Tired of having chapped lips no matter the time of year? We have a solution. Drop those long-lasting lipsticks that further dry out your lips and focus on hydration instead. But rather than go through sticks and sticks of lip balms that prove ineffective at moisturizing your dry lips, why not try a homemade product made with natural ingredients?
Here's what you'll need:
- 2 teaspoons of coconut oil
- 1/2 a lemon's juice
- 1/2 beet
- 1 blender
How to make it:
- Cut the half beet in pieces
- Put the small cubes in the blender
- Squeeze the lemon
- Add the juice of half a lemon to the blender
- Add the coconut oil
- Mix everything
- Put the mixture in a resealable jar
- Store it in the fridge so the balm can harden
What to expect? Your lips will be hydrated thanks to the nourishing properties of coconut oil and subtly coloured by the beetroot. You can also pat this balm on your cheeks to use it as a blush.
How much? About £1 as opposed to paying £5 on average in pharmacies and supermarkets. For 4 times cheaper, you'll have a healthy product that contains no chemicals and is better for you.
Worried you might not have time to make this? No worries. You can make this product in less than 10 minutes. There go your excuses!
