Hello guys! Today I want to talk about one of the facial parts I prefer, lips! Mine are very sensitive and often dry, so I need to take care of them a lot. One of the treatments I prefer to do is definitely the lips scrub, because it is very useful and effective, but also easy and fast.
What you need is:
· 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil — moisturizing
· 1 tablespoon of white or brown sugar (cane sugar is more “aggressive” so if you have sensitive lips you can use white sugar, or use both) — exfoliating
· 1 tablespoon of honey — moisturizing
You can adjust the doses at your own pace, of course!
Clean your lips, they must be dry and free to make up!
My lips before:
So! Mix the three ingredients and apply the compound on your lips with your fingers, gently massaging with circular movements. Let it work for a few minutes and rinse it with warm water.
My lips after:
You can play with so many different ingredients to create your favorite lips scrub, adding flavors and/or colorants (liposoluble suitable for use on the lips).
Adding a spoon of cinnamon, for example, you can create a plumping lip scrub: cinnamon is a natural volumizer, it favors circulation, creating a plumped lip effect!
Remember to apply a lip balm right after the scrub, to relax our lips. A few months ago my mom gave me the Nuxe ultra-nutritious lip balm “Rêve de Miel”. I did not know this brand, but it was a pleasant discovery! I really like this product and I recommend it, applying it every night before sleeping my lips are always moisturized and healthy!
What do you think? What is your favorite lips scrub?
