Dry, flaky lips can make your lips appear aged.  If you use a lip scrub your lips will become hydrated and the flakes will be rubbed away.  I prefer to make my own lip scrubs instead of buying them at drugstores.  Here is a simple lip scrub recipe using only two ingredients that everyone should have in their kitchen.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tbsp brown sugar

Directions:

  1. Combine the two ingredients together until it forms a paste.
  2. Apply to lips in a circular motion and rinse with water.
  3. Seal your lips with a moisturizing lip balm.

Tips:

  • Store the left overs in a air tight container in your fridge for 3 weeks.
  • Add a drop of vanilla extra for a vanilla flavor
  • Add 3 drops of essential oil, such as peppermint oil.
  • Substitute sweet almond oil or jojoba oil
  • If you don’t have brown sugar on hand then use white sugar instead.
  • Use a SPF lip balm for more protection.
