Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you’ve probably heard about the wonders of coconut oil. Not only is coconut oil natural and nourishing as a superfood, but it’s also fantastic for your skin. If you’re looking for the ultimate natural moisturizer, look no further than coconut oil.

Everyone likes to look and feel great, but if you’re like us, you don’t have time to think about every little thing. That’s why we use curated beauty boxes like the Beautycon Box and it’s also why we only make super simple beauty recipes like this one.

Unfortunately, coconut oil causes some people to break out because their skin is already oily and adding more oil is just a little too much. The great news is that even if you don’t want to use coconut oil on your skin, you can still use it on your lips! With a great coconut scent and a “melt on your lips” texture, this lip gloss recipe is basically irresistible.

So, when we were looking for the perfect ingredient to make our own lip gloss, using coconut oil just made sense. All of the ingredients in this lip gloss recipe are readily available and whipping it up couldn’t be easier. And how great will it be to have a lip gloss with ingredients you can pronounce?

Here’s what you’ll need to make this great gloss:

The Ingredients

  • Coconut oil – we suggest organic, cold-pressed and unrefined oil
  • Your choice of another oil like – jojoba, avocado, olive or argan
  • A tub or pot to put your gloss in
  • A microwaveable container and something to stir with
  • Optional: Some lipstick you can use to tint your gloss

The Method

First, gather all of your ingredients. It doesn’t take long to make this gloss at all, so you’ll want to have everything on hand.

Next clean, sterilize and dry your empty container so nothing yucky can grow in there after you’ve filled it with your gloss.

All you have to do now is put your coconut oil and optional lipstick in your microwave save bowl and zap it for 10-30 seconds until the coconut oil is melted and the lipstick is softened, then stir the mixture until it’s completely combined. You can add as much or as little lipstick as you want, just keep in mind that the more you add the less “glossy” the final product will be.

At this point you can add your second oil (side note, my personal favorite is argan oil, but they’re all great!), continue to stir until every lump is gone and your gloss is super smooth. Now transfer the mixture into your container.

Coconut oil actually becomes a liquid when it gets warmer than room temperature, so you’ll want to put your container in the refrigerator for a few minutes to set. You’ll also want to make sure not to leave your gloss anywhere that’s above room temperature, like in your car on a warm day.

To Use

Just make sure your finger is clean and then rub it in the gloss and apply to your lips, it’s as easy as that! Now you’ve got a beautiful, natural and nourishing gloss that’s perfect anytime.

Have Fun with It

This gloss is so easy and inexpensive to make that you can experiment a little bit. Make one in every color, try different kinds of oils, make some for your friends! The possibilities are endless. Now, go and enjoy your perfectly hydrated and beautiful lips and let us know what your favorite ingredients are in the comments.

Introduce the topic of hosiery and stockings, discussing the different types available on the market

Hosiery and stockings have been an essential fashion accessory for centuries. Today, stockings are available in a wide variety of styles to fit different occasions, from classic sheer stockings that adorn bridal wear, to bold and textured stockings designed to pull an outfit together. And don’t forget the garter belt! Traditionally used to hold stockings in place, it can now be seen as a style statement of its own. Whether you’re looking for a bit of something sexy or you simply want stockings with a high-end feel and appearance—there’s something for everyone in the hosiery market these days.

Talk about tights, leggings, socks, and other types of hosiery in detail

Hosiery is a term used to describe stockings, pantyhose, tights, and socks. It comes in many shapes and sizes to fit the needs of individuals and is available in an array of colors and styles. Tights are typically skin-tight garments, made out of thicker fabrics such as nylon or spandex, which can be worn by both men and women. They come in full-length versions or footless varieties. Leggings are similar to tights but often times have a more tactile feel since they can be composed of materials like velour or cotton. Stockings are usually held up with a garter belt that goes around the waist; stockings are also generally lighter in weight than tights or leggings. Lastly, socks can range from ankle length to knee high depending on what they’re intended for; they come in all sorts of materials too—knit wool during cold months or lightweight cotton when it’s warmer outside. Hosiery is an incredibly diverse product that adds fashion flair to any outfit!

Offer tips on how to choose the right type of hosiery or stocking for an outfit

Sheer stockings offer much more range when it comes to building a look for any occasion, along with leg support, depending on the fabric chosen. For special occasions, stockings and garter belts can be an exquisite way to finish off your desired aesthetic with a hint of glamour and flirtation. If a traditional look isn’t what you have in mind, there are many other options available; fishnets, lace stockings, and colored stockings are just a few of the most popular types that buck up any tried-and-true style. Thinking carefully about what will work best for you and when it comes to accessories like stockings is essential in creating looks that show off your individual style and personal flair.

These garments can keep your legs warm and protect from the elements when worn under clothing, helping to minimize chafing and create a more comfortable experience. They add an extra touch of elegance to any outfit, whether it be formal or casual. Additional coverage for stockings is provided by garter belts as they hold stockings up securely without sagging. This extra layer can help improve circulation throughout the lower body, reduce discomfort related to varicose veins, and prevent leg swelling. With all these positive qualities, stockings can be an integral part of any wardrobe!
