DIY: I’ve been talking a lot about the weather and how much we need to protect our skin and treat it ever so dearly, especially our lips. There’s nothing more harsh on our face in the winter, than chapped lips. And while moisturizing our lips helps to protect it, we also need to remove dead skin as well, which means lightly exfoliating them ever so often. Here’s a quick recipe that I’ve been using this winter, it features Lemon and Turmeric (guessing the title gave it away?) Lemon juice helps to brighten dark spots and creases and also assists in removing dead skin, while Turmeric helps to to remove any bacteria and gives smooth lips. DIY : You’ve probably got all these ingredients in your kitchen, so here’s the recipe and happy smooth and moisturized lips.
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 tablespoon of dark brown sugar (regular sugar works just as well)
1/2 inch of turmeric chopped or grated
1/2 teaspoon of coconut oil
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and be sure to remove all lip balms and/or lip stick. Scrub your lips with mixture and apply coconut oil to moisturize.
Happy soft and non-chapped lips!
