Have you been following me on Instagram? If yes, only then would you know how obsessed I am when it comes to lip scrubs and masks – DIY one’s to be more precise . Usually people prefer lip scrubs during the winter or when they have an event and want their lips to look great and not chapped or dry. However, I love using lip masks and scrubs every 2 times a week at least because I can’t stand the feeling of chapped lips. for some reason, it makes me feel extremely dehydrated . With that being said, let’s get on with the scrub shall we?
Lip scrubs are the most fun part of DIY since you can easily alter and mix up different ingredients to make your own unique variety of lip scrub. This scrub is all about raspberries! raspberries are power packed with antioxidants and vitamin c .
For this scrub, you need :
* 4-5 raspberries
* 4 tablespoons sugar
* 1 tablespoon honey
Take the raspberries in a bowl and mash them using a fork. If it feels lumpy, no problem! it’s a scrub after all .Next, add the sugar and mix well followed by honey. Make sure to store it in a small airtight jar and keep refrigerated because we have not added any preservatives and berries are the most perishable. This mask can be stored for about a week in the fridge!
How to use the scrub ?
• Take a wash cloth and damped your lips first
• Take a small amount of the scrub on your finger tips and gently scrub your lips.
• Let the scrub sit on the lips for a couple of minutes.
• Take a tissue or washcloth and wipe off the scrub making sure to give a final exfoliated touch
• Rinse with water and top it off with a good lip balm or almond oil
You will notice your lips will fell alot softer and plump. Sugar is a natural gentle exfoliator so it makes it perfect for a scrub. honey is key moisturizing ingredient, it will keep your lips looking soft and supple yet hydrated and moisturized .The star of the scrub- raspberries are also excellent source of hydration and also, will add a tint of pinky raspberry stain on your lips .
