My skin is really feeling the change in weather and this dry Colorado autumn air is sucking all the moisture from my skin! My face gets dull and my lips get flaky. And what's the best way to fight dullness and flakiness? Exfoliation! But holy cow, exfoliators and scrubs can be expensive so that's why I'm a fan of DIY beauty.
Yesterday I made my own lip scrub and I'm going to show you what I did and what I used.
|vitamin e oil|
|shea butter before|
|and after heating|
|all of the oils combined|
|scrub it in|

The only thing I don't like about the scrub that I made is the smell...while shea butter is extremely nourishing, I think it stinks. Next time I would love to add a yummy smelling essential oil (peppermint!) or even use coconut oil instead of shea butter. If you don't have these ingredients just use regular granulated sugar and olive oil...or any good-for-you oil!
