High-quality Tuscan olive oil producer Bellucci Premium comments on an article that discusses remedies for chapped lips, including a do-it-yourself lip scrub made with olive oil.
On December 16th, Bustle published an article titled “Cure Your Painful Chapped Lips With These 5 No-Brainer Tips” that outlines some easy ways to cure chapped lips. One potential reason for chapped lips is an allergic reaction to an ingredient found in some types of toothpaste. The article recommends switching over to an all-natural alternative. Sliced cucumbers are also suggested. Place cucumbers on the mouth for five minutes for softer lips. The article also suggests staying away from spicy and salty food because they can be attributed to chapped lips.
The article gives a recipe for a simple lip scrub that is used to remove dead, chapped skin and reveal the newer, softer skin underneath. This scrub is made by combining one teaspoon of olive oil with a tablespoon of brown sugar and mixing until it makes a paste. Then, apply the mixture onto your lips and scrub off the dead skin with your fingertips. You can either rinse or lick off the mixture. The article also suggests adding honey and orange or lemon zest for a more effective scrub.
Natalie Sexenian, the marketing manager for high-quality Tuscan olive oil producer Bellucci Premium, says, “Olive oil has terrific beauty benefits. It is full of fatty acids and vitamin E that hydrate and feed the skin.” She suggests using organic olive oil and organic brown sugar for a truly all-natural solution.
Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
