It’s no secret that during the winter your skin gets super dry. And unfortunately, your lips are not excluded from that equation. But I have a solution!
My younger sister has super chapped lips and she got fed up with it. So she decided to make her own cure. A lip scrub.
Now, I am not lying when I say that this is some of the best stuff I’ve ever used on my own lips. It makes them feel like silk.
So today I thought I would share this magical formula with you (with my sister’s approval, of course).
- Brown Sugar
You’ll also need a container and some spoons. Possibly a mixing bowl if you have a peeve about that kind of thing (aka my sister).
Now, the ratio of this lip scrub is one part vaseline, one part brown sugar, and three parts honey.
To begin, you will put your vaseline into your mixing bowl.
We made a very small batch simply for this post, so you will probably need more than what we use.
Next, you add about the same amount of brown sugar to your mix.
I usually prefer a bit more brown sugar in my batches. I like having more exfoliation in my lip scrubs.
Third, you add A TON of honey. Just go wild. I won’t judge you. Get in there with that golden goodness.
We ended up adding a lot more honey as we mixed. Just be open to possibly having to change your mixture a bit as you go along. It’s really based on personal preference how you want to make it.
Then transfer it to your container (if you used a separate container… my sister)
And that’s it! Your lip scrub is complete. If you decide to make it, let me know how it goes. See you tomorrow.
