There’s nothing as annoying as dry and cracked lips. Wind and low temperatures can even make your lips bleed, but not if you use a proper lip balm. This blueberry & vanilla lip balm is especially designed for fall, when you need some extra moisture and hydration. Recipe is very easy, as always 🙂
5 golden rules of smooth lips
- Exfoliate: simple sugar scrub will remove dead skin cells and reveal smooth lips. Some do scrubs with toothbrushes (but without toothpaste, that would dry skin).
- Don’t wet lips: this only dries them; use lip balm instead.
- Use lip balm: use it often (a couple of times a day and always before sleep and when you go outside). Choose hydrating lip balms, especially those with honey and other moisturizing ingredients.
- Use ‘vaseline’ (petroleum jelly) (for very injured lips): this will protect small wounds and soothe the pain.
- Use coconut oil: this can be an alternative to lip balms, because it will feed your lips and make them shiny.
Why is this lip balm so good?
- Beeswax: helps retain moisture and protects skin in bad conditions (weather, dry air).
- Shea butter: it absorbs quickly and won’t feel greasy. It also has water-binding properties, which means it is very moisturizing and very useful for skin parts, where you wash it several times a day.
- Olive oil: it is very rich in vitamin, minerals and fats. It helps cells to regenerate and increases skin elasticity.
- Avocado oil: it easily penetrates into skin and absorbs quickly.
- Coconut oil: it retains moisture inside skin and is very easy to work with. Coconut oil also has anti-fungal properties and is used for candida.
