{How To} Make Your Own Lip Exfoliant

January 13, 2011

I've been doing everything I know to keep my lips moisturized and hydrated this winter, to no avail. So, last night I decided to search Youtube for some home remedies and I was excited to find a great tutorial {Michelle Phan's Kissable ♥ Lips DIY} on making my own lip exfoliant with things I already had in my kitchen. Two words: Sweet success.

What you need: Honey, Sugar, Vaseline Petroleum Jelly (As you can see, I substituted Carmex.)
How to mix: Start with 1 tsp. of sugar in a small container {that you can also store it in} and add 2 Tbsp. of honey. Last, add a small amount of Vaseline. If from a tube, the amount you release would be just about an inch and a half in length. Mix all of the ingredients until you have a honey-hued gritty balm.
Application: Apply the mixture to your lips the same way you would a lip balm and smooth across to help the sugar remove any dead skin. After you have thoroughly buffed, removed the mixture by with a damp cloth.
Voila! Softer lips in no time.
