Dry, Chapped Lips? Here's a Remedy...



We’ve all been there a time or two… or 50. Lol Dry, chapped lips. What a pain! But there is an easy and affordable way to solve this issue. I used to buy lip scrubs, and they can get pricey depending on the brand and where you buy them. Then, I figured out how to make my own and it has been working like a charm :)
  • Make a fast lip scrub using coarse, raw sugar and water. Put a teaspoon of sugar into the palm of your hand. With your finger, mix a few drops of water into the sugar to make a paste, and then spread it on your lips with your fingertip. Lick it away or rinse your lips with warm water, then apply a layer of olive oil and let it soak in.
-OR-
  • Try a honey lip scrub by mixing a teaspoon of honey, a teaspoon of baking soda and a few drops of olive oil in your hand. Smear it gently into your lips and let it sit for a few minutes. Rub your lips together to remove extra dead skin, and then rinse it away with warm water. Apply more olive oil to your lips while they’re still wet, and blot dry with a clean, soft cloth.
You can use the above everyday or every other day, as needed.
Say hello to smooth, soft lips!!
