DIY Lip Balm Recipe

Hello lovelies! As you are all aware its another end of year holidays season, which means we are in for some harsh weather conditions that our beautiful skin don't particularly like. Harmattan (if you are in Africa) and winter (in other parts of the world) can be very drying for our skin, hair and lips.

If you are a faithful reader of my blog then you know i'm a DIYer when it comes to most of my skincare products from masks, scrubs, soaps, body butters, oils etc.

I discovered the recipe for this DIY lip balm HERE, I tried it and loved it so much i decided to share it with you lovelies. So here goes!




DIY Lip Balm Recipe

1 teaspoon avocado oil (i used coconut oil)
1 teaspoon jojoba oil
1 teaspoon grated beeswax
 1 teaspoon cocoa butter 
 1 Capsule of Vitamin E (as preservative)


1. Place all ingredients in a small jar (like an empty baby-food jar), and microwave on high for about one minute, or until the beeswax and the cocoa butter have melted completely (you can also melt everything together in a double boiler).

2. Remove the jar from microwave add your Vitamin E oil mix together and allow to cool to room temperature (do not cover the container until the mixture have cooled completely to avoid condensation).

3. Once your lip balm has cooled, it is ready to use. With the Vitanin E this should last 4 weeks

Cover and keep it in a dark, cool place. To further improve the condition of your lips, use in combination with this DIY Lip Scrub.

Until next post...remain beautiful.

I never ever thought that in a simple way you can take care your skin. You can't buy some expensive powder or and beauty potion so that it will make your skin gorgeous and good looking but it in a simple natural skin care can be.. I love it
