You know when your lips get nasty, dry, and cracked? The kind of dry where your lips peel and bleed, and you can’t eat or drink anything for two days until your bleeding and broken lips heal enough to go out in public?
Oh, okay now I feel super awkward.
I’m a big believer in lip exfoliation. It takes you from whoa to WHOA in approximately 2.2 seconds. There aren’t many things in life that can blow your hair back in quite the same way. Especially when you can make your own lip scrub at home, in the comfort of your own kitchen with just a handful of natural, organic, delicious ingredients. We’re talking about some seriously tasty beauty business.
Would you like the recipe so you can make some of your very own lip scrub at home?
I thought you might.
- 1/2 tsp honey
- 1/2 tsp granulated white sugar
- 1/2 – 1 tsp fresh squeezed lime juice
Here’s how to make the scrub:
Using a tiny little dish from your kitchen mix the sugar and honey together until combined. Add lime juice and mix until it the scrub has reached a semi-runny consistency.
Use a spoon, a small paintbrush, or your fingers to cover your lips in the scrub; gently rub it all over. Repeat as needed until lips are completely smooth and buttery. The sugar acts as the exfoliant, the lime rejuvenates the skin, and the honey is a natural anti-bacterial and cleanser. Boom.
When you’re all done exfoliating, apply a coat of your favorite go-to lip-gloss or chap-stick and bask in your beauty. You’re amazing. Pretty too. Have you lost weight? There’s something extra sparkly about you right now.
— p.s. I would never in a million and a half years wear red lipstick without doing this first. Never. Just wanted to put that out there in case you were thinking of wearing red lipstick tomorrow with chapped lips.
