Winters are setting in, and its dryness has already started showing up on our skin and lips. More than anything else we suffer dry lips, as they feel chapped and leathery that you need to use your tongue to wet them every time you talk. Not to mention, lip balms are hardly doing the trick anymore because their effect wears off after a while and your lips are back to feeling rough and parched.
Stop bothering with these fancy lip gels and balms, you need a nourishing lip scrub that will remove the layer of dead skin cells which is making them look dark and craggy. It is actually quite simple to put together this natural lip scrub with some basic ingredients that are available in every kitchen, and in a few minutes you will have baby soft, pink lips, despite the winter cold.
2tsp Olive oil
Method of Preparation:
In a bowl pour out the honey, and then blend in the olive oil into a homogeneous mix. Further on, tip in the sugar and combine till it forms a thick lumpy mixture. Add more sugar if the scrub is too runny.
Once ready, scrub your dry lips with the mixture thoroughly. Then take a toothbrush and massage over your lips for a few minutes in a circular motion. Rinse off with warm water and apply your favourite lip balm. Your lips will instantly feel clean, soft and plump.
If your problem of dry lips is rampant, do this thrice a week for two weeks and see the results. Your lips will be lush, pink and kissable even in the cold months.
Honey is a natural moisturiser that has deep nourishing properties especially if the area has been exposed to the sun. It hydrates the skin and also owing to its anti-inflammatory properties soothes any burning sensation due to sunburn among others.
Why Olive Oil
Olive oil is loaded with anti-ageing antioxidants and being an intense moisturiser, it softens the skin and nourishes it by removing the dryness.
Sugar is a natural exfoliator that removes dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface layer making the lips looks dark. It helps cleanse the dirt in the skin and reveal its natural colour.
