DIY Lip Scrub

Things got pretty cold here this past week, and cold weather issues that I always forget about started to appear.  My number one cold weather complaint?  Dry, chapped lips.  Every winter, I try everything I can to find relief for my lips, but it's always such a struggle.  Between hot showers, daily allergy medicine, and cranking up the heat, my lips suffer.


This year, I decided to try a DIY lip scrub that I found on Pinterest.  To my pleasant surprise, this might just be the answer to my problems.  And bonus, I had almost everything in my kitchen!  The recipe was totally simple and the result was a pretty, very tasty exfoliant that left my lips super soft.


Here is the super easy recipe:

1 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon honey

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 teaspoon Vaseline (optional- I left this out)

food coloring (I used pink.  Careful, a little goes a long way!)


Combine all ingredients in a bowl and transfer to a small jar or container.  Then just take a small amount of the scrub and rub it gently onto your lips (I applied mine with a Q-Tip).  Rinse with water and apply your favorite lip balm.  


Use it twice a week for soft, smooth lips.  Couldn't be easier!!
