9 Quick Beauty Treatments to Do on Your Lunch Break


7. Lip Scrub

There are many great lip enhancing products on the market. You can slough away those flaky lips in ten minutes by applying a sugar-based lip scrub that soothes and nourishes your lips.

Not only will your lips be softer, smoother, and moisture-rich, they’ll even be more firm for applying your lip color. This is an easy treatment you can perform on your lunch break quite often for great effect.

If you have the time you can also make your own DIY lip scrubs using ingredients like sugar, honey, and olive oil. Remember, that lip skin is the thinnest on your whole body, so be careful with any exfoliants, you don’t want to damage you skin.

Here’s one lovely recipe I use mostly in winter when my lips are sensitive and dry more than usual. You will need 1 tablespoon of white or brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of jojoba or olive oil and 1 tablespoon of honey.

I prefer grated white sugar since it gives less traumatic substance. Mix everything to the paste condition, and apply some amount to your lips using your forefinger. Rub the mixture gently for about 3 minutes and rinse away. Afterward, use nourishing lip balm to moisten the skin. 2 times a week will be enough to keep you lips soft and supple!
