CBD is everywhere these days — it's touted as everything from a topical pain reliever to a sleep aid... and now, it's the beauty ingredient du jour. Its newfound popularity makes sense: Because in addition to being "buzzy," CBD oil is non-comedogenic, rich in antioxidants, and it works as a natural inflammatory. Oh, and don't worry: It doesn't include THC (the psychoactive component of marijuana), so you don't have to worry about getting high.

With all that in mind, it's actually becoming a popular ingredient for lip balms. Are CBD lip balms something you'd be interested in trying? Keep reading to see some of the benefits... and shop some of our favorite picks.

It's good for your skin
We know we're not the only ones who have thrown out lip balms after the flu or a cold sore. CBD has natural antibacterial properties, which makes it a no-brainer for lip balms, since it'll stay germ-free. It also boasts anti-inflammatory properties, which is boon for any lip irritations (including those aforementioned cold sores). Yep, CBD is good for your skin — lips included.

Studies have shown that CBD can reduce anxiety — so could a quick swipe on the lips when you're feeling panicky might actually be helpful. It probably won't make as much of a difference as a couple drops under the tongue (or a fancy CBD-infused gummy or two, but it definitely can't hurt.
