plump and repair cinnamon and sugar lip scrub
i love making this scrub at least once or twice a week, especially during the dry winter months. cinnamon is meant to plump the lips by enhancing blood flow, giving them a fuller and more rosie appearance (it's also where the tingly feeling comes from). i like to add a few drops of peppermint essential oil for that extra fresh, clean feeling. the honey repairs and moisturizes while the diatomaceous earth is rich in collagen producing, skin regenerating silica.
i'll normally do this scrub before bed. i'll then lather my lips in homeoplasmine and wake up with the smoothest lips ever. this scrub is also really good to do before wearing lipstick, especially matte which is super drying.
measurements are a rough guide, feel free to just eyeball until you reach your desired consistency :)
- 1 tsp organic oil of choice (grapeseed, olive, coconut, almond)
- 2 tbsp organic sugar of choice (white, raw, brown)
- 1 tsp manuka or raw organic honey
- 1/2 tsp organic cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp diatomaceous earth (optional)
- 4 drops of peppermint essential oil (optional)
mix all ingredients together until you get the right consistency then scrub lips for about 30 seconds. wash the area clean and moisturise with your favourite lip balm :) xx
