Make your own cucumber lip balm

Make your own natural, homemade and zero-waste cucumber lip balm.

Do you have your lips dry and cracked?

This is very common, especially in winter and with change in seasons.

Lipsticks create a lot of waste because they are often packaged as little plastic sticks. You don’t really know what they contain, and you probably overpay for them.

Why not switching to this super simple natural remedy for chapped lips?

Cucumber contains 90% water for hydration, vitamin C and caffeic acid which calms the skin.

Recipe:

  1. Mash a few slices of raw cucumber
  2. Rub gently the juice on your lips
  3. Rinse after 10 min.

You can also simply gently rub a cooled slice of raw cucumber on your lips for a cleanup.
