Have you ever exfoliated your lips? Well, ladies (and gents), today is the day to raid the kitchen for a simple DIY sugar lip scrub. In under 5 minutes you can exfoliate dry skin and enjoy soft, kissable lips all day.
Honey Sugar Lip Scrub
- 2 teaspoons sugar (you can use pretty much any sugar: raw sugar, brown sugar, regular sugar)
- 1 teaspoon honey
- 1 teaspoon almond oil
- Optional: add a dash of cinnamon or cayenne if you want to naturally ‘plump’ your lips
Mix everything together in a small bowl until you have a paste. Apply to lips with fingertips and massage into your lips to gently slough off dry, dead skin cells. You’ll be tempted to eat the mixture – it tastes pretty darn good! Rinse with warm water and follow with lip balm. Keep any extra in a small container.
