At the same time you will need to reapply throughout the day, you will avoid introducing chemicals and toxins into your body.

The simplest products are often loaded with scary ingredients. Instead of accidentally ingesting toxic chemicals through the lip moisturizer, make your own.

Keep your skin moisturized and repair it while you sleep through the application of coconut oil gently on your face.
