Whats better than soft smooth lips? Pizza…pizza is better. But also soft smooth lips that are plump! This DIY plumping lip scrub will exfoliate your lips for a nice soft feel, and give them a little plumpness all at the same time. Unfortunately like with most plumping lip products, the effect is temporary. But that’s never stopped me before, it’s definitely still nice to get a little extra pout even if its only for a little while.
All it takes for that plumping effect to happen is something to topically stimulate the blood flow to the area…something like cinnamon! And as a matter of fact the ground cinnamon also helps the exfoliating process so its like a double whammy. The recipe is super simple too.
Mix together, apply to lips and scrub gently. I like to store mine in a small empty cosmetics jar and use it several times.
Now you guys know I like it when all the ingredients in a scrub serve a purpose. I don’t like to just toss delicious things together that don’t carry any benefit and call it a day. So if you’re curious honey is a natural humectant (I used a raw variety that’s why it looks more clouded than average honey but both will work) the sugar is the main exfoliant and the cinnamon aids in the exfoliation and causes the plumping effect! I dunno I think that’s pretty cool.
If you want more an an intense plumping effect you can add more cinnamon to the mix, but for me this ratio was jussssst right.
