All unnatural ingredients contain a health risk and you never really know what is in your lipstick, do you? Especially the cheap ones that come from places where there is limited or no testing done. There is no reason to take a risk with something that you put on your mouth, take care to either find a lipstick that you are certain contains only natural ingredients or take a few minutes to make your own.
Nature’s Way Alternatives
I use Castor Oil or Olive Oil to add a natural shine to my lips in place of a lip gloss or lip stick. Castor Oil is well known for its antibacterial, moisturising and anti-aging properties. Both oils will not only moisturise your lips but they will also feed your lips with nourishing nutrients. Using petroleum jelly for your lips suffocates your lips and offers no nutritional value. The name says it all, it comes from petrol.
• No harmful chemicals
• No cancer risks
• Save money
NATURE’S WAY LIPSTICK
Ingredients: Castor Oil
Method: Smooth onto your lips with your fingers or a small lip brush as a subtle lip-gloss in place of lip-gloss or lipstick.
More lipstick recipes:
There are many recipes available for homemade lipsticks using natural ingredients, here are some:
Melt the first three ingredients together over a bowl of boiling water. Add cocoa or colouring and mix very well. Pour into an old washed out lipstick container or buy lip balm tins from Amazon or somewhere similar.
Gently melt the ingredients together. Stir well and mash the berries. Let the mixture stand for a few minutes then strain the mixture through a fine sieve to remove all the pieces of cranberry. Pour into a lip balm container for a shiny lipstick.
Now it’s your turn.
