I’m currently in my comfy bed after two days with a terrible back pain. Don’t worry, it’s just that TOM (if you don’t know this…you’re probably a dude). But, I really wanted to share one of the simplest ways to buffer your lips and remove all the dead skin. And since it’s now Spring, it’s time to prep your lips for all the pink gloss!
As you all know, I hate spending on unnecessary products when I can just use every day products for the same result! I’ve found a few ways to remove dead skin from my lips all while also conditioning them as well. I’ll go ahead and show you two ways I make this happen and they are all products you can find in your house!
My favorite way and probably the easiest would be using a toothbrush. It sounds silly, right? But your toothbrush is actually rough enough to remove the dead skin without causing any damage. So, how do I do it? Well, all you have to do is just graze your finger in some unrefined coconut oil which can be bought at most general and grocery stores. Rub the oil on your lips as you would with a lip butter or balm. Once your lips are thinly covered, go ahead with your toothbrush and brush your lips in a small, circular motion. It feels weird and rough the first time, but you get used to it after a few tries. After about a minute or so, your lips should feel smooth and soft and ready for some gloss!
My second and last trick is just a simple mix of two products that I am SURE are to be found in your cabinets! All you need is a teaspoon of olive oil and half a teaspoon of raw sugar. Mix it up and rub it on! This is an incredibly natural and pure scrub, so even if you end up digesting it, there shouldn’t be an issue. You can also switch out the olive oil for melted coconut oil for extra conditioning or honey for an antiseptic if you’re lips do have some cuts or abrasions. After application, leave the scrub on for a couple minutes while rubbing your lips together or (with clean hands) buffer by moving your finger in small, circular motions as above. You’re lips are going to feel so amazing and clean once you rinse the sugar off.
Well, there you have it! Both tricks I have used and I promise, I did not have any allergic reactions though do be sure that your products are as far from processed as possible for the best results. I do you hope you enjoyed this post and found it helpful! I will definitely try to get a post done tomorrow, but like I said above…my back is in a lot of pain thanks to TOM, so I don’t want to make any promises. BUT I WILL TRY because I love you guys so so much. 🙂
