For a yummy lip treatment that exfoliates your lips and leaves them kissably soft, try making your own sugar scrub. Combine sugar, lemon juice, and olive oil and store in an airtight jar. Treat yourself to this sweet, sugary agent that removes dry skin and leaves your lips soft and supple. Rub into your lips in a circular motion, let sit for one minute, then wash with a warm cloth. Seal in moisture with a dab of coconut oil and your lips are ready to face the day.
For strong healthy nails, keep them moisturized by rubbing them with moisturizer daily when you moisturize your hands. Avoid the harsh chemicals in nail polish and nail polish removers by buffing your nails instead of applying color. To keep your nails looking strong and healthy, rub in a mixture of coconut oil and honey at bedtime. If you enjoy the benefits of essential oils, add a few drops of lavender oil to this concoction as well.
Dry, cracking heels are not only unsightly, but they are also painful. Soak your feet in a soothing foot bath of warm water, vinegar, and olive oil for about 20 minutes. Allow the vinegar to work as an antiseptic and natural exfoliant, while the olive oil soothes and seals in moisture. Rinse your feet, pat dry with a soft towel, and apply moisturizer. Be sure to apply moisturizer each evening at bedtime. A warm pair of wool socks will help prevent your feet from becoming dry while you sleep.
