Beetroot for Pink Lips – DIY Steps:
Pick the beetroot and wash it thoroughly to remove all dirt and germs from it. Now peel off the outer layer and cut the beetroot into small pieces. Then put these pieces into the food processor. Now you have to grind the beetroot pieces well so that there is a visible watery residue. When you grind beetroot, make sure not to add any water because that can dilute the vibrancy of the colour.
Now you have to strain the juice of grated beetroot carefully and make sure that no bits or pieces get in to it. Take a clean container and transfer the stained beetroot juice into it. You can store this for future use. You can use an old lip balm case as the container and store the tint. The container or jar that you use for storing the tint should be cleaned well and sterilized. To clean the case, you can wipe off any residual product that may be present in it and then wash it well. Then you can sterilize it by rubbing it with alcohol.
After pouring the tint into the container, add about one teaspoon of coconut oil to it. If you are on the looking for a sheer lip colour, then you can add some more coconut oil to the beetroot tint. If coconut oil added is less than a teaspoon, then the formula of the lip tint may become dry and flaky on your lips. So, make sure that you add adequate amount of the oil. Instead of coconut oil, you can also use honey or beeswax. They can also do a good job and they are great for keeping your lips well moisturized.
Now you can blend the mixture well by using a clean spoon or a toothpick. Place the container in the refrigerator and you can wait for it to solidify. Once it gets solidified, you can use it. This lip tint is completely natural and do not contain any preservatives in it. So, you have to store it in the refrigerator to prevent it from getting spoiled.
Since this is natural, you can apply it on your lips as often as you please. You will soon get pinker and softer lips. By adding sugar granules to this tint, you can use it as a good lip scrub.
