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.
