‘Tis the season of gifting, holiday treats, and mistletoe. Yup, that’s right, the mistletoe. And let’s be honest, it’s no secret that this cold weather can leave our lips dry, chapped and irritated…So, what are the best ways to keep our lips mistletoe ready during this holiday season (licking your lips doesn’t count!)? Read on to find out how!
Exfoliating your lips is one of the best ways to achieve baby soft lips. It give your lips that healthy glow by removing dead skin cells and discoloration.
Start by mixing…
lemon + sugar + honey
coconut oil + brown sugar
These simple mixtures not only remove any dead skin cells, but moisturize as well!
2. Deep Moisture
Now that your lips are smooth, you are ready for the special treatment. Coating your lips in butters and oils is one of the best ways to prevent and heal dry, chapped lips. This treatment works best overnight (trust me—your lips will be greasy).
You’re going to need to gather…
shea butter + coconut oil + vitamin e oil
Apply the thick mixture to your lips (as much as you can stand) and let it soak in overnight.
3. Protect & Prevent
So your lips are finally feeling cool, calm and collected, right? Well, you can’t stop there! Protect your lips from the cold, dry elements with a heavy-duty lipbalm.
Carefully heat up…
beeswax + olive oil
Pour the heated mixture into a small container. Many health stores sell beeswax as well as small containers to store your lip balm. This simple mixture will coat and protect your lips from any harm! (okay, well maybe just from the cold, dry weather!).
With these three steps your lips will stay baby soft all holiday season long!
Peace, love & coconuts!
