Homemade Exfoliating Lip Scrub

Cold Weather is coming...

Along with ashy elbows, and feet that look like they have been walking in a bed of hot coals and flour, some of you will have dry, flaky, cracked, crusty lips.

Well, try this homemade remedy and you will be sure to have soft, moisturized (and kissable) lips!

All you need is..

1tsp granulated sugar
1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp honey (not pictured)
(adjust ingredients to your needs)
Mix ingredients with your finger and scrub on your lips. Continue until your lips feel soft and exfoliated. I suggest doing this step over the sink, just in case it gets messy. Repeat as needed.

Next, cover your lips with a hot wash cloth (careful not too hot!) for a few seconds, then wipe away scrub. 

And that's it! Your lips should feel soft, plump & juicy! It makes my lips look naturally more pink & the olive oil adds a bit of shine...and it not only feels good, it tastes good too!!

Now that you're done, add your favorite lip balm, lip gloss, lipstick, or whatever, and don't be caught this year with the crusties! 

This small recipe makes quite a bit, so you can share it with a friend, or store it for later use. I wouldn't suggest keeping this mixture for more than a day or two though. I usually make more every 2 or 3 days and store it in this cute little dish...

NOTE: There is no product on my lips in "after" pic. I licked them right before I snapped the pic because there was sugar still on them!)

Thanks for reading!!
