Nobody likes chapped lips and many women don’t realize; if you have chapped lips, your lipstick won’t go on good or look good! So when you’re chapped here’s an inexpensive remedy!!!
Flavoring (optional) you could use vanilla.
Food coloring (optional)
Step 1: Put a tablespoon of caster/granulated sugar into your mixing bowl. This is what will actually scrub the lips and make them smooth. You can add more than that, but this makes a good amount. If you do wish to change how much of any ingredient you put in, make sure you change the amounts of the other ingredients accordingly.
Step 2: Add the Olive Oil. About half a teaspoon should be enough, but there is not really any fixed amount. The olive oil is the moisturizing part so your lips don’t dry out. Mix the olive oil into the sugar. You know you have the right amount when the sugar is slightly yellow in color. The mixture should not be liquidly, but should be more of the texture of the sugar. Add more olive oil according to the texture of the mixture.
Step 3: Add the honey. Literally, you only want a dribble of honey, just to stick the mixture together. You don’t want it to be too sticky, but you want the mixture to be stuck together.
Step 4: Add the Flavorings (optional). If you want to add flavorings, now is the time. You could add a drop or two of Peppermint Extract, Vanilla Essence, Lemon juice, anything goes. Don’t add too much, you want the flavor to be subtle.
Step 5: Add the Coloring (optional). A little bit of food coloring can make your lip scrub look pretty. Try adding a tiny bit of pink or red colored food coloring, as it can stain your lips a little bit and give them a pink glow. Therefore, do not use blue/green/black food coloring!
Step 6: Store your scrub in a small container and add to the lips whenever you want to make them smooth. Enjoy!
