DIY Honey and Sugar Lip Scrub

As we head into the middle of winter, the temperatures are only getting colder! This means staying proactive on using those moisturizing products that will keep our skin super hydrated. Going out to a drugstore to grab a lip balm is easy, but what’s even easier is being able to create your own lip scrub using natural products you’ll often find at home! Two simple ingredients combined that will have your lips insanely smooth are sugar and honey! The sugar is what will exfoliate the lips, while the honey gives them a moisturize feel. Check out these quick, easy steps below to create the easiest DIY lip scrub!
