Lip Scrub

Delicious lip scrub recipe using food ingredients!

Auckland Nutritionist Larissa Beeby’s Lip Scrub

If you are like me, as soon as the Autumn weather kicks in my skin goes super dry.  Yes this means lovely cracked knuckles, extra dry feet and flakey lips.  Lovely huh.  So here is my favourite exfoliating scrub that I use on my lips. Plus it is hydrating and secretly, it taste amazing.

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 drops peppermint essence

Method

Mix all the ingredients together in a jar.  Use around a pea sized amount and gently apply to the lips (your ring finger is the best as its the softest).  Seal jar.  You could match a larger batch of this as it will last for months.

My favourite homemade beauty treatments for summer!

At times summer can take its toll on our hair, skin and nails.   The festive period often means a little over indulging that doesn’t do our body many favours (other than enjoyment and celebration of course!), then paired with sun, sand and chlorinated pool water over the holidays can often leave us looking more crocodile than beach babe!

So here is my favourite body scrub that will exfoliate, moisture and leave you smelling delicious.

  • 1/3 cup ground coffee
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2-3 drops peppermint essential oil

Mix all the ingredients together into a glass jar.  To use: jump into the shower as this works best on a wet body, turn the shower off while exfoliate, then turn the water back on to rinse!
