2 in 1: home-made lip balm and moisturizer ๐Ÿ’†โ€โ™€๏ธ


Zero waste / Saturday, April 20th, 2019

It took me a long time to make my own lip balm and moisturizer although thereโ€™s nothing easier! While I was writing a list of all the industrial beauty products that I was still using in order to replace them, I realized that I used those two every single day.

So I started to think about a recipe and ask myself what I could mix up together to get the awesome following result. And this is the recipe I came up with. Since using it, I don’t even use foundation anymore, my skin is glowing. Loving it!

Rich in vitamins A, D and E, avocado oil softens, regenerates and helps to heal the skin. Also rich in Omega 3 and 9 essential fatty acids, it is very effective in strengthening and moisturizing. Rich in antioxidants as well, it stimulates the production of collagen, thus delaying signs of aging.

As far as beeswax is concerned, the list of benefits is long! It is naturally rich in vitamin A, moisturizing, nourishing, soothing and healing. It also forms a waterproof and natural film on the skin, therefore protecting it from external aggressions and emphasizing its moisturizing benefits.
In addition to its nourishing properties, beeswax is also ideal for sensitive skins prone to imperfections.

As for rosemary essential oil, it offers several interesting properties. Indeed, it reduces excess sebum and has powerful anti-inflammatory compounds that help reduce redness and rashes. It is also antibacterial promoting the treatment of acne and promotes the elimination of environmental toxins absorbed by the skin.

The ingredients:
5 tablespoons organic avocado oil
2 teaspoons organic beeswax
5 drops Rosemary essential oil

Step by step:
1. Melt the bee wax in a water-bath.
2. Incorporate the avocado oil and stir together.
3. Remove from heat and add the Rosemary essential oil.
4. Transfer into a glass jar and wait until cool.

And voilร , thatโ€™s all there is to it!
