I was having dry and flaky lip that day and was feeling so annoyed by it because my lipstick just didn't apply well! And then I remember my DIY lip scrub. LOL. Damn, why didn't i think of that?! The dry flaky lips has been bothering me for quite some time. Usually i would scrub my lips once every two weeks and then i just totally forgot about the whole thing. Dead skins were accumulating and moisturiser didn't help.
So today i'm going to show you guys a 1 MIN DIY LIP SCRUB. You only need two ingredients:
Aloe Vera Gel
You can sub Aloe Vera Gel with anything moisturising like coconut oil or vaseline. But i didn't have those ingredients so i use Aloe Vera Gel (99% pure).
Of course, u need a small bowl or just anything that you can pour the ingredients in. And a spoon.
1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Brown Sugar
Depending on how much friction u want on your lips, u add the according amount of brown sugar. The sugar is use to scrub the dead skins off.
Then just add a TINY bit of aloe vera gel.
If you add too much, there won't be scrubbing effect.
You should get a consistency like this, with visible brown sugar bits in it. If it is too liquid-y, u can add more brown sugar! Its really up to you!
Apply this on your lip and scrub for a minute or so. Then rinse off and apply lip balm. Done! You have silky smooth lips now!
