Lip Lovin' Scrub

Towards the beginning of my blog I posted a lip scrub recipe (Luxurious Lip Scrub) which proved to be very popular. I'm back today with another lip scrub recipe and I hope you enjoy it just as much as the last! This scrub has the same basic base as the last but has powdered milk which aids in exfoliation due to the lactic acid it contains. Oatmeal is the final ingredient and is a gentle yet effective sloughing agent. After using this scrub your lips will feel healthy and look super soft and supple.
 What you need:
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon of honey
½ tablespoon of powdered milk
1 tablespoon of oatmeal

Mix all of the ingredients together into a bowl and apply to lips using your fingers. Massage the mixture on to your lips for at least 30 seconds and let it sit for a couple of minutes. This mixture is highly moisturizing while also exfoliating. Leaving this on your lips after massaging will ensure that your lips drink in extra moisture. Rinse off and apply a rich lip balm to lock in your new found hydration.
