It’s the harmattan season where you have dry and scaly lips so you tend to lick your lips often to keep it wet. Nothing beats having soft and smooth lips, it’s so sexy.
If you intend to maintain a soft and smooth this season, this post will expose you to tips that would help you achieve that.
Because we would always encourage natural! Here are natural ways to keep your lips soft, smooth and moisturized.
1.Cocoa and Chocolate
Can you think of a more mouthwatering lip treatment than actually using chocolate on your lips? Well, chocolate is perfect for dry, dehydrated lips. Start by melting the chocolate squares and cocoa butter in a double boiler. Add the oil from the Vitamin E capsule to this mixture.
Pour the mask into a container, allow it to cool. Once it’s cool, apply a good layer of the mask onto your lips. Leave it on for 10-15 minutes. Wash it off with lukewarm water. Whenever your lips feel dehydrated or feel like they lack any moisture in them, just dab this yummy mask onto your lips and say hello to soft, lush lips!
2.Homemade Honey Lip Scrub
Honey is a humectant, which means it locks moisture into your skin. A little honey combined with sugar (to gently exfoliate) and almond oil rubbed gently onto the lips will moisturize and slough off dead skin. All you need to have that soft and smooth lips.
3.Drink Plenty of Water
If you’re hydrated, your lips will be too. Make sure you drink at least 64 ounces of water each day. This will help your lips and body look amazing.
4.Almond Oil And Lemon
This rich body oil can be used head to toe—including on dry, chapped lips. It will also help to make them supple and pink. Lemon will also help lighten pigmented lips.
All you have to do is mix the almond oil and lemon juice together. Apply this just like you would apply a lip balm and leave it on. Do this once every day in the day or bedtime.
5.Milk and Turmeric Powder
Turmeric contains healing properties and milk is a natural moisturizing agent. These two miracle ingredients clubbed together will work wonders for pigmented lips and will help you get soft and pink lips.
Mix the cold milk with some turmeric powder to form a paste. Apply this paste on your lips and leave it on for about 5-6 minutes. Gently scrub it off once it sits. Wash with warm water and dab some lip balm on. This can be done every alternate day, and in time, you will see a huge difference.
6.Honey And Lemon Mask
Honey, as you know is a natural humectant, and it helps to intensively moisturize your lips. Lemon, on the other hand, is a natural lightening agent and using this over time will help you.
Mix the two ingredients and blend them together in a glass bowl. Apply this lip mask and leave it on your lips for 10-15 minutes. Wash it off with warm water and follow up with a layer of lip balm. You can use this on a regular basis.
