Testing DIY Beauty Treatments part 1:Teeth and lips

Lastly on Pinterest I've been pinning all kinds of DIY projects and beauty treatments I would like to try but I never have a time for them. Now when I'm on my summer vacation decided to grasp the nettle and start a new ''Testing DIY Beauty Treatments''-serie, which is actually my excuse for pampering myself. The treatments I choose and chose are going to be very simple and the ingredients should be found in everyone's kitchen. 
In this first part I tested two recipes: Lip scrub made of brown sugar, olive oil and honey and a teeth whitener made of baking soda and lemon juice.

Lip scrub              

2 tsp of honey          
2 tsp of olive oil       
2 tsp of brown sugar

Mix all the ingredients, apply on your lips and scrub gently. Rinse off with warm water.

Did it work? Yes I think. After scrubbing my lips were as soft as I expected. With this recipe you got too much scrub just for your lips but it works great as a hand scrub too.

Teeth whitener

1 tsp of baking soda
lemon juice

Mix baking soda and lemon juice into a paste. Brush the paste onto your teeth with a toothbrush, then leave it there for a minute, then brush off.

Did it work? I didn't notice any big changes. Maybe I should do this once in a week and then compare results after a month or two. 

If you have some good DIY beauty treatment recipes please let me know and leave a comment down below.
