If you handle paper or if you shave, you’ve likely received one or two nicks or cuts in your lifetime. Here’s a helpful tip the next time it happens. Use lip balm. It contains healing properties to soothe small cuts and relieve pain. In addition, the balm’s beeswax seals the wound, which protects against germs and infections. So, if you get nicked, wash the area, and spread lip balm over it for instant relief.
