How to make a natural and inexpensive lip scrub?
Gentle female sponges in the winter need particularly careful care. Lip scrub will come to the rescue with balms and hygienic lipstick. A home scrub, cooked on your own, will help you gently care for your lips during the cold season. It will not only gently smooth the skin of the lips and remove the cracks, but also improve blood circulation – this will make your lips more beautiful, tender and bright. Lip scrub, of course, you can buy in the store, but let’s do it ourselves. It will be much cheaper and more natural. It will not take long.
The most beautiful thing is that the scrub is made from the usual components that almost every hostess has in the house. Cooking scrubs need only once and apply immediately while they are still fresh. Lips are treated mainly 1-2 times a week. One of the most popular recipes that I use myself is a sugar-honey scrub. The name immediately makes it clear that we need honey and sugar. Cooking is very simple. In a small container, you add 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of sugar, mix it all up and give it for half an hour. Then apply to the lips, gently rub it in, let it soak for 5 minutes and then rinse. Everything is very easy, the main thing is not to eat it during the procedure. The second scrub recipe is Vaseline based.
To do this, you will need to mix Vaseline with sugar or salt. In 1 teaspoon of vaseline, add 3-4 pinches of sugar and 2 drops of essential oil of mint or lemon. Such a remedy not only perfectly cleanses, but also tones the skin of the lips. But make sure that you do not have allergies to these essential oils. The third lip scrub – with sugar and olive oil. To do this, you will need 1 teaspoon of white sugar, 1/3 teaspoon of water, 1/3 teaspoon of olive oil. Apply the scrub on the lips for 30−40 seconds, gently massaging the skin, and then rinse the lips, first with warm and then cool water.
The fourth scrub is made from honey, cottage cheese and rolled oats. It is necessary to mix honey, low-fat cottage cheese and ground hercules flakes in equal portions. Apply the mixture on the lips for a few minutes, gently massaging the lips with your fingertips. Scrub off with cool water. It is very important to steam your lips before applying such a scrub. The fifth scrub is made of almond and glycerin, I learned about it from my mother. But this scrub needs more time and blanks. First you need to soak two almond nuts in water for 8 hours. After chopping almonds and add a few drops of glycerin. All scrubs are applied to the lips equally. And it is important to know that after using any scrub you need to put on hygienic lipstick or lip balm. There are many advantages to home scrubs. They are natural, they smell good and you know all the ingredients, unlike the store stocks. But cons are also present. Home scrub is not very convenient to apply on the lips. Honey is sticky, it drips from the lips, fingers sticky. But if you stay at home, then I think you can spend 5 minutes of your time for the sake of beautiful and tender lips. I hope this information was useful to you and you will find a recipe that is right for you.
