DIY Lip Scrub/Exfoliator

Hi Everyone!

I have started scheduling my posts because it’s really difficult for me living in South Africa to cater for the majority of my readers living in a different time zone. I just wanted to know if I’m the only one who experiences problems with scheduling posts or? Anyway, it’s Winter here where I live so I thought it would be a great idea to do a DIY.

I suffer from chapped lips during the winter and I always made the mistake of running for the chapstick. For me chapstick actually dries out my lips even more so I found out that exfoliating your lips is actually better than moisturizing it constantly. Hope you enjoy!

YOU WILL NEED:

  • Sugar: 1 tablespoon
  • Honey: 1 tablespoon
  • Olive Oil: 1 teaspoon
  • Vaseline or Shea Butter: 1 teaspoon (Coconut oil and jojoba oil are also alternatives)
  • 1 small container

Combine all the ingredients into the small container and apply to the lips. If your lips are very sensitive or overly cracked then I recommend applying very gently so that you do not cause damage to the area.

Would you like to see more DIY posts? These posts always get a very positive reaction so I am more than willing to do it for you!

I have a review coming tomorrow and a new YouTube video coming on Friday.

30 Day Blogging Challenge – Day 24: Inexpensive & Easy DIY Face Masks

Hi Everyone!

I really wanted to feature a DIY and Beauty segment on the blog and I decided that I would list a few of my favourite face mask recipes. Not only are these so inexpensive to make but most of the ingredients are natural which is great because we don’t use any chemicals on our face. Let’s get started!

LEMON AND HONEY FACE MASK:

Ingredients:

1/2 lemon

2 tablespoons of honey

Directions:

In a bowl, squeeze out the half a lemon and then add 2-3 tablespoons of honey until an even consistency is formed. Apply directly to the face avoiding the eye area and leave on for 15-20 minutes before rinsing off.

OILY SKIN SOLUTION:

Ingredients:

1 avocado

1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice

1 egg white

Directions:

Combine all ingredients to form a paste, apply to skin, obviously avoiding the eye area and wait for it to dry then rinse off with cold water.

HONEY OATMEAL BLAST:

Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons of honey

2 Tablespoons oatmeal

1 Tablespoon of plain yogurt

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together and apply to a clean, dry face avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 5-15 minutes and rinse off.

Hope you enjoyed my easy DIY face masks, I’ll be back tomorrow with another post.
