Winter is coming and, at that time, our skin usually grows more dry, especially the lips. To avoid dryness and even sores, we end up resorting to moisturizers and lip balms. But would not it be great if we could make our own lip balm ourselves? For today we will learn how to make a lip balm at home naturally.
There are several home recipes for lip balm. Today we are going to teach 5 of them that we chose especially for you. They are recipes that do not carry petroleum jelly (as it is a derivative of petroleum) and contain only natural ingredients.
1. Moisturizing lipstick balm with honey and sugar
The Honey is a great natural moisturizer and is present in various types of cosmetics, including facial moisturizers. Honey also contains antioxidants that fight free radicals and prevents premature aging of the skin. Sugar already has the exfoliating power and also acts as anti-aging.
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon brown sugar, beaten in the blender to get thinner, or brown sugar
How To Prepare
Mix the ingredients well to make the cream.
How To Use
Use the mixture on dry and clean lips, passing it in your mouth using your fingers.
Let it act for a few minutes and remove the excess with cold water.
Use this natural moisturizer from time to time when you need a light exfoliation with deep hydration (do not use it every day)
2. Lip moisturizer with beeswax and lemon wax

Method of Preparation
Pour the mixture into a bowl of water. The mixture should slowly melt over low heat. You can use a larger pan and a smaller pan to make the water bath.
Melt the ingredients over medium-high heat. Connect the flame from the bowl or water to the water bath to heat the water and melt the ingredients. It will mix so that everything is evenly incorporated.
