DIY: Strawberry Lip Balm

Lip balms are to lips what socks are to feet – you can do without them, but using them is so much better.

Chapped lips hurt pretty badly if consistently uncared for, and certain seasons or environments can lend themselves far too well to making your lips dry up incredibly quickly.

Applying lip balms on the regular can seriously improve the state of your lips, while protecting them from the elements effectively.

Remembering to reapply lip balm can be annoying for some, but a delicious flavor can prove just the right encouragement to do so. Unfortunately, many flavored lip balms are less than healthy to keep on your lips 24/7. A slew of questionable chemical inclusions makes such lip balms outright dangerous to use, let alone occasionally ingest when you lick your lips.

The recipe in this article demonstrates just how easily you can avoid dealing with dangerous substances in your lip balm without sacrificing tasty flavors and intoxicating smells in the process. Enriched with strawberry essence, this is a great option to consider and cost-effective too.

Since strawberries are great antioxidants and help in renewal of cells, they bring out the natural pinkish tone of your lips, adding more glamour to your persona.
