Unfortunately, the cold weather brings us super dry skin. So it’s important that we stay moisturized, right? Our lips are one of the most sensitive parts of our skin and needs a lot of TLC. Aside from keeping your lips hydrated all winter long, it’s important to get all that dry skin off. Here is my absolute go-to DIY Lip Scrub. It takes less than five minutes and will leave your lips soft and moisturized.

What you’ll need:

We’re going to keep it simple. Combine the honey and the brown sugar until everything sticks together. It’s going to have a gooey consistency. To apply, I suggest you do this over a sink. Dampen your lips with warm water. Scoop some scrub with your finger and rub the scrub into you lips in small circular motions for about one minute. Once you’re done, rinse with warm water, pat your lips dry and use your favorite lip balm. For a more vigorous scrubbing, instead of rubbing the lip scrub in with your finger, you may use a toothbrush. Using a toothbrush alone, gets rid of the dry skin on your lips.
