Roses ~ The eternal symbol of romance aren’t just a sight for sore eyes but a wondrous beauty ingredient too! ♥
The winsome tinge of red that one’s lips are flushed with when smeared with the DIY that I am going to let you all would surely get you hooked to this DIY. Don’t believe? Head to your garden and kitchen, grab those ingredients and whip this delectable treat for your lips!
Rose Petals : Read roses are what would be required for this recipe. The natural colour that directly comes from this natural ingredient rose adds a prepossessing tinge of pink/red without having any harsh effect. So, the next time you get those pretty flowers, don’t let them wilt. Put it to wise use!
Malai/Milk cream : Malai is the layer of cream that deposits on top of milk when milk is boiled and let to cool. That is what we need for this DIY. Malai works to deeply nourish our skin, including our lips and also improve its texture.
Glycerin : Glycerin is a wondrous humectant which helps in moisturizing skin. It is a natural cooling liquid which soothes our lips.It possesses the tendency to attract water to the skin. It also helps to circulate oxygen in skin cells. The oxygen circulation increases blood flow, which in turn makes the lips lucent.
Almond oil : By the virtue of being very high in Vitamin E, almond oil is an excellent emollient and lubricator for dry skin, particularly dry lips.
– In a clean and dry bowl, add pounded rose petals, a tbsp of malai/milk cream and a tsp each of almond oil and glycerine.
– Mix them well and apply a generous amount on your lips. It will take around 20-25 minutes to dry up completely. Wash off and apply a lip balm to seal in the moisture. Use daily. Regular use will lighten your lip’s pigmentation besides softening them!
– This lip pack can be used all with abandon. It is not gender-specific. So, all the men you know who are battling dry and unnaturally dark lips, can be recommended this lip pack.
Add crushed rose petals!
Now goes the almond oil! (Rich hydration!)
Ready! (Rosy lips on the way..!)
