With the advent of summer comes a host of skin related problems. The harsh heat and the dryness of these hot months can make your lips dry. Lips don't contain oil glands like other parts of your skin, and this is why they often dry out and become chapped. Because of this dryness, you may frequently lick your lips. This strips moisture from the lips and the problem of dryness becomes worse. It is important to keep your lips hydrated during this weather to prevent this condition. According to some studies, using chemical-laden lip balms can also cause chapped lips.
To deal with this problem, we reveal a few DIY, chemical-free lip balms made with interesting summer ingredients. Here are 3 recipes for you.
Aloe vera has moisturizing properties and is one of the most beneficial summer herbs when it comes to taking care of the skin and beauty. Aloe vera gel is loaded with water content and will keep your lips hydrated.
Note: You may also add a few drops of any essential oil if it is available.
Raspberry is a lovely ingredient to have in a DIY lip balm and you won't even have to use a lipstick if you have a tinted lip balm. The omega 9 oleic acid present in the fruit protects the skin from the sun, moisturizes and repairs the skin from a cellular level.
Transfer the balm to a small container. The balm will harden in about 10 minutes. If you want harder consistency, you need to add 1 teaspoon of beeswax instead of 1/2.
Lime contains vitamin C which is good for skin. This lip balm recipe will keep your lips soft and fresh through the day.
