Chapped lips are the worst. Next to beautiful teeth, lips are the biggest contributor to a gorgeous smile and a high ‘kissability’ factor. Strutting around with plump, hydrated lips will boost your confidence 3-fold because you know you’re looking as hot as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and the number of people wanting to kiss you has just increased by 20%, at least!
Thankfully, it’s easier and cheaper to fix chapped lips, naturally. So here we show you, in 3 simple steps, how to hydrate and plump chapped lips without toxic chemicals.Hot Tip: Make sure the ingredients you use are organic so it’s not an issue if you get some in your mouth.
Step 1: Apply a lip mask
Apply a honey lip mask. Simply layer organic honey over your lips, let it soak in for around 15 minutes, then remove with warm water. This will draw moisture to your lips and soften dead skin cells so that they lift easily when you move on to step 2.
Step 2: Exfoliate
After you wash off the honey, exfoliate your lips. Mix brown sugar and Coconut or Olive oil into a pasty consistency. Then, gently rub the mixture in small circular motions to exfoliate the skin. Keep going until the sugar has dissolved, then rinse with warm water. Exfoliating is great as it removes build-up of dead skin, evens out your lip tone and allows the next product to penetrate properly. Just remember to be very gentle as lip skin is extremely thin and tender.
Hot Tip: If there is any excess sugar mixture left over, apply it to your hands or elbows. These areas can always do with some extra exfoliation!
Step 3: Nourish and protect
Next, apply a protective, nourishing lip product, as needed throughout the day. The ideal product, such as Ogee’s Sculpted Lip Oil, will deliver hydration to the lips while acting as a barrier to seal the moisture in. Generally, a traditional lip balm will not be sufficient because, in addition to being laden with toxic chemicals, it only provides an occlusive barrier without adding any hydration, which ends up drying out your lips even more over time.
We recommend applying Ogee’s Sculpted Lip Oil liberally on a daily basis. Formulated with the most divine organic Coconut, Jojoba, Vitamin E and Sunflower oils, it hydrates and moisturizes, while Peppermint essential oil gives it a minty, yet buttery, tingle and lightly plumps your lips. Once the oils are absorbed, you’re left with a light emollient layer of gorgeous organic Beeswax and Shea butter which act as a seal to lock in all the goodness and protect against harmful free radicals.
Follow this easy 3-step routine daily for the next 3 days, then once a week thereafter to reset your chapped lips and get them into smooth, plump and totally kissable shape forever!
