Sumptuous Angelina Jolie lips? Yes please!
Cracked, dry, sore lips? No thanks.
Dry lips are irritating and often we find ourselves desperately lathering on various ointments or balms which don’t actually seem to do much or help the situation. But fear not, I have a solution that you can:
1) Make yourself
2) Gift to others
3) Eat because it’s delicious
It’s my Sonia Allen Make Up Lip Scrub. Takes 5 minutes to make, works to exfoliate and hydrate lips and taste-testing is the best bit.
You need the following ingredients:
- 1 tablespoon of brown or white sugar or a 50-50 mix of both
- 1 tsp honey (just enough to make the sugar really stick together)
- ½ tsp coconut oil
- ½ drop of vanilla (only for the taste and smell, not an essential)
- 1 small container
Mix everything together in a bowl. Seriously that easy!
Then spoon into small jars.
If you’re gifting them, make them look pretty.
Directions for use
Once a week (twice at the max) gently rub the scrub onto your lips to loosen dead skin. Let it sit for 1 minute and then wipe off with a damp washcloth…. or errrrrrr…. the ingredients are edible and tasty so no one would judge if you “ingested” it off. Apply a nourishing lip treatment after use like the Hourglass No.28 Lip Treatment Oil or the Essential Kit Multipurpose Wonder Balm.
And there you have it, a simple homemade scrub that is simple to make and enjoyable to use.
