Do you have a frequent problem of chapped lips? Hate it when your favorite lipstick gets all flaky and gross? Here’s a simple beauty regimen that you should add to your daily or weekly routine at home: a simple, au naturelle DIY lip scrub!
The recipe is simple:
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 2 teaspoons white granulated sugar
- A dash of lemon juice
Mix the above ingredients together making a sugary paste. Then apply onto your lips and do some light scrubbing with a toothbrush or simply with your finger in circular motions for 3-5 minutes. When you’re done, moisten a piece of cotton pad or paper towel with warm water to clean off the paste. What’s left will be your super soft lips!
The above recipe makes more than enough lip scrub for at least a couple days. You could try using the scrub on other parts of your body like elbows and knee, but I don’t see as good as an effect as on the lips. Scrub paste can be kept overnight, make sure you cover the mixture tight and refrigerate!
