DIY lip scrub

Good Morning,Ā  Good Afternoon, Good Evening,
Depending on where you are in the world, I hope you’re having a good time.

I was chatting with a couple of friends of mine and the topic of soft lips came up. I honestly didn’t know how much people neglect their lips. As in come on, that’s one of the first places people look at on your face (or am I the only one who does that) and seeing as first impressions matter, you’d obviously would want people to talk of how good your lips are looking.

Not to pat myself on the back, but I do have soft, good looking lips šŸ˜€ which I attribute to a daily lip scrub & constantly moisturizing them.

All you need for the scrub is;
* 1 tablespoon brown sugar.

* 1/2 tablespoon olive oil.

* 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon.

*Mix everything up and gently apply on your lips in circular motions for a few minutes.
*Wipe it off.
*Follow with your favourite lip balm.
P.S; you can tweak the measurements to suit you.

-The brown sugar is used to exfoliate the dry skin.
-The olive oil is used to seal in moisture.
-The cinnamon has various health benefits. You can read all about them here
In the scrub the cinnamon is used to give one fuller lips. The tingly feeling you get when its on your lips will make the blood rush to your lips giving them that nice red colour.

You can also put vaseline and dab a pinch of cinnamon and let it sit for a few minutes. This will give you that full Angelina Jolie pout :-*

I swear by this lip scrub and hey no one wants to be kissing on some dry, chapped lips. Try it out and tell me what you think. I’m 100% sure your partners will love having soft, succulent lips around them. Hahaha

Till next time loves,
Joan.
