I’ve noticed that during Winter my lips tend to get more chapped and they look super unhealthy and I hate the way it looks so its extremely important for me to take extra care during the colder months. A lip scrub definitely helps to exfoliate and keeps my lips super moisturized and nourished which also makes it feel and look softer.
I love making my own scrub because its so much cheaper and you get to put in your own products from your kitchen which makes it quite natural. This is definitely my go- to lip scrub and I try and use this scrub at least twice a week to ensure my lips look super healthy every day. You can say bye to chapped lips with this amazing lip scrub!
To make this scrub, you will need:
- Brown sugar
- Glycerine or vegetable glycerine
- rose water
Depending on how much you going to be needing that’s how much you should use. I usually just make a little bit each time I need to use it.
Brown sugar: Brown sugar makes a great exfoliator for the skin and lips as it dissolves easily and improves the texture of your lips.
Glycerine or vegetable glycerine: glycerine is a natural exfoliant; it has a keratolytic effect, helping with desquamation, the skins natural exfoliating process that breaks down skin cells, preventing dull, flaky skin or lips. It is also an effective moisturising ingredient, helping to soften and lubricate the lips. Lastly, glycerine hydrates; Glycerine absorbs its own weight in water over a period of a few days, making it the perfect ingredient for a dry lips.
Rose water: rose water ensures soft lips, and evens out the complexion on your lips. If used moderately, you can get really pink lips!
I also take a toothbrush and brush over my lips each night to ensure that its extremely exfoliated and soft at all times.
After using this scrub you will definitely feel and see the difference and your lips will thank you.
And oh, you welcome!
