What do your lips feel like? I'll bet I can guess. The wiles of winter have turned your pout moody, temper - mental and in need of some loving care. So are mine, so here's what we're gonna do. Grab some stuff from the pantry and whip up some Gourmet Lip Scrub that will leave your lips kissable and your sweet tooth satisfied. Oh, and this is easy as 1 -2 - 3, literally, because there's only 3 steps. You can make this blend as posh as you'd like depending on your tastes, I'll add a list of other delish ingredients to use later in this post.
You Need This:
Small Mixing Dish & Spoon Small Jar with Lid
*Use 1 part of each ingredient, about I tsp. each. This is all natural and should last about 6 months. You can get small jars in the travel size section at the beauty supply of drugstore. If you make several you can gift your friends with a jar.
*Mix the sugar and oil together in a small dish.
*Add the Honey and mix until all ingredients are well blended.
*Fill your jar(s) with gourmet lip scrub. Don't worry if you've made too much, this doubles as a body scrub...You're Welcomed.
*I like to elevate my blends, so I used these ingredients:
Organic Coconut Sugar - More like brown sugar than cane sugar, has a lovely caramel, molasses type flavor.
Grapeseed Oil - lightweight & rich in vitamins, minerals, linoleic acid and other essential fatty acids. A great emollient that penetrates the skin easily, great for dry, damaged or mature skin.
Manuka Honey - promotes skin regeneration, repairs cellular damage and lessens scarring. When applied to your skin, manuka will hold in moisture and absorb moisture from the air for a dewy, glowing complexion.
*The ingredients I used can be a little costly, especially the manuka honey, but you can substitute or add any of these:
-Honey, Wildflower Honey or any honey native to your region
-Olive Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Almond Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil
-Raw Sugar, Brown Sugar, Cane Sugar (use the fine grain raw sugar)
-Cocoa Powder or Cacao - rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that nourish skin, and delish.
-Vanilla Bean Paste - used for baked goodies.
*Let me know how your gourmet lip scrub turned out,
