Lip Spa Therapy at Home - Do It Yourself - DIY

The Anatomy of Lips

The skin of the lip, with three to five cellular layers, is very thin compared to typical face skin, which has up to 16 layers. With light skin color, the lip skin contains fewer melanocytes (cells which produce melanin pigment , which give skin its color). Because of this, the blood vessels appear through the skin of the lips, which leads to their notable red coloring. With darker skin color this effect is less prominent, as in this case the skin of the lips contains more melanin and thus is visually darker. The skin of the lip forms the border between the exterior skin of the face, and the interior mucous membrane of the inside of the mouth.

The lip skin is not hairy, and does not have sweat glands or sebaceous glands. Therefore it does not have the usual protection layer of sweat and body oils which keep the skin smooth, inhibit pathogens, and regulate warmth.

For these reasons, the lips dry out faster and become chapped more easily. - Source Wikipedia


So Just like we take care of our skin we need to take extra care of lips too...
I used to Suffer from dry, chapped lips all the time until I did my Lip Spa Therapy
Here is what i do to make my Lips soft ,supple and nourished...

Ok this is the first and foremost important step...



You will need
1/2 tsp of Honey
