Diy lip scrub
Hii guys so far this winter my lips have been getting really chapped and flakey. I have tried loads of different remedies and this is the one I liked the most 😊
so lets get into it...
Exfoliation is the 1st (and critical) step in fighting chapped lips! Exfoliating your lips twice a week will help rid of dead skin cells leaving lips soft and smooth, which allows moisture (aka lip balms) to penetrate your lips! In other words, exfoliation not only help soften your lips, it also helps your lip balm to work better!
So, if you’re experiencing dry, flaky, and chapped lips this winter… use this super easy recipe to make your very own Sugar Honey Lip Scrub. Your lips will thank you! Best part is that you probably have all the ingredients at home already, so get started now!
What you’ll need:
•Sugar: 1 tablespoon
•Honey: 1 tablespoon
•Olive Oil: 1 teaspoon
•Vaseline or Shea Butter: 1 teaspoon (Coconut oil and jojoba oil are also good alternatives)
•1 small container
1.Mix 1 tablespoon of honey with 1 tablespoon of sugar together.
2.Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil and mix well.
3.Add 1 teaspoon of Vaseline or softened shea butter and mix well.
* If shea butter is not soft, soften by warming or use a spoon to whip/beat the shea butter before adding to the lip scrub mixture.
4.Spoon into a container and use within 1-2 weeks.
How to use:
•Take a dime size amount of scrub and rub gently onto dry lips.
•Gently rub until some of the sugar has dissolved.
•Rinse well with warm water.
•Add your favourite lip balm?
•Use twice a week and your lips will be silky soft.
