For those who may not know, chemotherapy can have profound impacts on a patient’s lips, skin and hair.
Chemotherapy interacts with a person’s natural oils and sweat glands, drying them out. On top of the already numerous side effects chemo can cause, we have found a tip to potentially ease this specific side effect.
We have found a wonderful natural remedy to assist in putting back moisture into the skin, particularly the lips.
We have found a natural lip balm recipe from Cinco Vida, here is what you will need:
Mix olive oil and sugar together (equal amounts) and rub gently on lips to exfoliate and make them smooth
For soft lips, apply tomato paste and milk cream.
To prepare your own balm, mix 2 tsps coconut oil, lemon juice, 3 drops of lemon oil and 1 tsp bee wax.
Warm it on a low flame.
After melting, pour into a glass jar.
