Homemade Beauty Products
Based on the feedback I received from all of you lovely readers, I will be putting together more posts on making homemade beauty products (all we will be tried and tested by me first). If I can make these, than anyone can…believe me!
When I completed my research, I was surprised how easy most homemade beauty products are to make. I understand though that no one wants to spend their precious time making them to find that they do not work…So I will do it and let you all know how they turn out.
I went small for my first attempt; however it is a really important one that can be forgotten at times.
How to Make Your Own Homemade Lip Scrub
If you are looking for the gorgeous matte lip, than you need to use a lip scrub at least twice a week. There are plenty on the market but it is so easy to make your own, just follow these easy steps:
- Put a teaspoon of castor sugar or brown sugar (depends on how you want it to look) in a bowl and add half a teaspoon of olive oil and mix. The mixture should not be liquid it should be more the texture of sugar.
- Next add a dribble of honey; this is just to bind the mixture of oil and sugar together.
- If you wish you can add a drop of flavour such as peppermint, vanilla or lemon extract which can be bought in any health store.
- Add the mixture to a small container and use as required (dispose after 3 months). You can get these containers cheaply in Dealz or Penneys.
I found this amazing and it did the job as well as any product I have bought. It did not take long to make which is important if your pressed for time like myself. My lips were so soft after using but remember to use a lip balm after and if you are going out into the sun use one with an SPF.
I did not take pictures of the steps….easily known I am new to this ha-ha! Next time I promise I will.
