How to get softer and silkier lips in minutes…, Think soft and silky, with honey, all this is possible. If you are reading this page, then I guess you are looking for a remedy for dry lips that does cost big money.
You have a hectic work schedule and although you know that drinking fluids (preferably water) is the key to keeping moist lips, you just can’t seem to find the time to hydrate yourself.
To make it worst, you work in an environment where you mingle with others, and you feel self-conscious because you know that your lips are dry and flaky, and your lipstick can not hide the problem. You try petroleum and gloss, but that too is temporary. What else could you do?
In today’s post, I give you the honey, baking soda, and olive oil mixture. I know this works because I have tried it many times. Check out this article on 10 Health Benefits of Honey. So here it goes: In order to keep those beautiful lips of yours moist throughout the day, check out the following steps in the Honey Mixture:
Step 1: Use a mixture of ½ teaspoon honey, ½ teaspoon baking soda, and a ¼ teaspoon olive (coconut oil if you do not have olive oil). The honey helps to moisturize and soften, the baking soda exfoliates the dead tissue, and the oil helps to maintain the natural silkiness of the lips, by locking in moisture throughout the day.
Step 2: Mix the ingredients until smooth then apply to lips with your fingertips.
Step 3: Leave the paste on for a few minutes to help soften any dead tissue.
Step 4: Gently rub lips with your fingertips or the edge of a soft wash cloth.
Step 4: Rinse with water and pat dry
Step 5: Apply moisturizer or lipstick as desired.
Note: the lips are very delicate, while this mixture is very gentle, excessive amount of rubbing can cause bruising. To avoid irritation and blisters, do not use this method more than twice weekly. This baking soda mixture should not be used to replace adequate fluid intake. If dryness remains after using this once or twice, it is more likely that you are dehydrated and needs to drink more fluid.
*Also remember to do this last after bathing and brushing teeth since soap and toothpaste have a tendency to dry out the skin.
