Here’s a quick and simple sugar scrub to soften dry/flakey lips:
- Load some lip balm (a smooth one, not sticky — I prefer Rosebud Strawberry Lip Balm) onto one of your fingers.
- Dip the finger into some plain old granulated white sugar (keep a small jar for beauty purposes in your vanity).
- Rub the sugar balm mix all over your lips to exfoliate, wiping clean with a tissue.
It’s a great (and great tasting) alternative to more expensive lip scrubs and takes practically no time at all. Do it before bed, and then slap on a little more lip balm for lusciously soft lips the following morning.
