It’s safe to say that we don’t need any more signs saying it is winter already. And what is one of the most painful things that the frigid arctic winds bring along with them? No, we’re not talking about the morning bath. It’s dry skin – more specifically dry lips.
Just like the rest of your body, your lips too face the icy ire of winters. Here are 5 home remedies sitting in your kitchen that can put that pout back in your selfies in no time!
There’s a reason why Flo Rida’s lips like sugar. This quick routine using honey and sugar can rid your lip of all the dead skin. Mix a teaspoon of honey with two tablespoons of sugar and let the paste sit on your lips for a while. Rub it over a few times gently and wash off with lukewarm water.
The shrubs have been waiting for you to realize their true worth. Here’s how rose water is much more than a biryani ingredient. Mix rose water and glycerin in to a paste and apply over your lips twice or thrice in a day.
So you might not want it in your coffee, but the fat content of milk is just what your dry lips are yearning for. Apply a layer of milk fat on your lips and let it sit for 10 minutes so that the moisture seeps in nice and well. Remove with a cotton ball dipped in lukewarm water.
Your summer lotion has cucumber, remember? That’s because the fruit too is high on moisture. Rub a slice of cucumber over your lips softly to let its extracts on. Leave on for about 15-20 minutes and wash off. Do it as often as you require depending on the dryness and your patience.
Not just a savior for your hair. Coconut oil has tremendous moisturizing content that can battle off the winter’s fury. Regularly pat on a layer of coconut oil just like a balm or ointment and see magic happen.
