My Favorite Beauty DIY by l3xiluthor on Polyvore
Tired of having chapped lips? Well fret no more because I have a simple diy solution for you. These are three ingredients that almost everyone has at home, so it's not a hassle to create this quick fix. A sugar lip scrub is both moisturizing and exfoliating. All you need is:
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- squeeze of honey
- 1/4 teaspoon water
Simply combine these ingredients together, and use your fingers to scrub it on your lips. Rinse, and apply your favorite lip balm. Easy right? It's great to do this at night before bed so you wake up with beautiful, soft lips.
The reason this scrub works is because the sugar gently exfoliates your lips, while the honey helps them retain their moisture. Honey has many benefits such as moisturizing, as well as protecting your skin from the sun and helping it stay rejuvenated. The water is to help it all dissolve together and not let the sugar be too rough on your lips.
