We all know Burt's Bees has been using honey as the key ingredient in their lip balms, but here's an at home version you can try before your big date.
To soften your lips rub a tiny drop of honey onto your lips 30 minutes before heading out. The sweetener will draw moisture from the air into your skin which will help those dry lips look plump and moisturized.
Bonus, you will also taste irresistible all night ;)
If you have a bit more time you can try making your own honey lip balm here's how.
What you will need:
1 Tbs Vaseline or petroleum jelly
1/3 Tsp honey
- Mix the Vaseline and honey in a small microwavable container together & microwave until melted. Try 30 second intervals, mixing in between. (keep your eye on it).
- Mix well
- Pour hot mixture into small container or tin and allow to cool. (insure all containers are sterile! you can do this by boiling them or spraying it down with 99% alcohol to prevent contamination of any germs)
- Enjoy ;)
Do you have any other uses for honey?
I hope this little trick and recipe come in handy for you. Ill be sporting my plump honey lips all weekend!
