Lip Service: 8 Ways To Pamper Your PoutFeatured

Did you know lip care is skin care?

Like the rest of your skin, your lips have a stratum corneum (the skin’s outermost layer) — but this protective layer is thinner on lips than on any other skin on your body. Combine that with a lack of oil glands (lips rely on saliva for moisture), absence of melanin (your skin’s natural pigment and protection against UV rays), and you’ve got one sensitive organ.

LipExfoliationRecipe-Ingredients-FromInstagram-20150316

WHAT YOU NEED:

1 PART RAW HONEY. If you’re allergic to propolis or beeswax (or as a matter of preference) substitute coconut jam or The Big, Brave Boo-Boo Balm.
1 PART OIL’S WELL virgin coconut oil with monolaurin.
1 DASH ORGANIC BROWN SUGAR or coconut sugar for softer exfoliation.

WHAT TO DO:

Combine Oil’s Well with raw honey (or coconut jam or Boo-Boo Balm). Add a dash of brown sugar. Mix until all parts are well blended.
Buff onto lips in gentle circular motions.
Leave on for 10 minutes. Remove with a warm damp cloth.

LIP SERVICE:

Honey (coconut jam or Boo-Boo Balm) acts as a humectant, binding water to the skin and locking in vital moisture. The sugar exfoliates and increases cell turnover, revealing new radiant skin. Oil’s Well (virgin coconut oil with coconut-derived monolaurin) is specifically designed to heal micro-fissures — especially beneficial for chapped and cracked lips due to very dry weather, sun damage or contact dermatitis.
