Whether we are in the middle of cold season or we are down-under enjoying the summer heat, extremes in temperature can lead to chapped and flaky lips. I personally love cosmetics and enjoy buying all kinds of beauty products and playing with them. However, I recently ran out of my Lancombe lip moisturizer and didn’t see an opportunity for heading to the mall for a while. Then I remembered an old recipe that I used to use and that I taught to my daughters years ago:
You will need 1 teaspoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. Mix them together. I use the palm of my hand and will explain later…
Once you have a nice mixture in your hand or a little bowl, apply to your lips. Rub the goeey mixture all over your lips in little circles and voila! You have exfoliated your lips and left them yummy and sticky. Wipe off your lips with a warm, damp flannel or washcloth. And…woohoo!!! Super kissable lips.
Then use your regular lip balm or lip salve, so your lips stay moisturized. You can do this once a week and I highly recommend you do it before Valentine’s Day, so that you stay super kissable.
Oh, and the excess in the palm of your hand? Add a little olive oil, about 1 teaspoonful, from the kitchen cupboard. Then rub the entire conconction into your hands, top and bottom. You’ve just made your own one minute manicure! Rinse off with warm water and apply your favorite hand lotion. Now, you’ve super soft hands all ready to dish out some hugs and maybe even a nice massage.
I hope you enjoy this easy beauty tip, have a fabulous Valentine’s Day and enjoy those kissable lips.
