Tips For Luscious Lips - Part 4

Summer in northern New England has been a real scorcher lately! Thank goodness for the cool evening fog that rolls in off the ocean. That mist really soothes my garden plants and gives the veggie leaves and flowers a good drink at night. This time of year, or even in the less humid fall and winter seasons, my lips can become rough and dry. The natural lip care recipe I'm going to share with you today is very, very simple to make using just one ingredient from your kitchen cupboard: baking soda. Won't you please give it a try? I'm sure your lips will be most grateful for the pampering! Rough Lip Scuff This simple, lip-scuffing method quickly loosens flaky, dead skin, leaving lips smoother, softer, and healthier-looking. The brushing action stimulates circulation and actually causes the lip tissue to plump temporarily, improving the look of your sultry pout! Recommended for: everyone, especially those who have chapped, rough, and weather-beaten lips Use: twice per week Prep Time: mere seconds Blending Tools: toothbrush Store In: do not store; mix as needed Yield: 1 treatment Ingredients: - 1/2 teaspoon baking soda - Premoistened toothbrush Directions: Place baking soda into the palm of one hand and dip damp toothbrush bristles into the soda. Gently brush premoistened lips back and forth for approximately 20 seconds. Be careful not to brush too hard to avoid causing further irritation. Rinse.
