The multitasking DIY lip scrub that gets the job done with 3 ingredients
Time to raid your masala drawer
No matter how many hours you put in mastering that winged eye-liner, chapped lips can ruin your entire makeup look. For some people, it’s like a curse that can only be lifted by a lip scrub.
Some good ‘ol exfoliation will shed the upper layer of dead skin cells that are making your lipstick look as cakey as chalk on a blackboard.
You don’t need to spend big bucks on a cosmetic creation if you’re trying to keep things on a budget right now. Go the old-school India way with a DIY lip scrub.
Some lip care routines can be elaborate, with physical exfoliation, lip masks and an assortment of beauty tools meant to plump them up for that Kylie Jenner look (without the fillers).
For this home remedy, all you’re going to need is 3 ingredients that most of us have in our masala drawer. Dig out some brown sugar for this lip scrub along with almond oil and honey.
Brown sugar is comparatively softer than white sugar, so it’s gentler on your skin. Honey, our favourite home remedy ingredient has antibacterial properties and also functions as a humectant for its natural ability to hold onto water. Almond oil will leave your skin feeling supple and moisturised without a heavy feeling that suffocates your skin.
This lip scrub has pretty much everything you would need for lip care. It’s effective yet kind to your skin, sloughing dead skin without causing damage.
Pro tip: You don’t need to press down hard. Be gentle and use slow, circular motions while applying this scrub.
