I don’t know about you but there are days that you can tell it’s winter just by looking at my lips. The cold, dry air wreaks havoc on my usually pretty pout, which is how I developed my addiction to lip balms. And while I’ve always been a fan of lip scrubs, I have not been so keen on the price tag associated to these simple beauty items. Luckily, I discovered a way to make my own with ingredients most of us have in our kitchens.
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon honey
1 teaspoon olive oil or petrolium jelly
Mix the brown sugar and honey to form a paste and scrub on your lips for a few minutes (and try to restrain yourself from eating it). You’ll want to do this over the sink because it does tend to flake off. Next rinse off with warm water and immediately swipe a little olive oil or petroleum jelly to lock in the moisture (I like to use Eucerin Aquaphor Healing Ointment). And voilà! Soft kissable lips are yours once again!
