After browsing a bit on YouTube’s Howto & Style videos (one of my favourite past times), I came across one that was reviewing Victoria Secret’s FX Smooth Scrub and Lip Balm. It’s both a scrub and lip balm combined into a container for $14.
I thought to myself, $14 is a lot for such a little container. There must be a cheaper alternative.
If you’re looking for the perfect S trio – sexy, soft spring lips. Look no further, the home remedy is here!
What you need is:
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- a few drops of olive oil.
Mix the honey and baking soda together until it becomes a paste and use that as your lip scrub. Rubbing the mixture on your lips, exfoliating and letting the dead skin on your lips lift off.
After that, wash your lips with water and use the olive oil as a lip balm, softening and letting your lips absorb the moisturizing properties in the olive oil.
The second alternative is lipbrushing.
I personally do this myself every night post-brushing my teeth. Gently swipe the bristles over your lips as if you were brushing your teeth, but gently. After awhile, you’ll notice your lips become more red and also feel cleaner and naturally shinier. You can see and feel the difference of brushing away the dead skin on your lips.
After you’ve brushed, wash your lips with water and use vaseline as a lip balm. It’ll keep those lips moisturized while you sleep.
