Most women, if they were honest with themselves, would have to admit that they dream of, or have dreamt of, having full lips with a soft, supple, youthful and full pout, just like the most popular movie stars and celebrities.

 

Sensual plump lips make them appear very desirable, sexy and young looking. And let’s face it women with plump lips seem to be a big hit with the guys. Men love the look of full sensual lips on a woman’s face.

 

Moreover, soft lips look more inviting to kiss and are prettier when they smile. A common problem with lips is that they crack, peel and are dry. Scrubbing is one of the most effective remedies for chapped and dry lips. It is very simple and economic method for lip treatment. Preparing your own homemade natural lip scrub helps you save money from spending on expensive cosmetics that contain harmful chemicals.

Just like the skin on our face, believe it or not our lips age too. They lose collagen and the subcutaneous fat within the lips. They are also prone to damage from free radicals. The lips begin to thin and the Cupid’s bow (the v-shape on the top lip) begins to flatten out.

 

To prevent and/or reduce aging be sure to moisturize, exfoliate and protect. You can do this by learning how to make your own homemade lip balm.

 

To make your own homemade lip balm, you need to learn the basic principles of its preparation. It goes without saying that when making any type of preparation to be used on the skin, cleanliness is of the utmost importance.

 

You certainly do not want to incorporate any bacteria or fungi into your finished product by using unhygienic equipment and containers! Make sure to sanitize all of your equipment. A great, inexpensive sanitizing solution is one teaspoon of bleach per quart of hot water.

 

Leave all of your equipment such as measuring cups, stirring spoons and containers in the bleach solution for a minimum of five minutes to kill any microbes. Let them air dry completely before using them.

 

Homemade lip balm is a very simple product to make and one that can easily be customized to your own tastes. When I says “tastes” I mean that literally too! You can make lip balms with great flavors such as honey, cranberry, chocolate, vanilla, peppermint and more.

 

You can even make lip balms that taste just like your favorite hard candy. All you need is a few basic, simple ingredients, and some very basic cooking skills. If you can melt some wax over a bowl of hot water, you have the skill to make balm.

 

When shea butter is used in homemade lip balm it aids in relieving dry lips, chapped lips and cracked lips. It softens, soothes and moisturizes to help provide for beautiful lips! You can have kissable lips with natural, homemade, lip balms!

 

If your are bothered by chapped lips, you can easily create your own homemade  lip balm by combining honey, sour cream and cucumber, and applying the mixture to the lips for at least 15 minutes. Then rinse them with some warm water, and consider applying a little almond oil to keep your lips moist.

 

You can easily change the consistency of homemade lip balm quite easily. If you like a more waxy consistency, simply add a little more beeswax to the recipe. If you like a softer consistency, increase the amount of oil in your recipe slightly.

 

It is fun to experiment to find the consistency and flavoring that you like the best. You can even add some natural colorant to your recipes in the form of beet juice and cranberries to add a beautiful flush to your lips.

Homemade lip balm also requires use of a preservative if it is to be kept for more than a day or two. Fortunately, an easy, inexpensive preservative can be found in the form of a vitamin E capsule. Vitamin E is an anti-oxidant, and works well to help increase the shelf life of homemade beauty products of all types. This works great for balms that you make for your own use.

 

You will also consider how you want to package your final product. As you already probably know, there are countless containers that lip balm is usually sold in. For starters you have standard chapstick style tubes, squeezable tubes, jars, tins and then countless variations of each of those.

 

Following is a recipe you can try to make the perfect homemade lip balm to deal with dry and cracked lips

 

The ingredients you need are 1 tablespoon of shea butter, 1 teaspoon of beeswax, half tablespoon of extra virgin coconut oil, 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil, 1 Vitamin E gel caplet and 3 drops of rose geranium essential oil.

 

Melt all the ingredients (except the Vitamin E gel and rose geranium essential oil) in a boiler. Once they have melted, you let them cool down for 5 minutes.

 

Next you pierce the Vitamin E caplet to empty its contents into the melted ingredients and finally you add in the rose geranium essential oil. Stir well and pour the mixture into a squeezable tube or small jar. Once the mixture has hardened, you can apply it on your lips.

Leave it in for 30 minutes. Rinse hair thoroughly with cool water and blow-dry on medium high. Save the remaining vinegar mixture to use every two weeks to cleanse residues and oils from your hair.

Homemade Hair Conditioner for Dry Hair

 

Olive oil has been used for centuries as a beauty product as well as for cooking and salads. Olives are rich in vitamins, and the oils that are pressed from them have many benefits.

