Have you ever wanted to apply your beloved lipstick but for some reason now, it won’t glide on as easily, producing a dry and flaky lip? Well it’s probably because your lips need a little extra TLC, especially during the winter months. Here is a home DIY lip mask I use especially leading up to the day I know I’m going to wear a bold lip for an upcoming event or look.
Here are the ingredients:
¼ teaspoon raw honey
½ teaspoon virgin coconut oil
½ teaspoon brown sugar
3 drops rose oil (optional)
I place these ingredients in a bowl and mix together until incorporated. This portion is good for 10 uses! A little goes a long way! Bottle up your remaining mixture into a sealed tight container and store in a cool dry place.
Upon rubbing the mask into your lip, you’ll start to feel the mixture melt and saturate into your lips, so don’t apply too much at one time. I leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes then wipe off with a damp cloth. Your lips will feel soft, exfoliated and rejuvenated. I like to finish off with applying my favorite lip balm. If handling a DIY is not your cup of tea, the sugar lip mask from Fresh is my favorite lip mask. It’s a thicker texture than the one I make, and the smell of it is just so delicious!
Don't let the winter days keep you from wearing your favorite lip color. Give you lips the pampering it needs. Both masks have the same results for me, producing soft ready to wear lips for those long lipstick days ahead.
