Happy Sunday, QT Pi’s! Today, I am going to be sharing a super easy DIY lip scrub that I found on Pinterest! I’m pretty much obsessed with Pinterest. It is my go to especially when I have questions about things pertaining to beauty. It’s just an overall great platform to spread ideas and try new things.
I’m not sure if it’s because of the constant change in the weather, but lately, my lips have been super dry and cracked. I’m constantly putting on lip gloss, hoping it will help, but that hasn’t been doing much. I decided to take things into my own hands and make something homemade that would cut costs and help bring my lips back to life. Homemade remedies usually work better than store bought items.
Exfoliating is so important. It helps remove dead flaky skin cells from the outer layer of your skin. For this DIY, I used brown sugar, honey, and olive oil. I’d recommend starting out with a small batch using 1 tbsp. of brown sugar, 1 tbsp. of honey and 1 tbsp. of olive oil since this will be your first time making it. Combine the ingredients in a small bowl and mix them all together. The brown sugar is good for sensitive skin and will scrub away dead skin. It is also great at hydrating and conditioning the skin. The use of honey is great because it helps remove scars and is organic. How awesome is that? Olive oil was also used in this lip scrub because it is a good lubricate for the skin.
After the mixture is complete, apply in a circular motion to lips for about 20-30 seconds. You can also use a tooth brush if you don’t want your hands to get too sticky. I’d suggest dampening your lips a little with either water or a lip balm so the brush isn’t too harsh on your lips when you apply the scrub. After the 20-30 seconds of applying in a circular motion, rinse off mixture with cool water. Apply a moisturizer or lip balm. I used Shea Butter.
It is best to exfoliate no more than 2 times a week. You can also use this scrub on your body too. Your skin will definitely be softer and more moisturized.
Until we meet again, continue to sparkle!
