Natural Tips for Beautiful & Soft Lips in Winter

Hydration

First of all make sure that you drink plenty of pure and filtered water; at least eight to ten glasses a day so your body is well hydrated as well as eat more & more fruits because they are high in moisture content. The other way to keep your lips hydrated is; take 1 tablespoon of honey, 1 tablespoon of baking soda, and 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil. Mix baking soda and honey, and apply it on the lips for a few minutes and gently rub your lips to remove the dead skin. Lastly, apply the olive oil on the lips for moisturizing.


Exfoliation

As we all know, lips are more sensitive. If you use some of the exfoliating cream of the face for the lips, then it will be harmful to your lips rather than improving it. So best option to remove dead skin is that; take a wet & soft toothbrush and gently brush your lips with a circular motion.

Secondly, mix sugar and olive oil collectively in equal mixture and with a toothbrush exfoliate your lips with the mixture. After this, apply Chap Stick which has cocoa butter for better results. Do this about once or twice in a week. You can also use sugar, honey and vaseline to remove the dead skin.

Homemade Lip balm

You can use natural ingredients to nourish lips rather than purchasing lip balm from the market. You can use honey to massage your lips every night before going to bed as well as you can use it combined with olive oil and propolis for better effect.

Moisturize and nourish

Moisturize your skin and lips in this winter. Add a few drops of oil to the water to hold the lost moisture from bathing. Keep away from bathing with hot water during winter as it can reduce the skin’s natural oils. Secondly, you can apply thick layer of honey or castor oil on your lips, it will give the natural moisture to your skin. The most important thing is that avoid products which has fragrances, flavors, salicylic acid, and camphor, menthol as well as phenol. You can prepare your own solution at home to moisturize your lips; mix 2-teaspoon coconut oil, 3 drops of lemon oil, lemon juice, and 1-teaspoon bee wax then warm it on low flame and after melting, pour into a glass jar.
