Luxurious lip scrub

Lips looking a little rough around the edges? Try making my favorite quick and highly effective scrub to make your lips look smooth and full! All you need is honey, olive oil, and brown sugar. The honey is antibacterial so it kills any germs while the oil moisturizes. The brown sugar acts as the exfoliant.

Just take a small container and fill about halfway with the brown sugar, put in a small amount of honey, and enough olive oil to create a paste-like scrub. Mix all of the ingredients together and you get an extremely cheap scrub to de-flake and make lips feel luscious. Wet your lips and apply the scrub, rubbing in gentle circular motions. I recommend doing this only once or twice a week as your lips can be very sensitive.

If you don't want to use this or any scrub on your lips, you can take a damp toothbrush and rub over your lips to remove dead skin and flakes.

I hope these tips help keep your lips looking and feeling better than ever before!
