I don’t know about you guys, but transitional weather always throws my skin for a loop. It seems just when my skin has adjusted to the new weather and I feel like I’ve got everything under control, all it takes is a rise or fall in the temps to take it all back.
Lately my lips have been getting pretty dry. At first, I felt the need for a little balm and then slowly but surely my pucker progressively started to resemble sandpaper. The hair mask I made weeks ago did wonders for my tresses so I figured why not seek out another natural way to get my kisser back to well, kissable.
I discovered some great combinations of DIY treatments that both exfoliate and nourish. A great lip scrub will do just that, slough away dry skin but also infuse moisture back in simultaneously.
Below are two different kinds of scrubs you can make at home. I can’t decide which one I love more! Let me know what you think…
• 1 tsp of olive oil
• 1 tsp honey
• 1 tsp brown sugar
• 1 tsp of sugar
• 1 tsp of coconut oil
• 3-5 drops of peppermint oil
Mix these ingredients in a tiny saucer or cup to create a scrub consistency. With clean hands, gently buff the treatment into your lips for about a minute. The key word here is gently. You don’t want to irritate the delicate skin.
Rinse the scrub away and pat dry. Lastly, dab a moisturizing balm or better yet, leftover coconut oil onto your fresh and clean, happy lips.
