Exfoliation of lips is as important as moisturizing them.
Why bother to buy expensive lip scrubs when you can make one at home? Its cheap and extremely easy so lets start :
What will you need?
- 1 tsp Sugar (granulated or crushed)
- 1 tsp Honey
- 1 drop Vanilla essence
- Mixing bowl and a toothpick
- Small lip balm container, emptied and sterilized (dip it in boiling water)
Mix all the above ingredients together in a bowl and fill it in your favorite small container. I like to make this in small quantities as I have to dip my fingers in the container to use the. It smells really nice, the sugar does the exfoliation and the honey will moisturize the lips besides you don’t have to worry about it accidentally getting into your mouth because it is edible too 🙂
Rub the scrub on your lips and then wipe it off, don’t wet your lips first because the sugar granules will dissolve. Follow with a lip balm. Enjoy smooth lips in a jiffy!
You can experiment with this recipe by replacing vanilla with peppermint oil or other food flavors that you like example: pineapple, strawberry etc.
A non-edible variant of this scrub is to use Vaseline petroleum jelly instead of honey.
