A pout is only attractive when it’s not flaky, and what do you do to keep your lips smooth 24x7? You use an olive oil lip scrub, where you mix a teaspoon (or less!) of brown or white sugar and keep it in a bowl with olive oil until the sugar granules melt away. Use it twice a week, but make sure you scrub lightly.
2. Papaya and Honey Face Mask

This one is an old school scrub that was used even by our nanis and dadis. To make this, pop some atta, besan, a teaspoon of sarso ka tel, a pinch of turmeric and milk until it becomes smooth and has a paste-like consistency. Apply it all over your body and wash it once it’s dried! Doing this twice a week will also help you get rid of the tan.

To make an oatmeal body scrub, blend the oatmeal to turn it into powder, add some yoghurt and honey & scrub it on! But whenever you use a scrub, remember to not scrub it harshly as it can leave microtears in your skin. Be light, and use this scrub once or twice a week, as per your needs!
