LETIBALM ‘NOSE’ BEST
South Africa’s only repair balm for lips AND noses
If you are looking for a way to protect your lips and nose from colds, the flu and allergies, then Letibalm – South Africa’s only repair balm for lips and noses – has the dermatologist-approved answer.
Firstly, why does your nose get red?
There are a few reasons, but the most common is frequently wiping a runny nose, because of allergies, colds and the flu. “The skin of the upper lip and around the nostrils is more sensitive and easily irritated than other areas of the face,” says Cape Town-based dermatologist Dr Lauren Knight, aka Derm Discovered.
She recommends using hydrating moisturisers or a barrier cream like Letibalm, to restore the skin barrier and prevent further irritation.
“Letibalm gently moisturises the skin with cocoa butter, lanolin and Centella Asiatica. It helps calm inflammation through the action of soothing lemon balm, antioxidant vitamin E and African mango. The occlusive formulation helps repair painful cracks, helping create a protective layer on the skin to prevent further chapping and restore the skin barrier.” Letibalm is available in a jar, fluid and a paediatric variety, suitable from birth:
In addition, Dr Knight has three ‘dermatologist-approved’ tips to put your best nose forward:
- If you have a runny nose use soft, unscented tissues and only wipe or blow when needed, remembering to wash your hands before and after.
- Protect and help repair the skin barrier with hydrating moisturisers or a barrier cream like Letibalm Nose & Lip Repair which helps soothe inflammation and forms a protective layer to prevent further chapping.
- Prevent further irritation of the area by going makeup-free and not applying active skin ingredients. Avoid touching the face.
