Beauty DIY Series: Mint Sugar Lip Scrub

Winter is fast approaching us and the last thing you need when it comes to applying your party season lip colour is dry, chapped, flaking lips underneath. Last year, a home made pout polish was my absolute saviour and is extremely easy to conjure up with the help of a few everyday ingredients from your own kitchen cupboard..

What you will need:

2 tablespoons sugar

♥ 1 tablespoon honey

♥ 1 tablespoon olive oil 

 (optional) 1 drop peppermint oil

Mix all ingredients together, add a little water if you find the consistency too thick, then transfer into a small container. Press a warm wash cloth onto the lips for a minute or so, this helps to soften and lift any dead skin. Apply a small amount of the scrub to the lips and gently exfoliate. Remove by wiping away with the warm wash cloth and finish by applying your favourite lip balm to instantly lock in moisture. Store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, repeating daily or every other day, depending on lip condition, and prepare to be amazed ;-)

Let me know what you think and if there is anything you'd like to see as part of my DIY beauty series!
