My lips were feeling dry and lost the soft look. I think it is because of the cold and dry weather. To prevent this and have softer looking lips, I decided to make my own lip scrub. And as in all other homemade beauty products I made, I wanted to play with food. The result was homemade honey and cinnamon lip scrub. And it is amazing.
You probably never seen such effective homemade products. So, in this natural lip scrub recipe, I decided to mix honey and cinnamon. Both of these ingredients are extremely healthy. Also, you can easily use those ingredients in any of your DIY homemade skin care products. Before giving the ultimate homemade honey and cinnamon lip scrub recipe, I want to talk about benefits of honey and cinnamon.
It is known that honey is the natural friend of cut and burns and all those scars. What is more, honey is perfect for balancing out the acidity level of the skin. This means that oily look or dry look of your skin can easily disappear when you use honey in your homemade skin care products. Also, honey can give the desired consistency to homemade lip scrubs and other homemade cosmetic products.
If we look at the benefits of cinnamon, we can easily spot that cinnamon is the natural cure for dry lips. Cinnamon will make your lips look fuller. And this is because cinnamon increase blood circulation. For this reason, you should be careful about using this product in this homemade honey and cinnamon lip scrub recipe or in any other recipes. If you use too much cinnamon, you may irritate your lips or skin.
