Teens using lip balm on eyelids to enhance being drunk, high

A new trend among teens may be concerning to parents.

Most people think of Burt’s Bees lip balm as just that -- lip balm, but experts say teens have found a new use for it.

A new viral trend called "beezin" is apparently making the rounds. "Beezin" is when a person applies a light layer of Burt’s Bees natural lip balm wax on their eyelids.

Some who do "beezin" said it adds to the experience of being drunk or high, others said it helps to keep them alert.

While "beezin" may feel good, physicians warn that using the lip balm on one’s eyelids could cause potential health effects including inflammation in the eye and swelling.
