BEAUTY: DIY Lip balm and banish the chap!

So, if you are in the Southern hemisphere, you may have noticed that summer is starting to move on in! This means many things (ahem, bikini season, rose, sun, sea – oh the list goes on!) it also means we risk constantly forgetting lip balm whilst simultaneously realising just how dry and chapped your lips are getting!

I am a massive fan of doing it yourself – beauty saviours can be found in the most surprising places, the fridge, pantry and fruit bowl are often the most perfect of hiding places. This means do-it-yourself concoctions that you can make at home that are free of nasty chemicals and things that you really shouldn’t be using on your skin.

Here is a super hydrating mask for your lips that is quick and easy to make – you may have the ingredients already!

Ingredients:

1 Tsp of coconut oil – to restore the lipid layer to the skin and is also anti-inflammatory

1 Tbsp of honey (I use Manuka) – moisturising and antibacterial

Directions:

Mix both the coconut and honey together well in a bowl. Apply to your lips and gently massage on and around your kisser. Leave on for 5 minutes and then gently remove with a warm, clean cloth – voila! The most kissable pout around!
