Remember how I said my lips were painfully windburned and chapped from that four-hour marathon kayaking mis-adventure on Lake Tahoe a little over a week ago? Well, I made a homemade sugar and olive oil lip scrub for them last weekend, and yay! — now they’re almost back to normal.
I mixed a little olive oil and some granulated sugar into a thick paste. (I didn’t really pay attention to how much I used of each. I pretty much just eyeballed it.) Then I rubbed that on my lips.
Sometimes when I do this I use an old toothbrush to buff the paste on my lips like an exfoliator.
But this time I just used my fingers…
It works great! And it’s super cheap, too. Plus, if you want to, you can lick the leftovers off your lips instead of rinsing, LOL!
I’m just sayin… 🙂
How about you? What was the last DIY or homemade hair, makeup or beauty product you made and used? (I would not turn down any recipes if you have them.)
