DIY Lip Scrub

A lip scrub removes the layer of dead skin cells from your lips leaving them soft and smooth like never before. We all struggle to protect our skin from drying up during the chilling months of winter. The skin on our hands and face gets wrinkled and difficult to stretch, but our lips suffer the most. Even after applying a thick layer of your favorite ChapStick, it’s just a matter of hours before your lips start cracking up again. The dead skin cells start peeling off, and it’s so annoying that you often end up biting it off which ultimately leaves your lips raw. But your days worrying about parched lips are finally over because our homemade lip scrub will get rid of the layer of dead cells from your lips leaving them pink and plush for a perfect pout.

Benefits of Ingredients

The market-based lip scrubs contain harmful chemicals, which may produce adverse side effects with excessive use. Besides, there is always the question of whether a product is compatible with you or not. On the other hand, making a homemade lip scrub will not only save you a lot of money, but the natural ingredients present in it will cause no damage to your health. Honey found in the scrub will lighten your lips to a beautiful shade of pink, while the milk will keep your lips well hydrated to prevent flaking. Brown sugar acts as an exfoliator to scrub away the hardened dry cells to make your lips soft and fresh again.

Directions

Take a mixing bowl and add a tablespoon of brown sugar in it. You can also use regular sugar as well if you’d like or perhaps if the brown sugar is not available. Now add sufficient amount of honey to make a sticky paste and add a teaspoon of whole cream milk. Do not use skimmed milk as it is devoid of all fats and will not provide enough moisturization.

Finishing Up

Apply this mixture to your lips once or twice a week. Gently work them around the entire surface to remove the layer of dead skin. Make sure that you don’t rub too vigorously, which will damage the delicate skin of your lips. Leave the mixture on for about 5 minutes and then wipe it clean with a damp towel. Finish up by rubbing in a little Vaseline for a long-lasting softness.
