It seems that the cold weather is dragging on and on this year! I don’t know about you, but it has greatly affected my skin this year. I especially have a difficult time keeping my lips soft and shiny – so in the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day here is a simple lip scrub to exfoliate those lips! This combination of ingredients works because the sugar sloughs away dead skin, while the honey, which is a humectant, helps your lips retain moisture. The Olive oil is also moisturizing, while the peppermint and orange lift your spirits out of the never-ending winter gloom! Just mix these ingredients together, massage into lips and wipe with a warm cloth. Follow with your favorite lip gloss!
- 1 Tablespoon of Sugar
- 1 Tablespoon of Honey
- 1 Tablespoon of Olive Oil
- 3 drops of sweet orange essential oil
- 2 drops of peppermint essential oil
Essential oils should be available at your local health food stores – if not, you can buy some at my favorite shop, Cosmic Flower. Have fun and go kiss your sweetie! (only if they’re wearing green of course! 🙂
