I just love this antioxidant rich red lip gloss recipe.
Many lip gloss recipes call for using fake colorings like Kool-Aid....
But this gloss is made from anti-oxidant rich Cranberries!
This is a great option if you’re looking for an eco-friendly, simple gloss to help reduce lip lines on, above, and below the mouth.
Plus, making your own recipe is great for those with skin sensitive allergies because you control exactly what goes into your homemade lip gloss.
You can make your gloss as shiny, creamy or "balmy" as you want. Whatever fits you mood and desires. ............
Consider using any left over red fruit like:
You can even make several different ones and keep them on hand to suit your needs. While it may take some time to make -- it’s worth it.
Here's the recipe for an antioxidant, vitamin rich lip gloss that will not only give you shiny hydrated lips shine but can also help plump up those tiny lines and slow the aging of your lips.
Here is what you’ll need:
NOTE: You can get the small containers at any Dollar store, drugstore, or Target where they sell small containers and travel size cosmetics from traveling.
The sieve or cheese cloth can be purchased at most supermarkets. I've even used a clean, very thin piece of cotton cloth.
Cranberry Lip Gloss
This one is my favorite. It’s loaded with wrinkle preventing antioxidants and does a great job of protecting, hydrating and plumping dry lips – especially during the winter.
Here's What You'll Need:
Some people make large batches at a time. If you choose to do so – just double or triple the recipe. Make sure to keep the large batch in the refrigerator for best results.
This recipe offers excellent protection against aging and wrinkle formation. And honey is an super humectant – which means it helps hold moisture keeping your lips plump and hydrated.
If this anti-aging lip gloss recipe is too runny or oily for your taste?
You can add a small amount of beeswax - about 1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons- more or less to your liking . ..........
TIP: When making a balm, I like to use little plastic lip gloss pots which are wider and shallower. Since the mixture will be waxy, you'll need to be able to run your fingers across it and smooth over the lips.
Now keep in mind this recipe is not as thick as your standard glosses go...it's more emollient rich to help fill in and smooth out those tiny, crinkly lines that form on our lips as we age.
