3 DIY Lip Masks for a Smoother Pout

We’ve spent lots of time behind our face masks, which is all the more reason to spend a little

time focusing on our lips. Winter and spring can do a number on our skin, so now is the perfect

time to practice a little self-care before the summer months ahead so you can put your best

smile forward.

Cooling Aloe Lip Treatment

Aloe vera is often used during the summer to treat sunburns, but its benefits extend much

further than post-sun care. Aloe vera contains enzymes, antioxidants and vitamins A and C.

These ingredients help to provide moisture to dry skin and help calm inflammation. Aloe vera is

suitable for all skin types (including sensitive skin), making this a perfect mask for summertime.

You’ll need:

● Bottle of aloe vera

Recipe steps:

1. Before bed, apply a small amount of aloe vera to chapped lips.

2. Rinse it off in the morning and apply throughout the day as needed.

Hydrating Lip Mask

Avocado is the star ingredient in this lip mask and it boasts many benefits for the body including

boosting hair health. The natural oils in avocados provide lips with moisture to nourish, soften and

hydrate. Avocados can also help reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Because avocados contain vitamins

E and C, they can help protect the skin against environmental toxins and dirt.

You’ll need:

● 2 teaspoons of mashed avocado

● 1 teaspoon of honey

Recipe steps:

1. Mash up the avocado and put two teaspoons in a bowl.

2. Add honey and mix.

3. Apply to lips for 20 minutes for moisturized lips.

Chocolate Lip Scrub

Cocoa powder isn’t just for desserts — it mas many skin benefits including strong antioxidants

benefits. This is important because antioxidants help protect our skin against free radicals and

help repair damage caused by environmental toxins, car exhaust, ultraviolet light and household

chemicals. Additionally, cocoa powder has been known to help fade the appearance of scars.

You’ll need:

● 2 tablespoons of brown sugar

● 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder

● 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

● 2 teaspoons of olive oil

● 3/4 teaspoon of raw honey


1. Mix together all ingredients in a small bowl.

2. Once blended, apply the scrub to your lips and massage in a circular motion.

3. Leave the mask on for five minutes and wash off with warm water.

Self-care is all about finding the things that make you feel happy and relaxed and doing more of

that. For more ideas on how to pamper yourself, check out this infographic with six more DIY lip
