Here comes the cold weather! Time to keep those lips chap-free and beautiful. I've been using this two-ingredient method ever since I was in college and found an article about it in a beauty magazine.
Mix in a small bowl. Apply to your lips using your fingers, gently rubbing in a circular motion. Rinse off with water.
The brown sugar will come off, leaving some of the olive oil behind, which adds moisture and a lustrous shine to your lips. Not to mention it's pretty yummy for you or your next kiss! :)

My lips have been so dry lately and I couldn't find my usual lip stuff. Instead of going out and buying yet another one, I made some. I had all the ingredients, but that's because I make lots of homemade hand salves and foot balms, etc.
Here's a super simple all-natural recipe for a lip balm you can pour into one of your empty mint tins.
Making your own lip balm is wonderful because you know what ingredients are going in them, and you can control the scents and colours. Here, I'll show you how to make six shades by using ground turmeric and beetroot powder. This is not only for colour's sake, but for the great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Does anyone have a recipe for lip balm? I am going broke buying those little tubes of it for the grandkids who keep losing it.
You almost might want to collect containers for the gloss - like re-cycled small cups they use to give out juice samples, etc. - or other square re-cycled containers. If anyone uses dental wax for braces, etc. - those flat little containers are also great for that.
Put a little crisco solid shortening and honey together until you like the consistency. You could just use crisco alone, but it tastes better with honey and honey is good for t he skin.
Valentine's Day is coming up, and it's a great time to find little trinkets (just like Easter, Christmas, etc). I have often found, in the after-holiday sales, candy-flavored lip balms for a dime. I stock up and use them for party favors. It's worth a look!

Just have an open container of Vaseline for them to use, kept in the house. They might be asking for more because they like the flavor so they overapply and eat the stuff.
Melt a small tab of lipstick with some Vaseline in the microwave. Stir in some strawberry flavouring. Spoon it into a small jar, and let it harden slightly. This can be applied with a finger or a lipstick brush.
I used the little containers to hold small craft supplies (Like beads). I use my finger to apply it. I warmed up a gob of Vaseline and added some cocoa powder. I didn't measure it, I just stirred it in until it looked good. It leaves just a light tint on your lips. It doesn't taste like chocolate, but the smell is divine!
Can you make a lip balm without using shea butter and/or beeswax? I can't find those two in my local shop in Shanghai.
