Chapped lips, Part 2

Hi Beauties!

I have missed you so much! I have been enjoying life, taking time to myself and just learning more and more each day! As you know, it is now Winter (not my favorite season)! Being as though that it is now Winter the air is now cold and DRY and being that the air is dry this may cause dry skin, brittle hair and of course CHAPPED LIPS! I previously talked about chapped lips briefly, today I wanna get a little more into this topic.

We often try to treat our lips way after they have gotten chapped. They start off dry, then we lick. Then we lick, lick, lick, again and again. Then they start to get chapped and we try to use lip balm, at this point forget about it, it’s already way too late and our lips start to crack! Going through this cycle repeatedly your lips may become discolored from lack of moisture. (discoloration can also come from smoking, dehydration even applying lipstick can discolor your lips) which is why it’s so important that we try to keep our lips moist before they get dry and of course always make sure you stay hydrated!

Discoloration in the lips can be embarrassing and you might find yourself trying to cover it up with lipstick (and we all know that most lipsticks are toxic). Well, hide no more, Beauty! I have a solution for you! My lips had gotten really discolored, as you can see in the picture above on the left. I started dabbing apple cider vinegar on my lips with a cotton ball each time before I applied my lip scrub (lip scrub coming soon). Within two weeks my lips were revived of its color and were as plump as ever (as pictured above on the right)!

Apple cider vinegar is well known for it’s magical toning properties, so usually when I see discoloration on my skin, apple cider vinegar is my go to! Having a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in your tea can be very beneficial not only for your skin but for your health overall. It flushes the toxins out of your body, leading you to optimal health! I hope I’ve been helpful my beauties, please check back for more health and beauty tips. Love you all!

Benefits of Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is awesome, especially for your skin in my experiences! Apple cider vinegar seems to fade pimples and scars overnight! Apple cider vinegar disputes wrinkles, clears/restores the skin and removes toxins! If it seems like you can’t get rid of acne no mater what you use, try apple cider vinegar! It will lift all the dirt in your pores.

I have oily skin so I love to use apple cider vinegar as a toner. Apple cider vinegar alone can burn your skin so it’s important that you dilute it, making it half water and half apple cider vinegar. In my apple cider toning potion I love to add essential oils, one of my favorite oils I use is tea tree oil! Tea tree oil is good for combating acne. I usually have my apple cider toning potion in a spray bottle so that I can just spray it onto a cotton ball and rub my face before I go to bed.
