DIY: Lip Scrub

I don’t know about you but the winter is killer on my lips.  They are so dry, it’s disgusting.  They crack.  They peel.  TMI, I know.  But it happens.

My lipstick never looks good on dry lips.  It always looks cakey.  I was on the hunt for a lip scrub or conditioner when I stumbled on this recipe.

What can I say?  It totally ROCKS.  It works, for reals.  I’ve even used it on Angel #1 who has the most chapped lips in the family.  So much so, it looks like she has a third lip.

The stuff is so easy to make with 4 simple ingredients found in your kitchen.  It takes 2 minutes to whip up.  It smells great. It doesn’t burn the lips and it lasts.  The best part, it tastes great.  So if you find yourself hungry while doing a lip scrub, feel free to lick it off.

You will need a measuring spoon, a container or bowl and sugar, coconut oil, olive oil and honey.  It’s that easy!  I used about a tbsp for most and mixed them together.  Rub a pea sized amount onto your lips.  I now have a scrub to last the rest of the dryer months.

Try it and then let me know what you think.  Your lips will thank me. (The photos are in b&w.  I had to.  It looked like a sample of something else altogether.)
