Kate Beckinsale Shares Her Favorite (And Cheap) Moisturizing Lip Balm

Beckinsale claimed that the lip balm has always been one of her favorite beauty products, and called it her “absolute jam.”

Kate Beckinsale knows how to look good on and off the screen.

Besides her constant workouts, the actress and beauty entrepreneur is known for her gorgeous makeup looks and flawless complexion.

To take care of her lips, the 48-year-old has chosen this top-rated drugstore lip balm: The ChapStick Skin Protectant in the cherry and strawberry flavors.

In a recent interview with People, Beckinsale claimed that the lip balm has always been one of her favorite beauty product, and called it her “absolute jam.”

This cult-favorite balm is formulated to prevent and heal dry, chapped lips. Its key active ingredient is white petrolatum, a type of jelly that works to moisturize and protect the skin by forming a water-repellant film around the lips.

“Unlike the rest of the skin which has a thick stratum corneum (dead cell layer) for extra protection, the lips do not, so they are even more prone to winter dryness,” says dermatologist Heidi Waldorf, founder of Waldorf Dermatology Aesthetics and associate clinical professor at the Icahn School of Medicine of Mount Sinai University.
