6 Tips to Get Your Lips Back After Winter

Today on OiB, I will discuss how to get your lips back from winter. Summer is already here which is why you can get back your lips fairly easily. Your lips do not get the ample amount of sun light needed during winter when the sun is not shining at its best and there is no source of Vitamin in this way. I tell you these natural ways so you don’t have to waste money or risk any
effects.

 Castor Oil

Dry lips can be greatly revived using castor oil by putting it on your lips several times a day or by using it to make a mixture of one teaspoon oil with a teaspoon of glycerin and lemon juice (few drops). The well mixed mixture is applied overnight to be washed with warm water right in the morning. You shall see that your lips shall be healed within no time after a few repetitions.

 Honey

In addition to providing great moist lips, honey is the only cure that also heals the lips by providing it anti-bacterial properties. Pure organic honey is applied on lips for many times a day. A honey and glycerin paste also works well and very if it is applied overnight.
The treatment not only brings back your lips that have been lost during the winter and have prone to become dry and dull, but also softens the lips at the very same time. Hence this is the most efficient and probably the best treatment of all times.

 Sugar

Softness can also be achieved faster along by removing the dead cells that have formed your lip’s upper layer by using sugar. Only 2 teaspoons sugar mixed with a teaspoon of honey can make wonders in very few minutes.
The paste applied to the lips is rubbed well around the lips to take off the dead cells and wash them with warm water.

 Rose Petals
If you want perfectly good lips that are also red and rosy then just mix a few rose petals in water to soak them thoroughly in milk for a few hours and make them into a thick paste by mashing out the petals.

Application of this paste twice or thrice during the day and even at night greatly helps to achieve your goal. For those who are allergic to milk, they can use glycerin instead of milk fairly well.

 Cream
You can put on fresh milk cream on your lips for 10 minutes and wash it with a warm water dipped cotton ball. It is the milk cream’s high fat content that brings about the pure moisturization.

 Coconut Oil

If you’re tired of those chapped lips after winter, just dab on some coconut oil many times during the day on your lips to keep them moist throughout or even use olive oil for the same.

Why those 2 ingredients?

Lemon?

Lemon is a strong antibacterial to nourish and clean your skin at the same time. Oh Yes. It is also ideal for boosting your immune system as you can drink with water in the morning . I usually do it after applying my usual skincare lotion. At the moment, it is Eucalyptus based!

And what about Yogurt?

Yogurt contains lactic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid, that dissolves dead skin cells. This gentle exfoliation not only helps to create a natural glow and prevent breakouts, but works to diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Healthy Infused Water

All functions of the body require water. It’s the body’s natural purifier, replenisher and hydrator and we need lots of it to keep our bodies functioning properly. The only problem about water is it can get a little boring. And when things get boring, watch out! That’s when we start reaching for sugary drinks. I’m avoiding all that by adding Fruit-Infused Water to my daily routine. And I have to tell you, I am absolutely loving it!

I thought I would share some of the ones I have been drinking.

  • Cucumber, Mint and Lime. Slices of cucumber, slices of half a lime and sprigs of mint mixed together with water. I found this one to have the most flavour compared to others.
  • Cucumber, Lime, Strawberry and Mint. Slices of cucumber, chopped up strawberry, slices of lime and sprigs of mint.So I added strawberry, but it’s worked!
  • Lime, Ginger and Mint. Slices of lime, sprigs of mint and slices of ginger cut up. I added more ginger into this one as I found it less gingery.

  • Lime, Kiwi, Mint and Coconut Water. Slices of lime, kiwi chopped up, sprigs of mint and coconut water. I’m not a big fan of coconut water, but putting a little at the bottom topped up with water is delicious.

The “recipe” is pretty simple. Just place slices/sprigs of your favorite flavors into a pitcher or glass. Fill with water. The longer it sits, the more intense the flavor. Then, just keep refilling with water. Drink the infused water within 2 days to keep the flavors fresh. (And I try to use organic produce whenever possible)

Once you find your favorite flavors, it’s easy to get hooked! If you come to a party at my house, there is a good chance you’ll see a big pitcher of infused water on the drink table. It’s not just tasty, it’s also very pretty to look at.

I love to make a big batch and sip on it all day. Or if I’m out and about I pour some in my reusable water bottle that I always keep with me. It’s a fun way to drink water at work or on the go. So, what are you waiting for? Go get your drink on! You know what I mean…

Here’s to the beginning of summer! Cheers 🙂

Amanda.
