Since the weather is a lot crazier now that we have typhoons coming (more raining), my lips are definitely at their worst. I’ve noticed that my lips are twice as dry and flaky these past few weeks. That’s why I’ve been religiously trying out tips […]
There are no words how ecstatic I am about writing this. It’s been six months since I have decided to take blogging seriously and so far, things are going great. And part of the going great is getting the honour to be recognized and nominated […]
The weather has been a pain these couple of days. It actually feels like summer again with how hot it is and then some other days it rains. And I’ve really noticed that it’s not only causing my allergic rhinitis to act up again but also making my lips so dry and flaky. I just put more moisture on my lips during this kind of weather but unfortunately, it’s not working. Dry, flaky lips are one of the things that annoy me the most. Not only does it prevent me from using any lip products but it actually hurts. So, I’ve decided to raid the kitchen and whip me up a DIY sugar lip scrub with honey and cinnamon.
The best part of all of this DIY is that all the ingredients are natural and available in everyone’s household. So, follow this simple guide to create your own lip scrub.
What You Need:
1 tablespoon Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Honey
1 teaspoon Coconut Oil
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract (for added flavour)
A bottle or container
Just combine everything together to create a paste. There’s no need to feel pressured in following the measurements. You may adjust the amounts of ingredients as you like to get the perfect consistency you want. After everything is mixed together, just take a small spatula or use your finger and start scrubbing your lips lightly. I recommend to dab a little vaseline on your lips after for added moisture.
This scrub will definitely help exfoliate all the dead skin off your lips. The coconut oil will give your skin added moisture as well as the honey and cinnamon. The honey will not only make your lips plumper but will lock in vitamins too that will help heal wounds. Vanilla extract is optional. It’s not common in some scrub ingredients but you can put a few drops if you want some added flavour (and amazing smell).
I have definitely enjoyed sharing this with you guys and will probably do more DIYs soon. Comment down below some amazing DIYs you want me to try next. I would love to read them.
It was three months ago when I shared my skin care routine for oily skin and the products I was using as recommended by my Dermatologist. The journey was good, slow but good. I have gotten the results I wanted all throughout that treatment. But then […]
I believe it was a year ago when I learned about the Maybelline Fit Me Matte+Poreless foundation. It was that kind of product that I’ve been wanting to try out for so long but couldn’t. It seemed to be, from what I’ve been hearing, a very […]
I recently just emptied the skincare products I use that my Dermatologist gave to me. So, I have decided to explore the market and look for lot better options. I guess this newfound courage to try other products emerged because of how good my skin feels right now. The face toner was the first product that got empty. I wasn’t really in the mood nor do I have time to book an appointment with my doctor just because of a toner. Also, I’ve been wanting to get a different product just to see if I could get faster results.
And so, I went to a Japanese store near our place but not for the purpose of buying a toner. I was actually just going to buy a makeup remover. But, plans changed and I got caught up with all sorts of products that I suddenly got two products in my shopping bag.
I’m pretty sure I’m not the only woman with the experience (wink).
Anyway, I came across this face toner as I was looking for the makeup remover (and maybe something else). What immediately caught my attention was how pretty it looks. I mean, how many face toners have you seen that has real flower petals inside of them? Right? And that it comes in this cute, chubby bottle. I thought to myself, “I have to buy it.”
So, when I learned that it’s a Rose water facial toner I got excited. I’ve always wanted to try Rose water. I mean, Rose water has been known for decades after decades for being one of the best natural beauty products in the world. Cleopatra had this in her beauty regime.
Rose water actually has tons of benefits and it is good for all skin types. It has astringent properties that help tone and clean pores. It also controls excess oils in the face (Yay for me), reduces skin problems like acne, redness, scars, wrinkles and fine lines, and it has antioxidant properties that help strengthen our skin cells. But most importantly, it is perfect for hydrating and moisturizing the skin.
You can actually make your own Rose water but if you’re like me who have limited to no access to roses (or any flowers), this one is a good bargain. It didn’t even make much of a dent in my pocket since it only cost 99 pesos or two bucks. But make sure if you’re on a hunt for Rose water, it is 100% pure.
I’ve been really loving it. I didn’t get any skin irritation or whatsoever. My skin actually feels softer, more hydrated and no sign of oiliness since it is water. I am also thinking of putting a few drops in my moisturizer. Also, the scent really helps a lot. I’ve read that it can really relax your mind and body.
I will definitely be using it more and maybe stick to it for a few months or so. But I’ll be sure to try to make my own soon.
