No lipstick can allow your lips the perfect pout if your they’re chapped and dry.
Out of all the body parts, the lips often bear the tag of being the most neglected! But it doesn’t necessarily have to be so.
Your lips are, in fact, one of the most sensitive parts of your body. Obviously, they need the extra care and pampering, and why not!
Exfoliating your lips is a must, and what better way than creating your very own DIY lip scrub?
The best part, you ask? The scrub smells heavenly!
All you need to do is to take a quick glance through this easy recipe on how to make your own lip-smacking lip scrub with just 3 easy-to-source ingredients.
What you will need:
- 1 tbsp Cocoa Powder
- ½ cup of brown Sugar
- A cutesy jar
Why this scrub?
Cocoa powder and sugar work great together as exfoliating agents. Their fine granules help in removing all the dry and dead skin cells from your lips, making them soft and baby pink coloured. The scrub also gives a subtle plumpness to your lips, for that perfect pout.
Vaseline is used for binding the ingredients together. Also, it moisturizes your lips, keeping them well hydrated.
If you have any pigmentation, this scrub will take care of that as well.
- Grind the sugar into a very fine powdered form. Do this only for about two-thirds of the quantity of sugar.
- Mix all the sugar with cocoa powder until every lump is broken down.
- Add 2 tbsps of Vaseline and mix until all the ingredients are fully blended together.
- Next, put the mixture in a cutesy jar, and voila! You have your very own DIY Cocoa Lip Scrub ready to use!
