It’s summer here in New Zealand, my least favourite season for many many reasons. I prefer winter fashion, I hate getting hot and sunburnt and sticky, and I hate feeling like it has to be the “perfect summer” every year. Summer is just icky.
Physically one of my biggest problems with summer is that I always dry out, especially my legs and lips. No matter how well I look after my lips, they always end up sad and cracked in summer. And while I love Lush lip scrubs, with my money issues I can’t justify buying them when I could make my own with household ingredients!
So here’s a very simple quick lip scrub I made at home. It might not be the prettiest scrub around, but it works wonders and it tastes yummy too 😉
So, you will need: olive oil, liquid honey, brown sugar, a teaspoon, and a dish/bowl for mixing.
Mix together one teaspoon each of the oil, honey and sugar. If you want a more heavy-duty scrub (like me!), add another half teaspoon of sugar 🙂
As I said, it’s not the prettiest lip scrub. In this pic the oil is sitting a bit on the top, but it doesn’t affect how well it works on the lips.
Grab a fingerful and get scrubbing! Dry flakey lips are a thing of the past 🙂
To remove, you can either wash the scrub off, remove it with a tissue… or lick it off (om nom nom).
Follow up with a dash of balm and your favourite lippy ^_^
Til next time!
