A Lazy Person's Sugar Scrub for Dry Lips

December weather has been drying up my lips badly. I've increased my water intake and lip balm application to help combat some of it, but I still end up having to exfoliate dead skin nightly. I normally use my toothbrush to exfoliate every few days, but having to do it EVERY day kind of hurts. :|

A guest post on one of my favorite blogs wrote about a less painless and much easier way to exfoliate lips. None of that fancy schmancy extra-virgin-olive-oil-mixed-with-unspeakably-frilly-things shit, just plain old (pot) lip balm and sugar.

The "recipe" called for a smooth, non-sticky lip balm, and I felt like using something citrusy, so I used this:
Satsuma Shimmer Lip Balm
The Body Shop Born Lippy Satsuma Shimmer Lip Balm

Refined sugar was also one of the ingredients, but the kitchen was out of that. I've found that brown sugar works just as well too.

Anyway, all you do is put some lip balm on your finger, dip that finger into the sugar, then scrub gently onto your lips. Simple, painless and delicious!

  1. Wow pretty easy technique! Will definitely try this because I'm sick of brushing my lips every few days and not wearing lipstick anytime I want. Thanks! :)
