For smooth kissable lips, even in the dead of winter, our in house makeup expert, Michael J’ann Robinson, has a beauty tip that works great and is easy on the wallet. To create your own homemade lip scrub simply mix one teaspoon of olive oil and one tablespoon of sugar together to form a paste. Rub it on your lips to for a minute or so, to remove all the dead cells, before wiping off with a warm wash cloth. Apply your favorite moisturizing lip balm and you are ready to go! Michael recommends storing the leftover homemade lip scrub in a small tupperware container or jar for up to two weeks.
*You can also try substituting honey for the olive oil. Honey does not have the same moisturizing effects as the olive oil but it is great for exfoliation.
If you are feeling a little adventurous, we also found a list, courtesy of Brit & Co, of 23 types of homemade lip scrubs, made with everything from peppermint to ginger! Check out the list here.
