DIY Lip Scrub

There are certain things I think you shouldn’t need to spend lots of money on when it comes to beauty. As the colder months are approaching I think it’s important to take care of your lips from getting dry and chapped. My go to product is definitely Carmex, but it is also important to scrub your lips and remove dead skin cells as well. So I have made my own lip scrub and will show you how you can too with simple ingredients that most of you will already have!

What you will need:
Sugar (you can use brown or white)
Lime or lemon juice
You can also add food colouring or flavouring
A container to store it in

1.      Mix the sugar with a teaspoon of honey (this does depend on how much you want to make) and make sure it is a thick consistency.
2.      Then add a squeeze of lime juice and stir.
3.      You can then add the mixture into an airtight container to use again.
4.      Then to apply gently rub into your lips (but not too hard) and wipe away with warm water.
This will leave you with super soft lips and is great because it costs next to nothing!
I will say I did make mine a bit too runny and this can be messy to apply so just make sure you only add a small amount of honey and add a bit at a time.

  5. I would really prefer to know when there is a method to post short stories, and
    ongoing episodes for the story online and that it gets legitimate copyright
    on a site. I want to avoid sending my material to obtain copyright
    each time I make an update to my stories. The end result is that
    I wish to enjoy getting online feedback and never get stolen
