My DIY Lipscrub!!


Hello Guys!! Welcome back to my page. So as you have probably guessed by the title of this post, I’ve decided to switch things up a bit with the type of things I will be posting. I just got a bit bored with only posting hair related stuff and I thought well I quite enjoy doing a lot of DIYs so I thought why not share it all with you guys?!

Here in London, it is winter and like super, super cold. It is so inconvenient and just gets in the way of everything! One of the cons of winter is that your lips start to get indecent and just not pleasant to look at due to the harsh weather. This is what made me think that it was time for me to transform my dry, chapped, crusty lips into beautiful, soft, supple and kissable ones! If you want to find out how I managed this, read on>>
You are going to need something similar to the above ingredients so a container to make your mixture in; sugar to act as the actual scrub and exofoliant; honey for softness and moisture; coconut oil (or any other oil of choice) to nourish, penetrate and heal the lips; and finally your favourite lip balm (I usually use chapstick, nivea, baby lips or vaseline- in this case the chapstick for the gorgeous pinky coloring). 

1) Start off with adding your sugar into your container, there isn't really a specific measurement but just do whatever you prefer or just what looks right to you. Next you add in the honey and start mixing with a spoon. Now I don't particularly use a lot off  the honey but that's just a personal preference. Afterwards add in about half a tablespoon of  your oil and finally the lip balm. Mix it all up and add more sugar for a grainier mix or add more honey for a stickier, creamier mix. 

2) Finally you put your mixture into small containers (like the one of the right) and  place it in the fridge then you are all set! 

I used this mixture only 3 times in one week and I got fab results! The great thing about this is that it is edible so I suppose it's a win win; luxious lips with a yummy mix. You can never go wrong! So I hope you guys enjoyed this post and you would like me to post more fun DIYs like this in the future. I would love to know in the comments down below. Thanks guys, ILYSM xxxx
