredients did what big pharma solutions failed to do for me, and I learned something very important about what it takes to be healthy.
