How to Make a Lip Scrub
Lips become dehydrated easily and those unsightly little bits of skin appear that keep you from showing off your favorite sexy, sensual lipstick. If you notice that this part of your face is dry or cracked, it is a good idea to carry out a thorough exfoliation to remove all the dead cells and quickly restore its softness. It is also very simple, as some household products can be used from the comfort of your own home. In the following OneHowTo article you'll discover how to make a scrub for your lips and show off a beautiful and irresistible mouth.
Honey and sugar
This is one of the most effective and popular recipes to make a lip scrub at home. This is because in a single treatment you get the powerful moisturizing properties of honey with the exfoliating properties of sugar to get juicy lips free of little bits of skin. Mix both ingredients and apply the paste onto your lips with circular movements.
Vaseline and sugar
If you like using Vaseline to moisturize your lips, you should know that it is also an ideal product to make a good home lip scrub. It's as easy as adding a little brown or white sugar to the Vaseline and apply the mixture with the help of a toothbrush with soft bristles. You will notice that your lips instantly improve and seem nourished and full.
Coffee and almond oil
The beans in fine ground coffee are excellent for removing dead skin and impurities. That is why we're proposing this lip scrub with coffee and almond oil. This will keep your lips moisturized and looking beautiful and healthy. Mix one tablespoon of ground coffee with one of almond oil and apply the resulting paste on your lips with a toothbrush or your fingers.
Salt and cinnamon
One last useful ingredient to make a homemade lip scrub if you don't have any ground coffee or sugar is sea salt as it can also help exfoliation. Pour one third of a teaspoon of salt and cinnamon and a teaspoonful of olive oil in a container, mix and apply with your fingers gently on your lips.
Do not forget to properly moisturize your lips right after the scrub. Applying a repairing balm is sufficient or, if you prefer, try some natural methods that we suggest in the article how to moisturize your lips without chapstick.