 

When you don’t have time for a deep conditioning, put a small amount of olive oil in the palm of your hands and rub together. Run your fingers through the ends of your hair, and use it to control frizz on dry and brittle hair.

 

Or you can use it as a hot oil treatment by heating up one quarter cup of olive oil (or more, if you have long hair) and applying it to your hair. Cover your hair with saran wrap, and wrap in a warm towel if desired. Leave on for up to 30 minutes, and shampoo out.

Lemon juice is a great brightener for blonde hair.  Mix one tablespoon lemon juice in 1 cup of water. Give your hair a rinse with this lemon solution after your usual shampoo. Make sure to rub the solution along the length of your hair before washing it with cold water. Take care not to leave the solution on your hair for too long as it can affect natural hair color.

 

Recipe #2

 

Another brightener for blonde hair is to use chamomile tea bags. You steep the 2 to 3 chamomile tea bags in the boiling water for 20 minutes. Next you discard the tea bags. You dissolve half a cup of plain yogurt (preferably Greek yogurt) in the chamomile tea solution and finally you add in 5 drops of lavender essential oil. You stir the mixture thoroughly.

Babassu Oil benefits for Skin and Hair

 

Babassu Oil benefits for Skin and Hair -  If you like to use plants and herbs for healing purposes, you won't find many plants that will give you the numerous benefits that you get from the babassu palm tree. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of babassu oil, particularly for your skin and hair.
Click HERE to find out the secrets of glowing skin

 

What is Babassu oil and where does it come from? Babassu oil or cusi oil is a clear light yellow vegetable oil extracted from the seeds of the babassu palm (Attalea speciosa) tree nuts, which grows in the Amazon region of South America.

 

When these nuts ripen, they fall to the ground. Kernels inside the nuts are gathered during the harvesting season from August until November and broken open using axes by women called Babassu breakers.

 

In Brazil women use Babassu oil which is similar to coconut oil.  They use it at room temperature and the oil has a semi-solid form which melts when applied to the body, although it has a cool feeling.

 

Babassu oil contains plant sterols and phytostrols that magically restores skin cells. It moisturizes without making the skin look greasy and works for all skin types.

 

Many Brazilian women also lie on the warm sand and rub it on their skin gently while sunbathing or after swimming to create that exotic brown skin color.  This type of treatment is also available in some spas.

 

This non-drying oil is widely used in drugs, food, beverages, cleansers and skin care products, including makeup and cosmetics. It is also often a main ingredient in body butters, massage butters, hair products, creams, lotions and lip balms.

 

Babassu oil is similar to coconut oil and is solid at room temperature with a consistency similar to that of vegetable butter. In fact, it is sometimes called Babassu Butter. It is increasingly being used as a substitute for coconut oil.

 

This oil is high in lauric and myristic acids, and contains about 70% lipids. Lauric and myristic acids have melting points relatively close to human body temperature, so babassu oil can be applied to the skin as a solid that melts on contact and gives a cooling sensation.

 

Babassu oil forms a pleasant, soothing and protective layer when applied topically to the skin and is considered an exceptional emollient that is beneficial to both dry and oily complexions. It absorbs readily into the skin to replenish moisture without leaving behind a greasy film.

 

Babassu oil is one of my particular favorites for soothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also contains Vitamin E, a natural anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant. It soothes and softens your skin while also creating an unseen barrier which retains your skin’s moisture and prevents the absorption of grime and dirt. It also helps to prevent stretch marks and is beneficial for those coping with any number of skin ailments, including eczema and psoriasis.

 

Babassu oil can be used in many homemade soap recipes. When making homemade soap, this natural oil has similar properties to coconut oil and provides some relief for people with eczema. It offers a hard bar of soap with nice fluffy and stable lather. It has a shelf life of approximately one to two years.

 

Babassu oil works wonder for the hair too. It gives curly hair magnificent strength and elasticity from the roots up to the tips and prevents dryness of hair. It also acts like an exfoliator by removing hair product residues from each hair strand leaving hair shiny and full of life.

 

Babassu oil can be applied as a pre-treatment before washing hair as usual or after washing hair and left in as an overnight treatment. A smaller amount of oil (to prevent hair from appearing oily) can also be used as a leave-in conditioner.

 

You can use babassu oil separately, combined or mixed with carrier oil, such as coconut, avocado or jojoba for hair care. This can be done by adding 1 to 2 ml of babassu oil to 2 to 4 oz. of carrier oil.
