During the colder months it can be hard to keep your lips feeling soft. After a while, chapstick just doesn’t cut it. Lips need to be exfoliated as well as moisturized. Taking off the top layer of dead skin leaves the soft skin that is underneath. Your lips will feel better instantly once you exfoliate!
Lush has a lip scrub that is great, but it is definitely expensive! So, I have scoured Pinterest to find some good lip scrub alternatives that are cheaper. Being Pinterest, of course I found a way to DIY a lip scrub. I’ve altered a few recipes to come up with this one and I love the way it turned out! I hope you do too!
You will need:
- 1 tbs. honey
- 2 tbs. sugar
- 1 tsp. olive oil
- 1 tsp. Vaseline
- A few drops of red food coloring
- Container to put scrub in (I found mine on Amazon)
I just mix all these ingredients together. Sometimes I add more sugar if I really want to exfoliate my lips. Then I put them in containers to keep for when I need it. I try to use mine a few times a week and I use it both before and after I use liquid lipstick since that can dry out my lips a lot. Enjoy!
