Now that summer is coming to an end I wanted to share my secret tips and tricks to keep your chapped lips at bay!
I always suggest doing a lip scrub for all of your desired lip looks because there is nothing worse than a bold lip with dry, chapped or flakey lips! No matter if you’re on a budget or you just don’t want to spend $50 on a lip scrub you can use my simple DIY ingredients below to get the results you’re looking for- ENJOY & scrub away!
Ingredients & Directions
2 tsp of sugar
½ tsp of honey
¼ tsp of extra virgin olive oil
½ tsp of vitamin E oil
Petroleum jelly or coconut oil (I use petroleum jelly- it’s not as “runny”)
- Mix your sugar, honey, olive oil, and petroleum jelly into a thick paste or scrub texture.
- Apply the mixture to your lips and gently scrub in a circular motion (I like to set a timer for 3-5 mins).
- Remove the mixture with a warm wash cloth only. Try not to scrub your lips as you don’t want your lips to be raw!
- Once the product is removed apply a few drops of Vitamin E oil to your fingers and apply it directly to your lips. Wait a few minutes (do not remove Vitamin E oil) and then apply your petroleum jelly or coconut oil for more of a natural approach.
I hope you all enjoy my recipe and that it is helpful this coming fall! If you have any questions or suggestions please find me on Facebook or Instagram (@rubymakeupacademy)!
