Today, we will be taking a look at some of the best lip masks for soft lips that you can make at your home and get rid of pesky dryness. So let’s get started, shall we?
Why Do You Need A Lip Mask?
Lip care is an essential part of our daily skincare routine as lips show signs of dehydration and dryness earlier than any other part of your face. As the skin around your lips is more sensitive than other areas, it can easily become dry and irritated. Moreover, constant exposure to sun, pollution and dust can also affect the health of your lips. To ensure your lips looks as healthy as other parts of your face it is vital to use a lip mask for soft lips.
If you are a natural fanatic like us and only want to use natural products and ingredients, we have just the thing for you!
2 DIY Lip Mask Recipes To Soften And Moisturise Your Lips
There are several lip masks that you can try with their own unique purpose and benefits. Let’s take a look at some of them which are sure to moisturise your lips.
Shea Butter Lip Mask
Shea butter and beeswax are two of the best moisturising ingredients for a DIY lip mask. These will leave your lips instantly moisturised and hydrated and also reduce the chance of infections.
- 1 teaspoon shea butter
- 1 teaspoon beeswax
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- In a small saucepan, melt the shea butter and beeswax over low heat.
- Once the shea butter and beeswax are fully melted, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the coconut oil until it is fully incorporated.
- Allow the mixture to cool slightly, then apply it to your lips.
- Leave the lip mask on for 5-10 minutes, then rinse it off with warm water and pat your lips dry with a towel.
This DIY lip mask can be used once or twice a week to help moisturise and nourish your lips. The shea butter and beeswax help to create a protective barrier on the lips, while the coconut oil helps to moisturise and soften the skin. You can also try adding other ingredients, such as essential oils or vitamin E oil, to the mixture to enhance its nourishing properties.
Honey and Coconut Oil Lip Mask
Here is a simple recipe for a DIY lip mask that you can use to moisturise your lips:
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon almond oil
- In a small bowl, mix together the honey, coconut oil, and almond oil until well combined.
- Apply the mixture to your lips and leave it on for at least 15 minutes.
- Rinse off the lip mask with lukewarm water and use a soft cloth to pat your lips dry.
You can use this lip mask once or twice a week to help moisturise and nourish your lips. If you don't have one of the ingredients, you can try substituting it with something similar. For example, you can use olive oil or avocado oil instead of almond oil. Just be sure to avoid using any ingredients that may be irritating to your skin.
