Because of the recent harsh weather , many of us are suffering from severe dry lips. I try to keep up with the dryness with a bit of Vaseline every now and then but sometimes it just doesnt do the trick. With , this in mind , I came to the conclusion that I needed to get a good lip scrub. It was then that I realised , you don't need to cash out on a lip scrub , you can make your own. Sugar is a great natural exfoliate which is why it is used in many of the high quality lip scrubs .
-3 drops of olive oil
-1 tbsp of sugar
- 1/4 tsp of lip balm (something like carmex or Vaseline)
- Peppermint Oil (this is completely optional, but is good for a little flavour)
Get a small container and put in your lip balm. Add in 1tbsp of sugar and stir until everything is mixed together. Add 3 drops of olive oil , and if you would like, add two drops of peppermint oil. Mix well then rub it all over your lips for around 30 seconds. leave the mixture on your lips for around 1-2 minutes so all the moisturisers can soak in. Wipe off with a warm damp cloth. Then 'vio la! ' smooth kissable lips!
I'd recommend you to do this around 3 times a week and you'll see a big difference.
You could even double or triple the batch and store in the fridge in an air-tight container. You can then use this scrub whenever you need but it would be probably best to keep it no longer than 1week.
I hope your all having a lovely week
