We are all familiar with sheet masks – whether you are looking for hydration, exfoliation or glow, there’s a sheet mask for it. But what do you do for your lips other than complain about how dry, discoloured and chapped they look? Not much, right?
Since you pay no attention to one of the most delicate parts of your face, the skin on your lips tends to get dry easily and look chapped. So, we decided to share this amazing lip mask we’ve been using this season to get soft and plump lips. You can DIY it at home.
Yogurt and kiwi lip mask
You will need:
2 teaspoons of Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon of muddled kiwi
Step 01: Add the two ingredients in a bowl and mix them well to form a paste.
Step 02: Apply it over your lips and leave it on for about 10 minutes.
Step 03: Wipe off with a washcloth soaked in warm water afterwards.
Why this works?
The lactic acid in yogurt helps peel away old skin cells to reveal newer and brighter skin underneath. Kiwi contains Vitamin C that mildly exfoliates the skin and corrects discolouration.
Aloe vera and raw sugar
You will need:
- 2 teaspoon aloe vera gel
- 1 teaspoon of raw sugar
Step 1: Mix the two ingredients well to form a scrub.
Step 2: Gently massage the scrub on your lips for about 3 minutes.
Step 3: Let it sit for another 5 minutes before wiping off.
Why this works:
Aloe vera hydrated and nourishes lips to make them soft and smooth.
Sugar helps get rid of dead skin cells.
