Wake up with Softer Lips, Hair and Skin…Naturally!
Got a big day tomorrow?
There are a couple tricks I’ve learned that help you to wake up particularly exquisite. First of all, guzzle down as much water as your body can possibly take. That alone will make you glow, but there are a few extra secrets I’ll let you in on, just do these couple things before bed and I promise you will absolutely see a difference when you wake up!
For super soft and full lips mix together 1tbs of sugar ½tbs of honey and a drop of olive oil then exfoliate your lips with this concoction. After about 1 minute of gently rubbing the mixture on your lips, removing all the dead skin, you then need to rinse it off and slather them up with petroleum jelly. I promise your lips will soak up all the moisture and become silky smooth and noticeably fuller in the morning.
Now lets talk about Olive Oil. While traveling in Greece this past summer, I was taught all about using Olive Oil for beauty. I learned that it truly is nature’s best moisturizer. Let me tell you, Olive Oil is the best kept beauty secret. Rub it from the tips of your hair up to the scalp; it makes your hair incredibly shinny and much more manageable, just make sure you wash it out in the morning. Also take the Olive Oil, rub in on your feet up to your ankles and quickly put on socks, while your at it rub it on your knees, elbows and hands, focusing on your cuticles. It also makes an amazing facial moisturizer. After washing your face, while there is still warm water on your skin, rub a little of the olive oil in to your face in a circular motion until it soaks in, then dab your face dry with a towel, and you’re done.
If you happen to breakout, the best thing you can do is rub a lemon slice on your face. The lemon will remove blackheads, and make your skin brighter. Lemons have tons of antioxidants, alpha hydroxy acids and vitamin C. Rub the lemon on the problem areas of your face, it will remove dead skin, promote new skin to grow, remove blackheads, lighten age spots and brown spots and heal pimples! After rubbing the lemon don’t rinse your face, just rub in the olive oil. Your skin will balance itself out with these natural ingredients.
Try these tricks before bed, wake up, and then tell me what you think!
