This is where the fun part starts.

1. Healing Macadamia Nut

If you're lips are extremely cracked, bleeding, or peeling, consider adding 1 teaspoon of macadamia nut oil. This oil is a strong hydrator and moisture attacking emollient.

This super rich oil prevents scaling and flaking and contains antioxidants to prevent aging and damage from the environment. Since macadamia nut oil is very emollient, I would make it into balm…the recipe for this is as follows:

  • melt 1-2 teaspoon of beeswax in the microwave for a few seconds
  • then add 1 or 2 teaspoons of macadamia nut oil and mix well
  • pour into small contain and let cool until it firms



2. Antioxidant Rich Vitamin E

You can substitute vitamin E oil which is also a potent antioxidant that helps encourage elasticity to cells which can support firmer a pucker. Help your lips get younger with continue use.

  • Just puncture open 1-2 vitamin E oil gel caps.
