In my previous post, I shared a DIY Lipgloss that I found on Beautylish. Now, here’s a DIY Lip Scrub recipe that helps you put your best pout forward! (LOL). If you’re going to take the timeto make a cool gloss, why not take an extra 10 minutes to whip up this mix and get smooth lips.
• 1 tbsp. Vaseline (a natural salve or balm can be substituted if petroleum’s not your bag)
• 1 tbsp. Honey
• 2 tbsp. Sugar (I prefer white—it’s grainier)
• Flavor (here’s where you can get creative—I mixed in a squirt of chocolate syrup, but feel free to use maple, caramel, strawberry, or even a drop or two of your favorite essential oil)
Combine the ingredients in the container of your choice (a small glass jar works well, or you can re-appropriate an empty moisturizer container), mixing until everything is thoroughly combined. You can add more sugar or more honey depending on how you want the consistency. You can even stir in a tiny pinch of cayenne pepper for a bonus plumping effect.
Then scoop a silver dollar-sized amount onto your lips (try to resist the urge to eat it!) and slowly massage it in for 1-3 minutes. You can massage with an old toothbrush for extra exfoliation. Then rinse the mixture off your lips and smooth on your favorite lip balm. Now go kiss someone!
Seriously for you beauty lovers, if you don’t visit Beautylish or have the app, you are missing out on some wonderful ideas and tips.
