Applying lip-ice whilst fasting


Please can you advise me as to whether you can apply lip balm to dry cracked lips in ramadaan?


The fast will not become invalid by using lip balm or Lip-ice. However, it is best that one abstains from using Lip-ice or lip balm whilst fasting if there is no real need.

And Allah Knows Best
