Sugar, lemon & olive oil lip scrub
The original recipe for this was an AndreasChoice recipe. But then you know how it works, you watch a vid, run to the kitchen to recreate it, use it for a little while, then start 2 realize that you should add some of this or that to match YOUR needs !
My Recipe :
- 3 teaspoons of white sugar (i prefer white sugar for my lips & brown sugar for my face, personal preference)
- 1 teaspoon of lemon
- 1 teaspoon of 100% extra virgin olive oil
Purpose : Gets rid of the dead cells
How-to : 1x week, in the shower or before bed, exfoliate gently your lips using half a teaspoon of the mix. Make sure you GENTLY massage it on your lips, trying 2 take off all the dead skins
PROS : the olive oil in this mix helps to keep some moisture on your lips, you can do it 2x to 3x a week specially in winter
CONS : don’t get it in your mouth the combo might taste weird (i liked it though, lol)
