The most sensitive skin in our entire body is around our lips and when we fail to take care of it properly. The result of not pampering your lips is that they become dark pigmented and start to lose their moisture. And the effect of seasons change is even worse as they make the skin of the lips chapped, dehydrated, and flaky. Flaky and dry lips may then lead to the habit of lip biting which may further make the lips wounded and cause bleeding.
In order to avoid these consequences, all you have to do is take out 1 hour in a week and work your way to smoother healthier, and more beautiful-looking pink lips. Here’s our simple guide to doing a lip spa at home. You are required to do this process twice a week for half an hour. So, let’s see how it's done.
What You Will Need
- Petroleum Jelly
- Almond Oil
- Vitamin E Capsules
- Essential Oil
- Mixing Bowl
- Wet Tissues
- Hand Towels
- Powdered Sugar
- Some Other Containers
- A Lip Tint
How To Do Lip Spa
Start by washing your lips with lukewarm water then take some moisturiser or raw milk and start rubbing it gently over your lips with a soft toothbrush for 2 minutes. This will aptly spread the moisture in the lips and also cover the outline including the chin and upper lips area.
As a part of step two, you will have to scrub your lips. So, take some honey, vitamin E, and almond oil and add some powdered sugar to it. Mix the ingredients well and store in a freezer before starting your spa after 30 minutes of cooling, take out the scrub and start massaging your lips in a circular motion. This will make sure that the flaky and dead skin on the top most layer gets removed easily. Do this for about 10 minutes and take more scrub when needed.
Now store a few wet tissues inside the ice box of your fridge this will help in cooling the wet wipes to relieve the skin of lips from within.
When done with scrubbing wipe the excess scrub with a wet towel and apply your favourite essential oil to the lips. Just take 5-7 drops on your palm and spread over the lips and using gentle pressure from your fingers massage it in all directions.
Then take out the frozen wet wipes and then pour some essential oil along with Vitamin E over the frozen tissues. Place these tissues on your lips and let them stay for about 8 minutes before removing them. This will restore the lost shine of your lips by cooling the several layers of the skin of your lips(consume these foods to get pink and healthy lips).
Now gently massage your lips for about 5 minutes as this process will help in locking the moisture deep into the skin and will prevent dryness and chapping of your lips.
Last but not least you should ideally not wipe away the oils on your lips but just in case you feel that there is an excess of the oil then gently remove it by tapping a dry tissue or towel on your lips. And apply your favourite lip tint/balm(5 best lip balms in India) to flaunt your beautiful pink baby lips.
