We tend to pay so much attention to the skin on our faces and our bodies and yet we forget that our lips need just as much love. Your lips can pretty much make or break your entire beauty look, so let's just say your lips are not something that should be ignored. And because we don't pamper our lips enough, more often than not they end up getting chapped. This can become a huge hindrance because not only are chapped lips super painful but they also end up ruining your beauty look. So, if you're looking to get rid of chapped lips effectively here are some DIY remedies that will work wonders for you. Take a look.
Coconut oil remedy - Known for its moisturising properties, coconut oil is great for your lips and it's also extremely safe to use. Take a bowl and add 1 tsp coconut oil and 1-2 drops of tea tree oil. Mix these two well and then apply the mixture to your lips before going to bed. Leave it on overnight and you'll wake up with soft and smooth lips in the morning. You can use this remedy every night.
Rosewater and honey remedy - While honey has anti-inflammatory properties, rose water can help provide soothing effects. For this concoction, you'll need 1 tsp honey and 1-2 drops of rose water. Mix these two ingredients together and then apply the mixture to your lips. Leave it on for around 10-15 minutes and then rinse it off. This remedy can be used 2-3 times a week.
Aloe vera remedy - Aloe vera is yet another ingredient with super soothing properties. It also contains strong anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that can heal damaged skin. For this remedy, you'll need some freshly scooped aloe vera gel and if not then a store-bought one. Start by washing your lips and patting them dry. Then, apply the gel to your lips and leave it on for as long as you can. Rinse it off and you'll see the difference it can make to your lips. This remedy can be used multiple times a day.
Well, now that you know which remedies will work best for you, we say you go ahead and give them a try. Your lips will thank you. Stay tuned for more updates.
