Favorite Thing Friday: Homemade Moisturizing Lip Gloss

I have extremely dry lips right now. Abnormally dry. They have been cracking and peeling and feel like they are on fire. Not cool, right? Not very kissable, either! Or attractive for that matter, but as usual, my fiancĂ© has been extremely supportive and understanding :) That being said, I know what you're thinking:

"Have you tried Vaseline?"

"Burts Bees?"

"Blistex?"

Yes, yes and yes. And I can probably answer yes to any other suggestions that come my way, too.

Finally, after a trip to the health food store, I was inspired. I knew what I needed to do and let me tell you that the instant gratification and long term, lasting effects of this all-natural, easy, DIY, homemade lip gloss/therapy has been a game changer for my chapped lips. And to top it off, it smells and tastes delicious. This is all you need:

  • A tablespoon of coconut oil
  • A tablespoon of olive oil
  • 3/4 of a tablespoon of honey
Mix the ingredients all together in a little container and let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours. After it sits for a bit, take it out, stir it up again, and voila! You have a natural, delicious, healing, moisturizing lip gloss.

*Worth mentioning: it will soften and melt easily, especially if it sits around in your pocket all day. When this happens, just stick it back in the fridge for a bit.

The only three ingredients you need!
Try it out and let me know what you think :)
