DIY Sugar Lip Scrub Recipe
Countless numbers of brands, blogs and skin care experts advise us to exfoliate our skin to keep it looking smooth and healthy. Strange that no one really mentions our lips, those pouting pillows that that we use every day whilst speaking, eating and kissing our loved ones.
Exfoliating your lips once a week keeps them smooth and free of any dead skin, and for all you lipstick lovers, it sets the perfect base to apply your chosen lippy too! (Remember to always add your favourite lip balm post exfoliation).
Making your own scrub at home is pretty easy. Below is my DIY recipe:
1 tablespoon of loose brown sugar granules
1 tablespoon of runny honey or olive oil as an alternative
Method: Mix chosen ingredients together in a small bowl then apply to lips and gently rub them for a minute or two. Wash off and apply your favourite lip balm! (If you go for the honey option just be careful not to eat it before you scrub!)
If making your own lip scrub is not really practical for you, (as let’s face it you can hardly carry around a bottle of olive oil in your makeup bag!) then keep an eye on the blog for the low down on my favourite shop bought lip scrub.
