DIY: 2-Ingredient Lip Scrub

I love this lip scrub- it's so easy to make and my lips feel so smooth after! | The Refreshanista

Let me start by saying I have been having a major issue with dry, chapped lips lately. The air in my building is so dry. I put on a thick layer of lip balm before bed but when I wake up I have dry, flaky lips- so annoying! We all know, from experience, that picking at dry lips only makes it much much worse. So I whipped up this super easy lip scrub and voila! A few minutes later I had smooth, soft lips 🙂 

You more than likely already have these two ingredients in your pantry already. Just plain white sugar and honey 🙂 The sugar gently scrubs off dry skin while the honey hydrates, making it the perfect remedy for chapped lips. I also love that this scrub is all-natural and you don’t have to worry if you get some in your mouth while you’re scrubbing- it’s totally edible 😉

After scrubbing, apply an all-natural lip balm for maximum moisture. This is also a good routine to do before applying lipstick or lipgloss, you’ll have a smooth canvas and your lips won’t crack during the day!
