In A Lip-Lock With Hydration: 5 Lip Balms You Can Make Yourself

We’ve taught you how to make some very glamorous lipsticks and to prep your mouth for the perfect pout during the winter season with some DIYs.

Today, we concoct five lip balm solutions that revel in a variety of fragrances and flavors to suit your individual taste.

Underneath it all, they keep your lips moisturized and plumpprotect them from sun damage, have a brightening and softening effect, and make for inexpensive solutions that can be whipped up anytime you please.

Beetroot Lip Balm


Break open 2 capsules of powdered beetroot and place them in a mixing bowl. Heat 1 tbsp beeswax and 1/2 tsp of cocoa butter until they melt and combine. Stir the liquid with the beet powder, then pour into a jar and allow to cool.

Once it’s back to temperature, use the mix on your lips and cheekbones for that perfect stain and illusion of plumpness.

Chocolate & Cocoa Butter Lip Balm


Melt 3 tbsp of cocoa butter in the microwave. Add 3-4 chocolate chips and stir until they melt as well, by running the mixture in the microwave for another few seconds.

Add one vitamin E capsule and 1/4 tsp of almond oil. Stir well to keep from clumping. Apply the aphrodisiacal mix on date night.

Coconut & Tea Tree Oil Balm


In a double boiler, melt 1 cup beeswax, and then add 3 tbsp of coconut oil. Once melted, take it off the heat, stir in 1 tsp vitamin E oil and 2-3 drops of tea tree oil. Let it cool and then it is ready to use.

Lemon & Honey Lip Balm


Take equal parts of honey and lemon juice, mix well and apply it to your lips for an hour; then rinse. This DIY is an anti-tanning solution that will also moisturize your lips in the process.

It’s a wear-and-wash balm for those who are put off by the stickiness of conventional lip balms.

Basic Lip Balm


Measure out the solid ingredients, ½ cup of shea butter, ½ cup of beeswax, and ½ cup of cocoa butter, and combine them in a heatproof glass container. Microwave for one minute or warm in a double boiler.

Stir the ingredients together so the oily cocoa butter mixes with the beeswax and shea butter. Now, add 1 cup of sunflower oil and 1 cup of coconut oil. Mix well and it’s ready for use.
