When you go out at night, are you more than one dark eyes and dark lips are kind of woman?
Overall, I choose my eyes.
But occasionally, when I feel like being totally vintage glamor and change it a bit – I like the rock bright red lip color.
Lip Scrub To Get Younger Looking
For me, making a smoky eye is carefree. I know how. It’s a look that works. I like my eyes.
But the red lip creates a little more stress … I’ll leave lip marks on all my drinks? Does the lipstick on my teeth end? Am I going to eat outside of the lipstick leaving a strange looking ring red lip liner around my lips?
And especially … where all these little flakes on my lips come from?!
Scaly lips? What?
Your lips can be difficult at any time of year – but seems to occur especially in the dry winter air, and during the summer months. It makes sense – your lips are always out there in the open. And if exfoliate the rest of your body (do ??) to keep it soft and fresh … why not your lips?
I’ve heard of a lot of readers who want anti-aging solutions. Well, it may not be revolutionary, but exfoliation is a great place to start!
As we age, our skin regenerates more slowly (you may notice your hair and nails grow more slowly, cuts take longer to heal, and your skin does not have the same brightness … that’s because our skin cells have slowed down a bit!).
By exfoliating, gently rub the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal fresh new cells underneath skin. This gets rid of gray, dry, scaly skin on any part of your body. In this case – on the lips!
Homemade Lip Scrub Recipe
This homemade exfoliating lip is so super simple. Only uses 2 ingredients, you probably already have in your closet. (If you are already in the coconut fan oil club, ie if you are not still in love with coconut oil -. Go buy yourself a bottle of it and get ready to love tasty food choices and care skin provides, including my lime coconut Deodorant!)
I’ve seen other recipes that make lip scrub and body scrubs, using liquid oil with sugar inside.
But would not it be convenient to have a more travel-friendly lip scrub? Something with a good creamy texture that was not going to melt everywhere?
Intro: Coconut oil and Brown Sugar Lip Scrub.
As you know, coconut oil is solid at room temperature. (At least, at room temperature here in London! If you live in a warm climate, you may get different results. In that case, simply save the exfoliating lip in the fridge!)
Love coconut? Use coconut oil organic cold pressed so keep that beautiful coconutty fragrance.
Hate coconut? Use coconut oil ‘deodorized’, which has no smell! (Or simply substitute a different oil, and has a liquidy scrub -. That is, olive oil or sunflower oil)
Sugar is a gentle exfoliant. I used brown sugar in this recipe, but could also use white sugar (or any type of edible sugar at hand.)
This recipe is completely edible, which is a good thing, as it goes in your mouth!
