Honey and Sugar Create the Perfect Lip Scrub

Chapped lips happen to the best of us. As much as you try to smooth them with lip balm, that fiery new red lipstick just doesn’t pack the same wallop. Now there is an easy way to get perfectly smooth lips, without spending any extra cash. Make this one at home with a few delicious items already in your kitchen.

Things you will need:
1. Olive oil (or Jojoba oil if you have it)
2. Honey
3. Brown or white sugar
4. A small bowl

Combine 1 teaspoon of the olive oil with 1 tablespoon of honey until the mixture is smooth. Add 1 tablespoon of sugar and mix it all together until the texture becomes gritty. Transfer the mixture into a small bowl and put it in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Rub the mixture onto your lips for a few minutes until you feel they’re nice and exfoliated. Clean them off with a warm washcloth and then practice leaving vampy lipstick marks on your mirror.


PROS: Easy and uses household items.

CONS: Items may not be in your home/may not exfoliate evenly.

HOW TO BUY: Grocery Store
