I’m going to show you a self-care routine for softer, pinker lips.

We’ll start by making a lip scrub that will clean your lips and remove any dead skin.

Then, we’re going to make a mixture for you to keep on your lips overnight that will revitalize your lips and give them gorgeous color.

Disclaimer: When applied to the skin, turmeric can sometimes cause temporary staining, so please proceed with caution! You may wish to use slightly less turmeric than the recipe recommends.

    We often neglect our lips. This looks to be a great way to care for them. I would never use Vaseline on myself as it is a petroleum product. Try unpetroleum jelly it is made for castor oil and ever so healthy!
