Looking to enhance your natural lip color with an infusion of roses and hydrating them at the same time and not to mention plumping them too! Roses. The natural way to hydrate and get a beautiful color enhancement in a natural way. Roses from your garden may be used too if you have any.
Roses contain a good deal of Vitamin C and are very safe for human consumption. The petals can be eaten raw to increase blood circulation, and they also relieve depression. Rose tea acts as a mild laxative. A paste or cream made from the petals does wonders to improve the condition of the skin, especially on the face.
- Wash a handful of rose petals thoroughly in water. Soak the petals in milk for a few hours. (If you have issues with dairy products, you can soak them in glycerin instead.)
- Mash the rose petals into a thick paste.
- Apply the paste on your dry lips two to three times a day and every night before going to bed.
