Homemade lip scrub

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!

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.

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!
