What is the cause of dry, flakey lips?
Our lips contain no oil glands. So when they're not properly taken care of they easily chap and flake.
So why is this mixture so effective?
That's because it contains olive oil and olive oil is well known for
it's moisturizing properties. This is because olive oil's fat composition is very similar to that of human skin, it rarely causes allergic reactions. In addition, it's absorbed quickly and helps lock in moisture in the skin.
The brown sugar in the mixture helps scrub away all the dead skin while the honey
cleanses the face, removes bacteria and locks in moisture.
Give this remedy a go, you will not be dissapointed :D
