Dry lips are very common during summer and winter seasons. Drinking excessive caffeine, smoking, dehydration and many more contribute to parched and crusty lips. Moreover, a layer of dead skin makes it annoying and you end up pulling the skin resulting in bleeding and darker spots on the lips. Errr.. That sounds ugly. So I came with simple idea of super easy sugar scrub that is going to make your lips super kissable again!

Brown sugar works as an exfoliater while olive oil gently nourishes and moisturizes your lips. Honey contain with healing properties recovers your lips as quickly as possible.
Homemade Brown Sugar Lip Scrub
- 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon of pure organic honey
- Small plastic container (you may use empty bottle of your used lip balm)
- Bowl and 1 spoon
Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil with 1 tablespoon of honey. Add 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and mix all these ingredients to make a smooth, fine paste. Keep mixing it until you know the ingredients are blended well.
Pour lip scrub into your glass container and close it with the lid. Make sure to write a date on the lid of the bottle so you can keep track of how you’ve been using it. Also, since homemade scrubs excluded of the preservatives and won’t last long and thus, the date mentioned on the lid will remind you the expiry date of it. Lip scrub should last for approximately two to four weeks and you should store it in the refrigerator.
