DIY: Honey and Sugar Lip Scrub

Photo: LUSH Canada lip scrubs (which in my personal opinon is overpriced - $8.95/tin)
 
Dry and flaky skin on the lip is irritating and and not attractive. I have such problems especially during the harsh winter months. However, exfoliating your lips with a simple homemade remedy recipe (that is all natural) would improve the feel and appearance of your lips.  
Honey and Sugar Lip Scrub

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 tablespoon of white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of brown sugar
  • A few drops of olive oil

Apply the mixture on your lips. Then gently rub the paste over the lips to remove dead skin. Wash your lips and apply lip balm.  Store the unused product in the fridge.
