We all more or less suffer from dry and chapped lips, especially during the winter months. Your lips are very sensitive to sun, dry indoor climate, wind and cold weather. Since our lips don`t produce fat, they get dry and chapped. That`s why you should apply fat during the day. Chapped lips can be a sign of fever or bronchitis, but may also be caused by lack of fluid. You should drink enough water during the day, up to two litres per day. Coffee is dehydrating, so don`t count the coffee into the two litres.
You don`t need to spend a fortune on expensive lip balms, you can easily make them yourselves!
Try this recipe:
10 g bees wax
30 ml jojoba oil
1 ts honey
Melt the wax and the oil in a bowl in hot water. Heat the honey in another bowl in hot water, make it luke warm. Mix with the wax and oil and stir carefully until cool. Fill the balm into a small container. Whenever you have an empty container, keep them for later use!
This balm is made from pure ingredients and protects the skin on your lips. It`s easy and it`s great fun too to make your own skin care products!
