DIY Beauty - Lip Scrub + Mask

It’s that time of year, again, when lips are often drier than dry and there are few things less sexy than dry, chapped, irritated lips. So, let’s talk about treating our lips with a spa day perfect for your pout.

Let’s start with my absolute favorite and most used DIY beauty recipe, a super simple lip scrub made with ingredients you’re bound to have in your pantry. All you need is honey, olive oil, and brown sugar. There are no exact measurements for this so just combine the sugar, honey, and oil until you get a thick paste like consistency.

Once your scrub is the perfect texture you want to apply the mixture to slightly damp lips and massage with small, circular motions. I like to remove with a warm, wet cloth because the fibers also help provide a little exfoliating action.

Once your lips are sufficiently smooth and flake free you can apply more honey directly to your lips. Honey is kind of a magical, mystical beauty ingredient and does so much good for stressed or dehydrated skin (or lips, in this case). Massage the honey on your lips for a few minutes and then wipe off. You can also use honey and yogurt mixed together for an even richer experience.

Then apply your favorite lip balm, or pure coconut oil, to lock in the moisture on your now baby soft lips!

Let me know in the comments section if you have a favorite lip balm or DIY trick for making sure your lips are smooth and healthy.
