Homemade Lip Scrub

 Since im new to wearing lipstick, I never noticed how chapped my lips are. So before I can wear my new favorite lippie its time for a scrub. There's no way I will pay $20 + for a lip scrub when I can make my own! This is a super easy scrub, luckily I already had all the ingredients at home.

Heres what you need:

1 tsp

In a small cup, heat 1tsp of natural honey in the microwave for 4-5 seconds

-Honey has healing and hydrating properties which will result in soft lips.

Stir in 1 tsp of healthy edible oil (olive oil, sweet almond oil, or sunflower oil)

-Oil will make a think protective barrier

Add 2 tsp of white sugar

-Creates a gentle exfoliant to remove dead skin

Add 1-2 drops of an essential oil such as peppermint, spearmint, lemon, or lime. I used a combo of peppermint and lemon.

Finished product! Put some on your finger and use a gentle circular motion

Wipe off with water or damp cotton ball then apply some lip balm. I used Carmex.

                                         Enjoy!! xoxo
