If you’re experiencing dry, chapped lips, try this super easy recipe to make your very own DIY lip scrub. Using simple kitchen ingredients like sugar and honey, your lips may stop chapping, plus your lipstick will go on smoother and last longer.
During the cold winter months, my lips are always dry and chapped. No amount of lip balm could provide relief. Then I recently started to exfoliate my lips twice a week and what a difference it’s made! My exfoliated lips are able to absorb the moisture from the lip balm so much better than before. No more dead skin cells to get between my lips and they have their much needed moisture! The best part is that I was able to make an effective lip scrub using ingredients already in my kitchen.
What You'll Need:
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 tablespoon of honey
½ teaspoon of olive oil
½ teaspoon of un-petroleum jelly (it’s more sustainable!)
1 spoon to mix
1 small container
Mix the honey and sugar. Add the jelly and mix well. Add olive oil and mix well. Pour into small container to store. Each batch should be good for one week.
How To Use:
Take a dime size amount of scrub and rub gently onto dry lips. Gently rub until some of the sugar has dissolved. Rinse well with warm water. Apply lip balm as necessary. Use twice a week and your lips should be silky soft.
