DIY Lip Scrub With Honey & Sugar

During the cold days you will easily get dry lips and get flakes >.<" EEK...! Putting heaps of vaseline on it won't remove the flakes. However, don't waste your money on lip scrub products. You can easily make one at home within 1-2 minutes. All you need is an empty bowl/plate, a spoon, a small empty container, honey and brown or white sugar. Most of the people will have this at home.

You will need:
1 teaspoon of brown or white sugar
1 teaspoon of honey

Mix it together with your spoon and it will look like this:
Check the consistency, if you want it more abrasive add more sugar. If you want it less abrasive add some more honey ;). And voila~ here is your lip scrub. Put a bit of lip scrub on your fingers and scrub it on your lips for a few seconds (you can also use a toothbrush instead of your fingers). When you're done remove it with a wet towel and put some lip balm on your lips to moisturize it again. Your lips will feel smooth, soft and flakes free. It's really a cheap and effective lip scrub ^__^. With that amount you can use the scrub for like 2-3 times. You can leave the rest of the lip scrub in an empty container and you can use it the next time again.

Don't use this scrub when you have a wound around the lip area or if you have herpes labialis.

  2. @Michelle.. Hmm.. these are two natural products that you can normally eat, so i actually think that it won't really have negative effects on your lips =).

  7. This is a great tutorial. I've tried a lip scrub once with sugar and vaseline, but didn't like how greasy the vaseline was on my lips. Can I ask what type of honey you are using? It looks a lot more gelatinous than the ones I normally see in grocery stores :)

  8. @Rinny, It's tropical honey which you have to scoop out of the jar xD i'm keeping the honey in the kitchen where it's a bit cold.. Because of the cold weather it became a bit gelatinous haha.
