You should choose a lip balm with protection against UVA rays, because the skin of the lips is very sensitive and has almost no melanin.
The dry lips are very uncomfortable and do not look good at all. They are also painful and make wearing a lipstick a nightmare. Maybe that’s why living without a balm is almost impossible. Generally you do not have only one but at least three: in the room, in the office and in the wallet.
The home made lip balm has three main benefits: it protects, nourishes and repairs. The most advisable is to use natural and neutral balms. With those who taste, people tend to constantly suck their lips and the recurrent action of saliva on them favors the dehydration of them.
Camellia flower extracts an oil that has anti-aging benefits and stimulates the production of collagen in the lips, making them look bigger and softer.
Homemade lip balm with coconut oil
We have already talked about coconut oil to explain how to make a lip balm with beeswax, but you can also make this other recipe.
- Coconut oil, preferably organic, virgin and unrefined.
- A clean and empty container, preferably opaque to protect the contents of sunlight.
- A bowl suitable for microwave and a spoon to mix.
- One or more additional oils such as argan oil, avocado and jojoba, but you can use whatever you have, including olive oil.
Take the container and pour the coconut oil along with a few drops of argan, avocado and jojoba oil. Now stir well until you see not a single lump.
Put in the fridge to cool well, before the first step you can heat the coconut oil a little, so that adding the essential oils will mix better.
When you have the cold balm, you can apply it on the lips and you will notice a hydration on your lips that you never had before.
