We don’t need any more signs from Mother Nature to tell us that winter is round the corner. And what is one of the most painful things that the frigid arctic winds bring along with them? No, we’re not talking about the morning bath. It’s dry and chapped lips.
Just like the rest of your body, your lips too face the chilly wrath of winters. Here are 5 home remedies to replenish your natural pout without spending all your life’s savings in lip balms.
There’s a reason why Flo Rida’s lips like sugar. This quick routine using honey and sugar can rid your lip of all the dead skin. Mix a teaspoon of honey with two tablespoons of sugar and let the paste sit on your lips for a while. Rub it over a few times gently and wash off with lukewarm water.
Not just a savior for your hair. Coconut oil has tremendous moisturizing content that can battle off the winter’s fury. Regularly pat on a layer of coconut oil just like a balm or ointment and see magic happen.
So you might not want it in your coffee, but the fat content of milk is just what your dry lips are yearning for. Apply a layer of milk fat on your lips and let it sit for 10 minutes so that the moisture seeps in nice and well. Remove with a cotton ball dipped in lukewarm water.
Your summer lotion has cucumber, remember? That’s because the fruit too is high on moisture. Rub a slice of cucumber over your lips softly to let its extracts on. Leave on for about 15-20 minutes and wash off. Do it as often as you require depending on the dryness and your patience.
The shrubs have been waiting for you to realize their true worth. Here’s why. Rinse a handful of rose petals and soak them in water for a few hours – the ardent vegan can opt for glycerin instead. Blend the solution into a paste and apply over your lips twice or thrice in a day.
