Just got my nails pampered today 🙂 I was a bit hesitant to choose a coral pink nail polish because it tends to make my skin look darker or grayish. But this particular shade shade from OPI totally matches my morena skin. The picture above is a bit washed out (sorry about that) but I think the reason why this particular pink shade works is that because it has a bit of an orange undertone to it.

Caring for your lips is as important as caring for your skin. That’s why I decided to make a Homemade Lip Scrub that will help exfoliate, hydrate and moisturize the lips to make it nice and smooth and a bit plump.
The recipe that I used for this DIY Lip Scrub is based on Michelle Phan’s tutorial for Kissable Lips. It’s really easy to make because the ingredients can be found in your kitchen. Plus it could be a great gift idea 🙂
So here are the ingredients and materials you will need:
1. 1 to 2 tablespoons of honey
2. 1 teaspoon of brown or raw sugar
3. a tiny scoop of petroleum jelly
4. a small container with cover
5. a plastic stirrer
In a small container, add in the sugar, honey and petroleum jelly. Then mix everything together using a clean plastic stirrer.
To use your homemade lip scrub, it is best to apply this after you’ve washed and toweled dry your face. Apply it on your lips just like any regular lip butter or lip balm. Massage it on your lips to exfoliate and moisturize. Then, wipe away with a clean tissue.
I really like this simple DIY beauty recipe for the lips because it helps remove dead skin (thanks to the sugar), it moisturizes (that’s petroleum jelly in the works), and helps improve blood circulation, promote new tissue growth and locks in moisture (yay for honey!). Also, it’s cheap and doesn’t require you to shed bucks!
