scrub those winter lips away

chapped lips suck! period. 

here's a homemade scrub recipe that will say goodbye to those cracks and HeLlLoOoO to lipstick!

All you’ll need is: 1 tsp of coconut oil, 1 tsp of raw honey, 1.5 – 2 TB of raw/granulated sugar mixed, and a dash of lemon juice.   

Coconut Oil = vit E & K, polyphenols are anti aging, & fatty acids that moisturize w/o breakouts
Raw Honey = natural antibacterial, amino acids that moisturize. Raw is better bc it hasn’t lost it’s healing properties.
Raw Sugar = produces glycolic acid/alpha hydroxy which exfoliates & stimulates collagen production – anti aging
Lemon Juice = vit C & citric acid brighten skin, scars, and exfoliates.
PSST!!! Use left overs for an entire facial scrub!
{sound the fire alarm!!!} WARNING: rub at your own risk – I don’t want to get blasted with DIY gone wrong photos bc you went scrub happy. Avoid sun exposure bc of the natural acids in the mask. Any leftovers should be stored in the fridge.
