*This time of year—with the cooler temperatures and drier air—our complexions sure could use a pick-me-up. So we were thrilled to discover this recipe for a stay-put cheek and lip stain that can be whipped up right in your kitchen. It not only adds a healthy flush of color and instantly moisturizes, but it also works as well as the stains you find in the beauty aisle—for a fraction of the cost! *
In a small resealable container, combine:
1 tsp. pomegranate juice -OR- beet juice (from canned beets) (for a darker, more liquid stain use 2 tsp.)
*1 Tbs. warmed coconut oil *
Once the mixture is well-blended, pop it in the fridge for a few minutes (the oil should solidify, making it easier to apply). Next, dab a small amount on the apples of your cheeks and blend up toward the temples, then swipe it on your lips. Store the remaining stain in the fridge for up to one week.
How it works: The coconut oil is rich in nourishing fatty acids that protect and hydrate the skin, while the juice's pigments leaves a rosy, natural-looking glow.
