DIY Beauty: Lip Exfoliator

Sunday 5 February 2012

I believe there's a lot of good stuff for beauty remedies sitting in your kitchen cupboards right now.

There's so much potential in home made beauty fixes that have been sworn by for generations- and sometimes they even work better than the shop-bought equivalent.

In recent years, we seem to have woken up to the power of these forgotten fixes, so to celebrate that
I thought I would start spreading the word about some of my favourite homemade treats.

First up, a lip exfoliant! My lips have been getting so dried out and flaky in recent months with all the cold weather, and nothing ruins a bright, statement lip more than poor condition of the skin. Instead of rushing out to buy a lip exfoliant, you can make the following gentle home remedy:

You will need:

Granulated sugar
Olive oil

Mix together a teaspoon of granulated sugar with half a teaspoon of honey and a drop or so of olive oil- just enough to make a paste.

Smear over your lips and work in circular motions to remove the rough skin gently.

Wash off the residue and pat over your newly baby soft lips with a rich moisturiser, such as Molton Brown Moisture Lock 24hr Replenisher.

And there you have it, beautifully soft lips ready for some colour!

I'll be back with more home made remedies shortly! Xx
