We need to take good care of the lips because the Lips are one of the most sensitive areas of our body and can be easily affected by the weather. During winters and harmattan (a season in the West African) when the air is drier, the lips losses moisture making them cracked and rough. It is very vital that you keep them moisturized and exfoliated all through the year and not just during the winter or harmattan.
Here are some of the simple DIY lip scrubs:
Pomegranate And Malai Scrub
crush or grind some pomegranate seeds, add malai to it, then mix it.
Gradually scrub your lips with the mixture and allow to stay for 15-20 minutes and then wipe off with a dry cloth or water. Both pomegranate seeds and malai are naturally hydrating ad provide moisture in the lips.
Lemon And Sugar Scrub
Sugar mixed with lemon can aid your lips to return their natural pink color. Lemon is a superb natural skin bleaching and brightening agent. Lemon is great for dark lips that were caused by smoking, pigmentation, coffee and so on.
Honey And Sugar Scrub:
Honey contains lots of minerals and vitamins which includes niacin B6, and zinc which makes it moisturizing. All you need to do is mix 1 tsp of raw honey with 1 tbsp of sugar. Put your lips together and scrub the mixture on your lips and let it work its magic for about 10 minutes before you wipe your lips with a cloth soaked in lukewarm water. The scrub will help exfoliate the lip and bring out fresh skin.
Aloe vera And Ubtan Scrub:
Aloe vera is a superb natural moisturizer. Just mix the aloe vera gel with ubtan and srub your lips with it. Doing this frequently will help your lips become smooth and soft.
