Honey and avocado lip mask
1 tsp. honey
2tsp. avocado pulp mashed
Mix the two ingredients together and apply on your lips, and leave it on for 10 minutes. Wipe it off with a cloth soaked in warm water. This is good for dark outer circles on the lips and wrinkles.
Yoghurt and kiwi lip mask
2 tsp. Greek yoghurt
1 tsp. mashed kiwi pulp
Mix the two ingredients together and apply it on your lips for 10 minutes. Wipe it off with a wash cloth soaked in warm water. The lactic acid in the yoghurt peels the dead skin cells from the lips, revealing brighter skin beneath.
Aloe vera and brown sugar
2 tsp. aloe vera gel
1 tsp. brown sugar
Mix the two ingredients together and apply it on your lips for 10 minutes. Now gently scrub your lips until you have removed the dry skin flakes. After the massage, let the mask sit for another 5 minutes. Now gently wipe it off with a wash cloth soaked in warm water. This is an exfoliating lip mask and provides hydration to your lips.
