Got dry flaky lips? You need to exfoliate them and here's how to do it...
Why spend big bucks on a store bought lip exfoliation system when you can make your own with just 2 basic ingredients you've probably already got in your kitchen pantry.
Homemade Lip Exfoliator Recipe:
- 1 teaspoon of organic brown sugar (light or dark)
- 1 teaspoon organic extra virgin olive oil
- Small bowl to mix in
***Make sure to do this mini 'spa treatment' over a sink...it can be a tad messy. =-)
Simply mix the the brown sugar with the olive oil until a paste forms. Using clean hands, apply the paste to your lips and begin to work in gentle circular motions. Continue to do this until your lips feel smooth. The brown sugar is the exfoliator while the olive oil imparts much needed moisture. Plus, it tastes yummy and is 100% natural! Gently wash away any excess paste with lukewarm water. Lastly apply your favorite natural lip balm and you're done!
Do this treatment 2x's per week and you'll keep that beautiful pucker totally soft and kissable.
PS- The same recipe above works wonders for the hands and feet as well. Simply increase the amount of each ingredient, perhaps add a drop or twoof your favorite essential oils and it's smoooooth sailing. My favorite essential oils to add to a hand/foot scrub are peppermint and lemon. Aaaahhhh, smells DIVINE.
