Exfoliation is a great beauty trick to get gorgeous, smooth and radiant skin. Be it your face, body or lips, exfoliation is a must if you want to look your best all the time. A good beauty regimen always includes exfoliation or scrubbing. This is a great way to pamper your skin and allow it to breath. And yes, your lips need to breathe too!
You can exfoliate your lips easily with lip scrubs readily available in the market. But, when one can easily make it at home with organic and natural ingredients, why should you waste your money? So, today’s DIY is all about getting smooth and soft lips with some simple kitchen and pantry ingredients. What are you waiting for? Go hunt your kitchen for the ingredients to get rid of those unflattering dead skin layers to reveal baby-like soft lips!
Here is a list of products, which are required to prepare the ginger lip scrub exfoliating scrub:
- A medium sized tablespoon of white or brown sugar.
- A teaspoon of organic honey. You can replace honey with a teaspoon of vanilla or chocolate essence, if you don’t like the sweetness of honey on your lips.
- A small container or jar (if you would like to store the mixture).
- A small piece of fresh ginger.
How To Prepare The Natural Ginger Lip Scrub?
Follow the steps to exfoliate your lips by preparing the natural ginger lip scrub. Read the steps to offer yourself the baby-like soft lips:
Take a tablespoon of white or brown sugar in a clean bowl. You can increase the quantity depending on how much scrub you want to make. Remember that the above mixture will last for 3 to 4 uses. As it is simple to make, I always like to make the homemade natural ginger lip scrub for immediate use. I recommend you to use a clean and well sanitized storage container, if you are planning to make a larger quantity of the lip scrub for storage.
Wash the ginger piece in plain water and peel off the outer layer. Then, cut the ginger into small pieces with a clean knife. Ginger is an amazing natural skin exfoliater. The tingling and irritating properties in ginger irritate the skin mildly, increasing the blood supply to the lips. Once, the blood gushes to your lip area, it instantly makes your lips appear pouty and fuller. So, the added benefit of using this ginger lip scrub recipe is that, it will exfoliate as well as provide you fuller lips.
Now, add the ginger pieces to the sugar bowl and add about a teaspoon of honey to the mixture. Then, start mixing all your ingredients to get all the natural goodness. You can right away start applying the ginger lip scrub mixture to your lips.
The sugar granules will soften up as soon as the honey is added and mixed. Honey also reduces the zingy ginger fragrance as well as moisturizes your lips. Gently pat the lip scrub all over your lips.
You can use an old toothbrush, clean mascara wand or just your fingers for gently scrubbing your lips. Use soft, small, circular motions to exfoliate your lips. Do not put too much pressure as it might hurt your lips and also result in bleeding. Be gentle and scrub for 25 to 30 seconds to get rid of all the dryness and chapped dead skin layers from your lips. Then, use damp warm towel or a tissue paper to wipe off the lip scrub from your lips and you are done! You will have baby-like lips with no signs of flakiness!
I recommend using ginger lip scrub once in a week to exfoliate lips for soft and plumper pout. So, save your money for something you have always wanted, instead of buying a lip scrub! With this home made lip scrub, you will not even want to consider a store bought lip scrub again. Don’t believe me? Try it to believe!
