The Natural Lip Scrub

Got Dry, Chapped or Peeling Lips? Here’s a great Homemade Sugar Scrub recipe that would work on your lips! This nourishing natural lip scrub recipe contains ingredients which you can quite likely find in your kitchen! For a nice smelling lip balm, you could add in your favourite essential oils (optional). Why exfoliate your lips? It’s important to exfoliate your lips so that it will help to make the lipstick go on with a nice smooth and even texture. Exfoliating the top layer of the skin at least once a week can help to expose a new soft surface and hydrate the lips at the same time. Exfoliating can also help especially when we work and sleep in air-conditioned rooms where the skins tend to become drier when it’s cold. What are the Ingredients you’ll need?  1 tsp honey (Organic honey will be good to make this recipe even more natural)1 tsp oil (Olive preferred)2 tsp white or brown sugar Mix the honey, sugar and oil well with a wooden spoon to create a fine paste. Drop in the essential oil for added fragrance and healing properties. What are the directions for usage? With clean hands, pat the paste onto your lips and the skin around it and allow it to set for a few minutes. Gently massage in circular motions to remove dead skin cells before rinsing with lukewarm water. Pat dry with a clean towel. Apply a thin layer of olive oil or moisturizing lip balm. You could do this 1-2 times weekly for healthy looking lips! Keep in a small container and store in fridge for longer shelf life. Be careful not to make too much at one go as this recipe is all natural and contains no preservatives. However if you have made extra, then share the DIY goodies with your best gal pals!...

He had finished taking his pre-wedding photos and showed me his stack (IT”S REALLY ONE THICK STACK) of like 500 over photos that he has taken in a day in Singapore. But of cos, there was a top-up fee of $1,000 to his wedding package for that. The quality of takes for indoor and outdoor photography was good I must say! Then anyway, he and his fiancee wanted to take some casual wedding shoots and they are agreeable to be my makeup guinea pigs!!! Haha!!! ^___^ We went shopping at Jurong Point for false eyelashes, mascara, pins, hairsprays etc for the makeover.
